Small Changes to Shuttle Service

Please be aware that, starting April 2nd, minor adjustments will be made to three of the current downtown stop locations and one Natomas route. The downtown changes include shifting the location of each bus stop about a half a block from the current position due to safety concerns. The stop changes are as follows:

S/W corner of J & 4th Streets changes to S/E corner of J & 3rd Streets at the RT Stop
S/E corner of J & 7th Streets changes to S/W corner of J & 8th Streets at the RT Stop
N/E corner of L & 14th Streets (Ma Jong’s) changes to N/W corner of L & 14th Streets at the RT Stop

All other downtown stops will REMAIN THE SAME.

We have also adjusted the first Eastside loop, scooting it up a few minutes to ensure everyone gets to their destination on time. This change will go into effect on April 2nd as well.

Please make sure to look at the latest schedule and map, both of which are posted online now.

Time is Ticking on Bike Rebates

If you need a new ride for spring, the time to take action is now as our Bike Rebate program is coming to an end.  Just fill out and submit an application on our website by April 15th to be in the running for up to 40 percent off a new bike (up to $250), bike accessory (up to $50) or children’s bike (up to $100).

Go to our website for the application. The award process is first come, first served and if you are awarded a rebate, you must attend a Cycling Clinic. (See below for more information.)

Cycling Clinics Around the Bend

So you are the proud owner of a rebate-inspired new bike… congratulations! A required next step if you are a lucky award recipient is our Cycling Clinic. The Clinics are also open to the public and anyone is welcome to join us. The clinic will refresh you on the rules of the road and answer any questions you may have about negotiating traffic and basic bike repair.

You only have to attend one session and feel free to bring a friend.

Classes are held in the evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the North Natomas Library’s Community Room on April 19th and May 8th. Just pick a date and we’ll see you there!

Shuttle Up Natomas

March whizzed by in a bus-tastic blur for us and residents as, together, we celebrated our new Natomas Flyer commuter service. In the “Shuttle Up Natomas” campaign, dozens of residents brought their appetites to the free St. Patrick’s Day pre-celebration breakfast where commuters and friends chowed down on food from two local food trucks, Mama Kim's and Wicked'Wich.

Later, Flyer enthusiasts participated in the St. Patty’s parade in Old Sac where our new CNG-fueled shuttle served as eco-friendly float. If you missed all of that hubbub, hopefully you got your hands on a handy door knob hanger, or Flyer Shuttle travel mug, or maybe you have seen one of our crisp new light pole banners, all designed to give a “hip, hip hooray!” for our improved fleet.

Social Media Mania

When you’re not chatting with your shuttle mate on the commute Downtown or pedaling in person with your neighbors, you can now connect with them and us on several social media sites!

  • Facebook.  Here you can check out upcoming events, community tips on commuting and biking and share photos and videos of NNTMA events. You can also request a highly coveted Flyer Shuttle Travel mug, if you missed out earlier, just by friending us. First come, first served.
  • Twitter. Stay in the know on upcoming events, shuttle news, announcements. You can also use it as a platform to connect with us and each other.
  • Pinterest!  This new site allows you to “pin” and share things of interest to you, just like you might do with an old-fashioned cork board.  On this social site, we’ve created a collection of all things biking, commuting and NNTMA.
    • Search “NNTMA” to find us.
  • YouTube. Videos coming soon so keep checking back!
