Special Flyer Service during Fix 50

In order to help alleviate North Natomas commuters’ strife during Fix 50, the NNTMA is adding more service and implementing special Park & Ride Flyer Shuttle service. Each weekday, a Flyer Shuttle will depart from Del Paso Marketplace three times in the morning, and will return to that location three times in the afternoon/evening. This shuttle will have the same downtown loop as the normally scheduled Flyer routes.

Park & Ride Flyer Shuttle schedules are subject to change based on ridership needs and traffic patterns. Be sure to check NNTMA.org for the most up to date schedules. After the first week of service, route times may be re-evaluated and adjusted. Complete this online form to provide valuable information about your schedule needs.

Park & Ride service begins on Tuesday, April 22nd.

This special service is subject to change or cancellation at any time.

RT Tracker service is not available for this shuttle, for shuttle tracking, call 556-0259.

Departs Del Paso & East Commerce at:
5:50 am, 7:10 am, 8:30 am

Begins downtown loop at J & 3rd at:
3:55 pm, 5:15 pm, 6:35 pm

Four Ways to Cruise Through May is Bike Month

The smell of magnolias, the touch of warm Sacramento sunshine, and the feel of your trusty two-wheeled steed as it delivers you to month-long fun and excitement: yes, May is Bike Month is almost upon us! The big question is: can North Natomas businesses, residents, students, and teachers surpass last year’s whopping total of 98,646 logged miles? Of course we can! This year the Sacramento region has a goal of 2 million miles and here’s how we can get there from here!

1.    Go for the socks! We know you love the MiBM socks and here’s how you can win them:

  • Use the bike rack on the Flyer Shuttle. Each time you do, you'll be entered into a weekly drawing.
  • Why bring your bike on the shuttle?
    • One-way commuting: one-way, part-way, or during inclement weather
      • Take the shuttle to work in the morning, and enjoy a leisurely ride home in the afternoon.
      • Ride in the morning for an energy burst to start your day.
      • Rain or weather prohibits your ride home.
    • Use your bike during the day to run errands, attend meetings around town, or enjoy a recreational ride during lunch.
    • Extend your commute – bike to your workplace from the Downtown loop.

2.    Neighborhood Rides + Other Adventures

  • Get into the spirit early on May 8th with a ride to Capitol BikeFest, a 21-mile jaunt to downtown that leaves at 9 a.m. from our office. Visit bike booths, eat popsicles and meet new biking buddies.
  • Grab your family and a picnic lunch as Sacramento’s Kidical Mass pays us a visit on May 18th. Meet up with other families for a kid friendly 2.5 mile ride starting at The Club at Natomas Park, and ending with a picnic and playtime. NNTMA will provide snacks, but families should pack their own lunch. We will meet at 10:30 a.m. and depart at 11 a.m.

3.    Record Your Rides!

  • Log all of your miles at MayisBikeMonth.com.
  • Share your MiBM adventures via photos. Selfies, bikes, friends, food, nature or any combination are perfect! #iBikeNN

4.    Bike to School Day - Breathe fresh air, reduce traffic and have fun!

  • Regency Park Elementary – 5/6
  • Natomas Park Elementary – 5/7
  • Witter Ranch Elementary – 5/8
  • Heron School – 5/9
  • H. Allen Hight Elementary – 5/14

Even More Bike Rides!

We whet your appetite with the list of bike adventures above and now it’s time to catch your second wind with even more Neighborhood Rides.

  • On May 10th we’ll be Gallivantin’ Around to the Sacramento Northern Trail, taking in beautiful farm country, Fisherman’s Lake and the Westshore bike paths. Refreshments will be hosted by NNTMA on the way back. This ride is 24 miles long. Ride departs at 8:30 a.m. from our office.
  • Ditch the engine and rely on your own energy to get where you're going on Bike to Work (or Errands/Pleasure) Day on May 15th. We’ll feed you a breakfast of champions from 6-9 a.m. at the east entrance of Sleep Train Arena & Truxel Rd. A group ride will depart at 8:30 a.m. for a pleasure cruise around town.
  • What would Sacramento be without The Parks? On this ride, tour three major grassy knolls, a donut shop and a weird artsy house all on June 7th. This ride is 24 miles and departs from our office.
  • Are you a planner? Go here for the full 2014 bike ride schedule.
