Ridership Survey Coming Your Way

We want to hear from you in regards to the Flyer Shuttle service and how it can work best for you.

Starting on Monday, August 25th the NNTMA will be conducting an online rider survey. It will only take a few minutes of your time. We ask all riders, and future riders, to complete the survey so we can make our service the best it can be.

Why I Ride – It Makes Cents (and More)

Five dinners, a shopping spree or a night in Napa. That’s what an extra $200 in your pocket can buy, and the amount that Flyer Rider Shan Yee saves per month by taking the Shuttle to downtown Sacramento each week. But, dollar and cents are not at the heart of why Yee rides: a clean environment for future generations and a little relaxation on the way to work are just about priceless, she says.

New ROP Course: Bike Tech

The North Natomas TMA and Natomas Unified School District are proud to announce a visionary addition to the curriculum taught at North Natomas’ Inderkum High School -- Bike Tech.

Similar to auto shop in structure, Bike Tech is an ROP course that will teach high-schoolers the ins and outs of bicycle mechanics. Students will experience a comprehensive bicycle educational program, teaching them the mechanical fundamentals of bicycle assembly and repair while fostering safe cycling habits, environmental awareness, and healthy living. By the end of the semester-long course, the kids will know how to disassemble, assemble, repair and troubleshoot multiple kinds of bicycles.

Read about the career opportunities students will discover.

Natomas at Nite Ends on an Icy Note on Friday, August 29th

You've seen it a zillion times, your kids have been singing it non-stop since 2013, and there's a good chance you are already humming 'Let it Go' in your head. Nevertheless, Frozen is coming to Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby's Movie in the Park on Friday, August 29th at 8pm. It will be far better with all your friends and neighbors than at home in your living room, where the movie has been on perpetual repeat for months.

So, grab your bike and cruise over to the North Natomas Regional Park where the awesome Bike Valet folks will keep your ride safe while you enjoy (yet again) the wonder that is Frozen.

Sacramento Transportation Authority Seeking Taxpayer Oversight Committee Applicants

The Sacramento Transportation Authority (STA) is looking for applicants with finance or transportation planning backgrounds to fill two upcoming vacancies on the Measure A Independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee.

Applications are due by Thursday, Sept. 18, and are available along with additional information on the STA website.

The Independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee was created in 2004 when Sacramento County voters approved Measure A, a 30-year extension of the half-cent transportation sales tax that under STA management is funding road, transit, maintenance and other improvements. 

The committee helps ensure that the Measure A program is functioning as promised to taxpayers.  It includes three voting public members with municipal finance, transportation planning or project management experience.  Committee meetings are held quarterly and voting members serve four-year terms.
