Courteous Flyers are the Best Flyers

We know that not everyone is a morning person, and that catching the shuttle to work or back home again can catch you foggy, groggy or just plain out of sorts. However, being a good bus-mate goes a long way with your fellow Flyer riders so we've been told.

•    Please take your trash with you off of the shuttle.
•    Keep it classy: watch your language.
•    Keep your phone conversations outside the shuttle.
•    One fare, one seat. Your baggage should be on your lap or under your feet. Other passengers should not have to ask you to move your things.
•    Small spaces equal strong smells. Please apply fragrance after you leave the shuttle.

RT Text Alerts = Flyer 411

Did you know that riders can opt to receive text messages or emails that alert them to important Flyer updates and information including late shuttle alerts, estimated time of shuttle arrival, a bus locator map and service outage alerts?

Just go to the RT Tracker website, create an account (or sign in), click on “My Routes”, then choose your bus and what alerts you would like to receive and in what format. From start to finish it takes about three minutes. No more calling or trying to search the Internet from your phone; the information comes automatically to you!

Thanks for the Feedback!

We would like to take a minute to thank all of you who took time out of your day to complete our rider survey. We depend on your input to keep things running smoothly. Surveys like the one we recently distributed are vital to the operation of the Flyer Shuttle service. Survey results are currently being tallied and discussed. Thank you for your support!

Mark Your Calendar for Fall Riding

The North Natomas TMA is proud to present our upcoming Neighborhood Bike Ride fall schedule where sunshine, biking, and being social are all included in the low cost of free! The first upcoming ride is our Discover Ninos Parkway ride on Saturday, September 20th. We will host breakfast on our way to the Ninos Parkway in South Natomas, an unexplored bike path that we will discover by way of the Garden Highway, Discovery Park and the American River Bike Trail. 18 miles total.

On Saturday, October 11th, we’ll cycle 25 miles on the West Sacramento ride. On this ride, we'll roll through downtown West Sac, south on the River Walk Bike Trail and the Clarksburg Branchline Trail, and nab a table at Nugget Market for goodies in Southport - hosted by the NNTMA. On the way back, we’ll take in ski boats, the beautiful Riverfront Promenade and cruise by the Crocker Art Museum as we head for home.

Curious and want to know more? Check out our  #goTOGETHER - Neighborhood Bike Ride video.

Rides depart from the North Natomas TMA office at 1960 Del Paso Road at 8:30 a.m. Always bring water, a helmet and an extra bike tube.  No need to RSVP – just show up!

Build a Better Future – Some Assembly Required, Sponsors Needed!

Attention Natomas businesses! We need your help. Our 3rd annual 50 Bikes for 50 Kids event is just around the corner and we can’t do it without you.

50 Bikes for 50 Kids is a community-based event that matches 50 well-deserving youth with teams of volunteers to assemble a bike for the child on the team. United, the community will give local kids the gift of healthy recreation, teamwork and a head start on helping us build a sustainable future.

We need local businesses and organizations to provide sponsorships for the bicycles. Sponsor a bicycle for $250! You will be listed as a bike sponsor on all event signage and will receive a thank you after the event showcasing the youth and bicycle you sponsored.

For more  information, contact Abbey Harding at abbey@nntma.org or call 916.419.9955.
