Striving for a Better Commute

Here at the NNTMA, our most important mission is to serve our constituent base - the residents and businesses of North Natomas. One of the ways we do this is through regular Flyer ridealongs and surveys where we get feedback from our riders. Last August we conducted a shuttle survey to identify areas of rider concern. When the results were tallied, we found that our riders wanted, in order: more service, less wait time between shuttles and to alleviate overcrowded loops. While we determined the optimal solution is to add service, it became clear after working towards this goal that budget issues would make adding service unlikely in 2015. As an alternative, we are now in the review stage of proposed schedule adjustments and once a determination has been made, we will share our findings.

       
Adding service in 2015 is unlikely due to budget constraints, however, 2016 may result in increases to our bottom line, due to the projected lift in the building moratorium.

Currently, some of our downtown routes and stop times are in review to better match traffic patterns on J Street, specifically.

Upon implementation, small schedule adjustments may happen as soon as spring, with more comprehensive changes scheduled for September 1st.

Ride Like the Wind, into the Wind

It’s been a blustery day or two around here and for all of our fellow cyclists, both new and intermediate, a windy road can be a woeful one. Here are some tips to help you brave the blasts and stay safe, too.

1. Find the draft. Make riding into a breeze, a breeze by teaming up with other cyclists and drafting - finding that wind break behind the front cyclist. Be careful not to clip one another.
2. Chew the handlebars. Sometimes you just have to grin and bear it. So get low, get your head down and drop gear. More resistance means more blood pumping through the veins!
3. Don’t cross a crosswind. These gusts are dangerous because they can steer you into fellow cyclists or even motorists. Keep your back as horizontal as possible and your upper body, including your arms and elbows, loose.

50 Bikes for 50 Kids 2015

On Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service, community volunteers joined forces in North Natomas to help 50 kids transform bike parts into 50 ready-to-ride bicycles. The day was made possible by generous donations from caring businesses and organizations that make this a better community to thrive in, as well as amazing volunteers that gave their time to mentor local youth.

Thanks to our volunteer photographers, there are many wonderful pictures showcasing the power of mentorship, volunteerism, and community.  Check out the event photos here.

Also, check out 50 Bikes for 50 Kids 2015 via the volunteers that made it great with #50Bikes2015!
