Flyer Etiquette

Today, we give you a few reminders on basic shuttle manners and etiquette for new, and not-so-new Flyer riders.

  • One man’s trash is not always another’s treasure. Please, take it all with you when you depart.
  • Keep it classy, North Natomas, and watch your language. We are a close-knit community shuttle with a strong bias against unsavory language.
  • Phone home? Please keep your bus mate in mind by keeping calls quiet and to a minimum.
  • One fare, one seat. This means anything without a pulse (purse, backpack, giant stuffed animal) needs to be on your lap or under your seat.
  • The smell of bus in the morning is better than any other - including heavy wafts of perfume or cologne. Spritz or splash after you’ve stepped off!
  • To sit or to stand? That is the question. Feel free to turn over your seat to elderly or disabled persons but refrain from demanding others to give up their seats for you.
  • All aboard efficiently! We ask that you have your ticket ready when you board so that you and your fellow shuttle riders get to work on time.

Take the Don’t Exhaust Me Pledge

You are what you breathe. Let that sink in as you think of all the idling cars waiting to drop off and pick up students each day at school. These cars are producing pollution that students have to walk through to get to class. Here are some startling facts from the Colorado Lung Association.

  • 1 minute of idling produces more carbon monoxide than 3 packs of cigarettes!
  • Asthma is the most common chronic illness among children and the largest cause of school absences.
  • Excessive exposure to air pollution can damage children’s developing lungs.
  • Asthma is the 3rd leading cause of hospitalization among children under 15.

Do your part to improve the air around your school - reduce school traffic. Take part in our “Don’t Exhaust Me Pledge” by walking or biking to school either from home or with the Walking School Bus at your school. Live too far to walk? Park at least three blocks away and walk the rest in.

Return your signed pledge to your school’s Walk & Bike to School program table to receive your “Don’t Exhaust Me” pin. Wear your pin with pride knowing you’re doing your part to make the air a little cleaner for those around you.

Take the pledge here.

Bike Rebate is Cruising Through May

NNTMA’s Bike Rebate Program may be just the right opportunity for you to get ready for spring riding.  Apply now for your opportunity to receive a rebate for a percentage of the cost of a new bike or accessory.

Alternate Route for Interstate 80 Weekend Construction Work

80 Across the Top project

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is urging motorists to use the eastbound Capital City Freeway (aka Business 80) as an alternate route to avoid delays during this weekend’s scheduled 55-hour closures on eastbound Interstate 80 in North Sacramento.
 

Caltrans will reduce eastbound Interstate 80 to two lanes and close ramp access at the Winters Street on-ramp and Longview Drive off-ramp from 10 p.m. Friday, March 20 through 5 a.m. Monday, March 23 due to mainline construction work. Traffic is expected to be very heavy eastbound throughout the “80 Across the Top” project from Interstate 5 to Watt Avenue.

For additional project information including detours go to www.80AcrossTheTop.com. For the latest highway traffic news, follow Caltrans District 3 on Twitter and Facebook.
