New Shuttle Times – Effective January 2016

After much review, the NNTMA has come to its final determination for Flyer Shuttle routes and times to be effective January 3, 2016. Although the North Natomas and downtown routes will remain the same, some adjustments have been made to the schedule. Currently, it takes the shuttle longer to complete the downtown route than the current scheduled times reflect, so we’ve adjusted those to be more accurate.

Review the new scheduled times here.

Also of note, we understand that traffic will be profoundly affected with the completion of the Golden 1 Center. We are continuously working with the City of Sacramento, Regional Transit, and the Golden 1 Center personnel to stay abreast of traffic control plans for the venue and downtown area. We aim to ensure the Flyer’s service is impacted as little as possible.

Thank you for your continued ridership, and please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns, Julie@nntma.org or 419-9955.

50 Bikes for 50 Kids is Gearing Up for 2016

On Monday, January 18, 2016, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a National Day of Service, community volunteers will join forces in North Natomas to help 50 kids transform bike parts into 50 ready-to-ride bicycles.

50 Bikes for 50 Kids is a community service event that matches 50 well-deserving youth with teams of volunteers to assemble a bike for each child on the team.

Prior to the event, children between the ages of 9-17 are nominated by local organizations. Volunteers get prepared by attending a class, taught by professional bicycle mechanics, on the basics of bicycle assembly. The volunteers pass this knowledge onto the youngsters during the assembly of the bike, all while getting valuable hands-on experience in teamwork, volunteerism, and community.

For some recipients, this is the first sense of ownership they have ever had. This feeling will become ingrained in their memory and will serve them for the rest of their lives.

You can be a part of this epic ride!

Return of Bike Doc

After 3 1/2 years of fixing North Natomas bicycles, Bike Doc needed a tune-up of its own.

The NNTMA is excited to announce that Bike Doc is back and better than ever. This fall, the mobile bicycle service station will be at two local events: Creekside Fair on October 18th and a Fix-It Fair at Natomas Park Elementary on October 20th.

Stay tuned for upcoming event dates for the opportunity to get your bikes ready for spring and summer riding. A full line up will be scheduled for Spring 2016 and will be released in the new year.

Neighbors, Bicycles, and Treats

On September 5th, twenty bicycle riders strapped on their helmets and smiles, and took to the streets for a 21-mile bike ride through Natomas and beyond, through downtown and Capitol Park. Midway the group stopped at New Roma Bakery for treats and revelry before returning to North Natomas.

Sound fun? Join us on October 3rd for the final Neighborhood Bike Ride of 2015. The group will roll through our city's major parks including Discovery Park and Miller Park, then onward into William Land Park. After a delicious stop at Marie’s Donuts, we will swing by the Tile House – a mosaic-tiled landmark. On our way home we'll pass by the Blue Diamond Almond Factory and ride over the C Street Bridge.

Ride departs from the North Natomas TMA office at 1918 Del Paso Road at 8:30 a.m.

Bring water, a helmet, and an extra bike tube.  No need to RSVP – just show up!
