Flyer Shuttle Fare Increase

EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2017

$2.00/ride

  • Old $1.50 green tickets valid until 2/28/17
  • Starting 3/1/17, only $2.00 orange tickets will be accepted on the shuttle
  • Exchanges will only be made in-person at the NNTMA office (1918 Del Paso Road) between 2/1/17 and 3/31/17
    • Please be prepared to pay the price difference
    • No refunds will be issued

Another Successful 50 Bikes for 50 Kids

As the collective teamwork, smiles and elbow grease settle, we'd like to extend a huge thank you to the 56 businesses, organizations and individuals that donated to our 5th annual 50 Bikes for 50 Kids. In the words of one bike recipient: "I was surprised I was able to do this. Now I know how my bike was made and how it works."

We would like to extend a special thank you to the Natomas Bike Shop for supporting our event again this year. Each year John Buchanan and his staff provide invaluable support to this event. The shop contributes a large financial donation, mechanics attend the event to oversee the building process and Scott Meyer leads all the volunteer trainings prior to the event.

Thanks to the 924 total hours of dedication put forth, our community has helped youth build confidence, a community-minded mentality and a new way to embark on their path to independence and a sustainable future.

Local Businesses Get Green for Green

The NNTMA is happy to announce the recipients of our Transportation Improvement Grant (TIG) Program, a funding opportunity that supports North Natomas businesses as they use creativity and innovation to help reduce transportation issues at their business. The recipients and projects of this year's grants are as follows:

  • The Natomas Unified School District - the school district will use the funds to install a new Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station to encourage employees and visitors to use and choose electric vehicles over gas-powered ones.

  • Gateway Corporate Center located at 160 &180 Promenade Circle - these offices will put the funding toward new picnic tables to encourage employees to pass on driving to and from lunch.

  • Four Points by Sheraton - the North Natomas hotel will apply the grant toward a fleet of bikes for staff members to use to commute to and from work and reduce vehicle trips.

These small grants, awarded on a reimbursable basis, are designed to stimulate the local economy by providing the means to positively influence the transportation behaviors of customers and/or employees.

What is a Walking School Bus, You Ask?

Perhaps you have not heard of one of the most fun and engaging programs happening throughout North Natomas? The definition of a Walking School Bus is "an adult-led group of students who meet and walk together to school." We also like to think of it as a critical chance for family and community bonding, a way to weed out polluting traffic, and a time to get the body and mind in great shape at the start of the day!

Would you like to join us? Walking School Buses occur at the following schools; click your school for meet and departure times, maps, and more information.
