Earn Money Towards A New Bike

We are excited to announce a new program geared to get North Natomas adults ready to ride. Earn-a-Bike provides individuals who live or work in North Natomas with the opportunity to participate in a hands-on bicycle course to earn money towards a new bicycle.

The program is open to those 18 and over looking to use a bicycle to get to work, take their kids to school, visit friends, run errands…you name it. This is your chance to swap car trips for bicycle trips. The 14-hour course will cover bicycle-related topics in three main areas: bike maintenance, bike handling, and traffic skills navigation.

Enrollment is limited. Applicants will be selected based on a review of their application by a committee.

Apply Today! 
Application window closes August 15th.

The Flyer Shuttle is now ready to accept the Connect Card as fare. Connect Card is the Sacramento region's new transit smart card fare collection system and is managed by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG). It provides a convenient and secure way to pay your fare. The system uses a plastic smart card called a Connect Card with a computer chip inside that can store cash value, passes, and discount fares. 

What to know about using Connect Card on the Flyer:

  • Get a Connect Card by creating an account online, your card will then be mailed to you. You may also visit a Customer Service Center.
  • You do not have to use the Connect Card. This is simply an easier and more convenient option for riders to manage their Flyer fare.
  • Flyer tickets cannot be uploaded to the Connect Card. Use all your Flyer tickets before switching to the Connect Card.
  • Transit checks can be loaded onto the Connect Card at one of the participating Customer Service Centers. The NNTMA is currently NOT a Customer Service Center.
  • Another question? We've got an answer!

Super Susan

In the beginning, there was traffic congestion, but deep beneath the noxious gases heroes emerged. By riding the Flyer Shuttle, local heroes combat evil smog and protect our air. Commuting downtown on the Flyer saves money and punches out traffic.

We are proud to introduce one of those heroes!

Susan has been a loyal Flyer Shuttle hero for eight years. She has made this her daily work week routine because it saves money on gas and parking. She knows when she is riding the Flyer she can sit back, relax, and not have the stress of driving in commuter traffic each day. For Susan, it has been a win all around, but she especially, "...enjoys meeting her friends on the Flyer."

The Doc Is In

Bike Doc is back in action for its fall season. Bike Doc - a mobile bike shop on wheels - will be available to fix bikes for free at a variety of events throughout the next few months. Bring your bike (only one bike per person), and let a professional mechanic fix it up. Experts will be on hand to adjust, inflate, change, tune-up and grease. Bikes are received on a first come, first served basis, and bike repair will be limited to event times. All major repairs will be referred to a bike shop.

Replacement Vehicles To Be Used On 100+ Degree Days

Due to A/C malfunctions, Sacramento Regional Transit big buses and smaller “neighborhood shuttles” will be used, instead of our regular Flyer Shuttles, on any afternoon that temperatures are forecast to reach 100 degrees or higher. Replacement bus usage will be determined by 12 p.m. the day prior. 

BE ALERT and look for your route displayed on approaching buses while waiting at your stop. 

RT Dispatch can be reached at 916-556-0259.

The Air Up There

High temperatures can contribute to an unhealthy air quality, but that isn't the only factor that triggers a Spare the Air Day. Spare the Air Days are announced when the AQI for ground-level ozone pollution is forecast to reach 126 or above.

Sign up for Spare the Air Alerts and ride the Flyer Shuttle for free when a Spare the Air Day is announced. Spare the Air Days are determined by 1 p.m. the day prior.
