Transit Management Associations (TMA's)

Did you know that there are 5 TMA's in Sacramento. They are the South Natomas, North Natomas, McClellan, Corridor 50, and Power Inn Alliance TMA's. Each  TMA is tailored to fit their area's needs.


This month we will Spotlight The North Natomas TMA.

For those who live or work in North Natomas, the North Natomas TMA (NNTMA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster transportation behaviors that enhance placemaking through advocacy, programs, education, and services.

 

Formed in 1999, the organization focuses on services and programs that make it easier for residents and employees to leave the car at home. 


You can see these efforts in action throughout the area via children walking to school, employees sharing the ride on the Flyer Shuttles, bike connectivity improvements completed so people have  increased access to bikes.
The NNTMA’s Flyer Shuttle service is a successful and treasured amenity for North Natomas residents. Each weekday morning and afternoon, the Flyer runs peak-period scheduled routes between North Natomas and downtown Sacramento 

 These 36-passenger shuttles are easy to use, inexpensive, and neighborhood friendly. Riders can flag down the Flyer anywhere along its predetermined route – perhaps right outside their front door!

 The service is free on Spare the Air Days, a sign of the NNTMA’s commitment to improving the air quality of our community.


The NNTMA also focuses on programs beyond transit. It is proud to sponsor Walk and Bike to School programs at eight area elementary and middle schools. Each school has a specifically designed set of programs, events and activities that support the school community in providing a smart and healthy option for getting kids to school. In addition, the NNTMA promotes bicycle ridership and accessibility to seasoned cyclists, those new to riding, and everyone in between. 

These bike-centric programs and projects are not only increasing ridership, but shaping North Natomas into a bicycle friendly community.  


Another way the NNTMA serves its community is by advocating and highlighting solutions and issues that positively impact residents and businesses in the areas of transportation and sustainability. They support the construction of Green Line to the Airport, increased and improved transit amenities, and active and innovative transportation infrastructure.
