Frequently Asked Questions
How do I ride?
Riders may flag the shuttle at any safe location along the route in North Natomas marked by a green line on the route maps. Time points are given on the schedule to help you predict when the shuttle will pass your street. Hail the shuttle when you see it approach, and wait in a location that allows the driver to safely pull over to the right to pick you up. To help keep the shuttle on time, group together if you see other riders nearby. There is no flagging along the routes in areas marked by a red line on the maps.
The Flyer has several shuttle stops downtown. Riders may not flag the shuttle downtown, but must meet the shuttle at a designated stop.
Can I bring food and drink on the Flyer?
Drinks are allowed in lidded containers. Riders may bring snacks as long as they do not leave crumbs, grease, or trash on the shuttle.
Are passengers allowed to stand while riding the shuttle?
Only if there are no available seats.
What happens if I ride the shuttle to work and I need to get home for an emergency or due to illness?
The North Natomas TMA offers an Emergency Ride Home for all Commuter Club commuters who use a commute alternative (Flyer, RT, bike, walk, carpool or vanpool). You must have been a Commuter Club member for at least five days prior to requesting the Emergency Ride Home.
Is the Flyer available for passengers with disabilities?
Our shuttle buses are ADA equipped and can accommodate up to two wheelchairs.
How can I see if the shuttle is running on schedule?
Sacramento Regional Transit's RT Tracker service can provide real-time information on bus locations and expected arrivals – including for the Flyer shuttle – on a desktop computer, mobile phone, or even by e-mail or text message. Start at http://bustime.sacrt.com/bustime/home.jsp on your computer or m.sacrt.com on your mobile device.
Is there a park and ride lot for the Commuter Service?
Yes. We utilize the Park and Ride offered by RT at the Natomas Marketplace, in front of Ross.
What if I have left something on the shuttle?
Although we cannot be responsible for any personal belongings, we will make an effort to return left items to their owners. As soon as possible, call us at 916-419-9955 to report the missing item.
How is the shuttle funded?
The Flyer is funded through rider fares, City of Sacramento developer impact fees, community facilities district fees, grants, and the North Natomas TMA.

Unfortunately, Flyer shuttle tickets are not valid for transfer to RT services.

At this time, monthly passes are not available for the Flyer shuttle.
