Executive Directors Report

Executive Director's Update 


NVTA Board and community members:


WTS Employer of the Year

Our Director of Capital Development & Planning, Danielle Schmitz, nominated NVTA for the Women’s Transportation Seminar’s employer of the year, and I am thrilled to share the news that NVTA won! The award ceremony will be held this Spring. The local San Francisco Bay Area WTS chapter will submit NVTA’s name for the International Employer of the Year award, which will be awarded at WTS International’s annual conference this May in Phoenix, Arizona.


New Vine Service 

The culmination of 2 years of work to reform the Vine’s fixed route system in the city of Napa was officially launched on Sunday, January 5, with the bulk of the system, starting on Monday, January 6. With such a large change, we anticipated that there would be some kinks in the system. One of these anticipated kinks included some errors in the printed schedules that have since been corrected. We’ve received some comments complimenting the new routes, a few suggestions for changes, and a few complaints - but no more than usual. Our fingers are crossed for smooth sailing ahead. We will continue to monitor and report on the system performance over the next few months to understand the impacts of the changes.


Our next Board of Directors meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 20, 2020.
