Napa Valley Transportation Authority (NVTA) Introducing Two New Fixed Routes in the City of Napa & Expanding Hours on Select Existing Services
NAPA —In response to Napa County’s move into less restrictive COVID tiers coupled with increased usage and demand for Vine services, NVTA will implement two new fixed route services in the City of Napa, expanding service hours on select Community Shuttles, and returning to a weekday schedule on the Routes 10 and 11 beginning on May 9, 2021.
Two new City of Napa routes, Route N and Route S, will serve major destinations along Trancas St, Jefferson Street, Soscol Ave and Imola Ave. The new routes will operate at around 30 minute headways beginning at 7:30AM and ending at 5:30PM Monday through Saturday.
NVTA will continue to operate Vine on-demand service between any bus stops in the City of Napa from 7:30AM to 5:30PM Monday to Saturday in addition to the two new fixed routes. Routes N and S offer a convenient option for riders in the high demand areas which will alleviate pressure on the on-demand buses serving these areas and deploying them elsewhere in the City.
Due to increased demand, NVTA will extend the Yountville and Calistoga Shuttle hours on Fridays and Saturdays to 9:00PM. Additionally, NVTA is returning to a weekday schedule on Route 10 and Route 11. This will provide additional trip options for riders of these services.
NVTA continues to strongly encourage Vine riders to follow all of the latest recommended health and sanitation protocols so that Napa County’s public transit system can continue to provide vital transit service safely. Face coverings are required on Vine vehicles, at bus stops, and at all facilities. Seats are blocked off to promote physical distancing between passengers and Vine buses are thoroughly sterilized each day with high touch-points cleaned several times during the day.
