NAPA — Napa Valley Transportation Authority’s (NVTA) Board of Directors will have its annual retreat at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 15 at Christian Brothers Retreat (4401 Redwood Road, Napa).

The theme of the retreat is “Wearing Your NVTA Hat.” Board members and NVTA planners will identify ways that the NVTA Board will work collaboratively on solutions to alleviate traffic congestion. The full agenda is available on NVTA’s website.

In preparation for the retreat, board members were asked to take transit to replace one of their normal, daily car trips. They were also asked to review NVTA’s SR-29 Gateway Corridor Improvement Plan.

Members of the public are invited to attend. A Vine Transit bus will depart the Soscol Gateway Transit Center (625 Burnell Street, Napa) at 9:15 a.m. to transport riders to the retreat. The bus will return to the transit center at approximately 2:30 p.m.
