Because bikesÂ have the same legal right to be on the roadway as other traffic, it’s important for those who design, build, and maintain the roads to know when something isn’t working. Â Whether that something is a bunch of gravel or broken glass, overgrown vegetation, or a pothole that threatenedÂ to end your ride a bit too soon, we want to know about it!

One of the visions for the bicycle network in Napa County is that it encourages multi-modal car-free transportation.Â That’s transit jargon for being able to get to work or other destinations by bike, bus, ferry, and so on. Currently, all large buses will accommodateÂ 3 bikes on a rack on the front of the bus; the smaller vans have racks for 2 bikes. If the rack is full, you’re out of luck until the next bus. The good news is that the frequency of buses on many routes has been increased and you may not have to wait too long. Here’s a link to the bus schedules on the Napa County Transit and Planning Agency website. If you have a smart phone, use the Where’s My Bus? feature on the NCTPA website to find out how long you have to wait.
We are pleased with the improvements in bike-carrying capacity and are working with NCTPA to expand the capacity for bikes on buses throughout the county. We look forward to a time when bikes are permitted in buses (when space permits) just as they are in other cities in the US and Europe.
Once you get to the Vallejo Ferry, there is ample room for your bike on the back deck.Â Lot’s of people use the ferry to get to San Francisco to add an exciting urban riding dimension to their Napa Valley visit. Here’s a link to the ferry schedule.
