In 2012, NVTA redesigned the Vine system to specifically make public transit more responsive and accessible to Napa residents. The new system features more frequent service and more neighborhood routes designed to meet the needs of the average rider.  The Vine has 8 local routes (in the City of Napa), 2 regional routes, and 3  inter-county service routes. The cost per ride for seniors is 75 cents*. 

An unlimited use, 31-day pass is just $26.50*. CLICK HERE to buy passes.

For more information, call 707-251-2800 or go CLICK HERE for maps and schedules.

*Does not apply to Routes 21 and 29.

 

VINE—County and Regional Routes

The Vine buses travel throughout the county. The Vine’s Route 10 and 11provide county-wide bus service up and down Hwy 29 in Napa Valley. Also, the  regional Route 25 goes to downtown Sonoma. The route 21 connects Napa to Fairfield and the Suisun train depot. Regional Route 29 Express connects the valley to the Vallejo Ferry and El Cerrito Del Norte BART station in the east bay.

If you have not been on a bus in some time, the Vine’s Transit Ambassador Program provides a travel buddy to teach you how  to ride a bus. The Ambassador will ride around town with you until you feel comfortable travelling by yourself. The service is free of charge and you receive a free 30-day bus pass.

For more information, call 707-259-8635.

The Transit Ambassadors Program is county-wide.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are physically limited and cannot ride the regular bus, we provide VINE Go. VINE Go is a shared ride bus service that provides door-to-door transportation to  anywhere within ¾ of a mile of the VINE service area. VINE GO operates during the same days and hours of operation as the regular VINE bus service.

Vine Go will not provide service to people whose transportation needs can be met by other local public transit services.

Vine Go is available county-wide. 

The fare is $3.20 - $6.40 per ride (depending on distance travelled).

For evening trips or on a day when you may not feel well enough to take the bus, our Taxi Scrip program provides a lifeline  service within the City limits of Napa.

Under the program, Napa residents 65 and older may take a cab ride anywhere in the City of Napa and NVTA will pay up to half the cost of the cab ride. The average out of pocket cost for riders is $4 per ride.

You must be a resident in the City of Napa. Some program restrictions apply.

The Mileage Reimbursement Program was created to encourage volunteer based transportation for older adults and persons with disabilities who cannot drive and do not have access to public transit. You find a volunteer driver to transport you to medical or grocery trips and NVTA will reimburse the mileage. Your volunteer driver can be a friend, a family member, neighbor, etc. 

You must be a County of Napa resident, unable to drive, reside outside the bus  service area or travelling to/from a medical appointment or grocery trip that cannot be reached by other forms of public transportation.
