About the changes: It's a whole new VINE: The municipal bus system serving Napa County has new schedules, fares and stops — as well as a new website — and is now operating, along with its parent agency, out of a brand-new building on Burnell Street east of downtown.
"A lot of us were here at 5:30 this morning," said Kate Miller Monday. Miller is executive director of the Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency, which has moved out of its rented digs on Randolph Street and into offices above the new Soscol Gateway Transit Center on Burnell, which replaces the now-closed Pearl Street bus station.
Apart from some opening-day hiccups, like the fact the new NCTPA website was still displaying dummy text Monday afternoon, Miller said for the most part the switchover "went really well."
