Santa Rosa carpool information: There may be a threat of towing at St Francis shopping center at Calistoga Road. Instead, here's a carpool idea. From Santa Rosa go on Route 12, turn left on St Francis Drive (just past the St Francis shopping center), turn right on Raters Drive, and park near the intersection.
