Sustainable Land Use and Transportation Blog Meetup

Are you interested in supporting transportation alternatives and transit-friendly land use? Would you like to help educate others and foster change by reporting on these issues for the Peninsula (between San Francisco and San Jose)?

Then come on over and share your untold stories about current developments in alternative transportation and sustainable land use on the San Francisco Peninsula!

There's a lot going on, and plenty of opportunity to make a difference. The example stories below came from local residents like you who are paying attention to important decisions that will improve conditions for walking, bicycling, and transit - or the opposite.

Come meet up on the outdoor patio of Angelica's, 863 Main St, Redwood City on Thursday, May 16 at 6 pm, have a refreshment of your choice, and chat about how we can analyze and report on the important transportation and land use decisions being made in our communities.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Example Stories

* Belmont is trying to decide whether to make Ralston safer for walking and bicycling

* Palo Alto is trying to decide whether to deal with a parking crunch by building more $30 million parking structures or encouraging transit, biking and walking

* Sunnyvale is planning to make the underused area near he Lawrence Caltrain station in to a place that is lively, friendly for biking and walking, and easy to get to the train

* East Palo Alto and Menlo Park may get a bridge over 101 with separated bike lanes and safe sidewalks

* Mountain View decides to limit car trips to North Bayshore (home of Google and other businesses)

Sponsored by Peninsula Transportation Alternatives, Friends of Caltrain, and Sierra Club Cool Cities.

    Hello, I am NOT able to attend physically but I would like to ask the group to include transit ferries on the bay in your transportation ovuview. There's an effort to bring a ferry terminal to Redwood City

      I have done some research on it and can forward the information that I have gathered. Partcularly, that ridership is way down around the Bay area.
