SamTrans Seeking Volunteers

Public members interested in providing input on local transit programs are encouraged to volunteer for the SamTrans Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).

The 15-member CAC meets monthly and is responsible for offering feedback on the needs of transit users and informing San Mateo County residents of transit programs on the Peninsula.  It also acts in an advisory capacity to the SamTrans’ Board of Directors.

The SamTrans CAC has the following openings:

  • Four community representatives
  • Two multimodal representatives
  • Three bus riders

Each CAC member receives a free yearly bus pass to use on the SamTrans system.  The CAC meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the San Mateo County Transit District headquarters at 1250 San Carlos Avenue in San Carlos.

Interested persons can download the CAC application here or call 650-508-6279 (TTY 650-508-6448).  Applications are due by March 4. For more information, visit www.samtrans.com/cac.

SamTrans vision is to be a mobility leader, providing transportation choices and sustainable future that meets the needs of our diverse communities.

 

Please Don't Use Rat Poison

Printer-friendly version

At the end of January, a resident found this Red-tailed Hawk and called the Peninsula Humane Society (PHS) to have it picked up.  When she called back to see about its condition, she was told it had to be euthanized due to organ failure.  What caused the organ failure is unclear, but the PHS asked that residents be reminded that poison baits have this effect on hawks and owls.  So, please, do not use rat/gopher poison outside for any reason.  The PHS has a handout on their website of all the foods, plants, and household items that are toxic if ingested by your pet.  Should you have an indoor pest problem such as rats or mice, check out this fact sheet Finding a Company that can Prevent Pest Problems, which can be found on the San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program's website.  They also have a fact sheet dedicated to Keeping Rats and Mice Away from your Home.

Skatepark Update

Printer-friendly version

Update - Tuesday, 2/9: Fence is up with signage of the new Skatepark, coming late Spring!

On Monday, 2/8, the existing skatepark area will be fenced and closed for construction (the basketball courts will still be open during construction of the new skatepark with minimal impacts to users).  Once the fence goes up, in-kind donation work, including grinding of the tree stumps, removal of the skate elements, and demolition and prep work for the new skatepark, will begin.  We anticipate actual construction of the new skatepark (see rendering below) starting in early March.  For any questions about this project, please contact Karen Kinser, Deputy Director of Public Works, at kkinser@ci.brisbane.ca.us or (415) 508-2130.
