SamTrans Bus Services

Printer-friendly version

SamTrans is continuing its extensive outreach campaign to gather input on a draft of a proposed new service plan with a round of community meetings that will be held at locations throughout the County in October. The proposed new plan aims to provide riders with more service where they need it, improves or eliminates services that are under-performing and recommends trying some new types of bus services. The plan is based on an 18-month study of SamTrans service that included two previous rounds of outreach.  Click here to view the flyer and the times and locations for these presentations. 

The public is invited to attend any of the meetings. Spanish translation services will also be provided at the meetings. If other translation services are needed, please contact SamTrans on the project message line at 650-508-6338 at least 72 hours in advance and leave a message. In addition, any group interested in receiving a presentation can contact ssp@samtrans.com to make arrangements.

In the decade since SamTrans did its last comprehensive analysis of its service, employment and population centers have shifted and riders needs have changed. The proposed changes are designed to attract new riders by giving riders more of what they want. 

The draft proposal, along with route maps showing proposed changes, can be reviewed at www.samtrans.com/ssp. Comments can be made in person at a public meeting, by phone (650-508-6338), by e-mail or sent by letter to Planning and Development, ATTN: SSP, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos, CA 94070.

After the community outreach process is completed, all of the comments will be considered and a final draft proposal will be submitted to the SamTrans Board of Directors for review in late 2012 or early 2013. Any service changes resulting from the SSP would be scheduled to take effect in mid-2013

For more information about SamTrans schedules and fares, call 1-800-660-4287 (TTY 650-508-6448), or visit www.samtrans.com.

 

Water Aerobics Class

Water Aerobics instructor, Patricia Rohn, was informed today that she needs to undergo an emergency medical procedure and therefore the Water Aerobics class has been cancelled indefinitely.  Her students were notified this morning.  As soon as we hear more information about the status of the class, her students and the Community will be informed.  Thank you for your kind understanding during this time.

Concerts in the Park

Printer-friendly version

We have had the pleasure of enjoying 5 consecutive weeks of Friday night Concerts, thanks to our 25 Sponsors* (made up of businesses AND families) who viewed the Annual Summer Concert Series with enough importance to want to support them.  If you want to be a Sponsor for next year's Concerts in the Park, it's never too early to let Caroline know.

Last Friday, The Hot Rods, who have performed previously at a past Brisbane Marina Festival, were back in town to perform mainly hits from the 50s and 60s.  They got people dancing right where they were.

Janie and Dan have, for the past 6 years, been attending every Concert, setting up their chairs and mini table in order to enjoy a hot meal and glass of wine as they take in the free Concert.


Happy Birthday again to Branden, who turned 11 on Friday and opted to celebrate with his friends and family at the Concert!


Jessica Aloft, C.J., and their family know how to plan for a picnic in the Park!


The band doing what they proved to be quite good at - getting people up and moving.


As the sun set, the crowd looked like it had only increased.


A fabulous performance and great night in the Park - thank you, Hot Rods!

Next up, we have the premiere Beatles tribute band, The Sun Kings!

 

And don't miss The Al Molina Sextet featuring Jeff Oster two days later on Sunday, Sept. 30th from 2:00pm - 4:00pm.  Their performance will conclude our 2012 Concert Series.

 

Remember, many restaurants in town are running specials, just for Concerts in the Park.  So be sure to stop by and pick up your dinner before heading to the Park this Friday!

New SamTrans Bus Shelter

Printer-friendly version

The construction on Bayshore near Geneva for an upcoming bus shelter has gotten steadily more visible in the last couple weeks.  On Monday of this week, a 16" deep rectangular hole was made in the ground to allow for 6" of aggregate and 10" of concrete to be poured for the bus apron, or bus pad.  This will be the location where the bus will pull in next to the curb to pick up passengers.  With a concrete pad, the pavement won't fail as soon as if it were just asphalt.

The contractor will be doing the paving early next week, and then striping will occur the week after.  The final step is setting the bus shelter, which SamTrans will come out to do shortly thereafter.  Stay tuned!

Concerts in the Park

Printer-friendly version

For the last two Fridays, the Community Park has been filled with those who want to enjoy a free concert, mingle with friends and neighbors, and dance the night away.  Let's keep that up for the final 2 Friday night concerts coming up this Friday, September 21st when The Hot Rods come to town, and Friday, September 28th when Beatles Tribute Band, The Sun Kings, graces the Gazebo stage!  All Friday night concerts take place between 5:45pm - 8:30pm in the Community Park (11 Old County Rd., Brisbane).  Brisbane resident Al Molina, along with Jazz Singer Jeff Oster will close out the 2012 Concerts in the Park Series on Sunday, September 30th from 2:00pm - 4:00pm, also in the Community Park.

Now enjoy the following photos, taken by Brisbane Parks and Recreation Commissioner Kevin Fryer.  Check out the October CITY NEWS publication for more of his photos taken at the 2012 Concerts in the Park.

Prior to The Cocktail Monkeys taking to the stage, the Brisbane AYSO Soccer Teams, in full uniform, introduced themselves to the Community.

The Houserockers ROCKED the Park last Friday, with well over 200 folks in attendance.

Remember, many restaurants in town are running specials, just for Concerts in the Park.  So be sure to stop by and pick up your dinner before heading to the Park this Friday!

Build Day

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: BUILD DAY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE...WE ARE SHOOTING FOR THE PLAYGROUND TO BE INSTALLED BY EARLY-NOVEMBER.  MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BUILD DAY WILL BE POSTED AS WE RECEIVE FURTHER DETAILS.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have offered to help build the City's newest playground on Saturday, September 29th, starting at 7am.  It's an early morning start, and that's because the objective is to have the entire playground constructed (sans the posts which will be installed by the playground manufacturer and Brisbane Lions Club the day before) by 4:00pm.  After that's done, the rubber surfacing will be poured and allowed to cure, so that by Day in the Park the following Saturday, this will be what's standing in those currently empty spaces:

In case you're wondering the reason for there needing to be volunteers to help construct the playground, it's because the City was awarded a $20,000 grant through national non-profit, KaBOOM!, which emphasizes community-builds in order for deserving places to get their dream playground.  So, we're going to make the most of it, distributing the swag that KaBOOM! has nicely shipped to us, along with having facepainting by Brisane resident Madison Davis (whose face painting is being generously sponsored by Ron Davis Real Estate & Co.) so that the kids whose parents are volunteering can have some fun, too.  If you are planning on coming to Build Day, but haven't let someone at City Hall know, please e-mail Caroline Cheung at ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us so that enough food for lunch can be planned for, as well!  Thank you!
