New: Link to “Sam Trans in Action” Video
Please chime in here if you have noticed any bus drivers infractions such as running stop signs or have other concerns such as noise from Sam Trans Operators along the 17, 17L or 294 Routes:
Your concerns can be directed to Lieutenant O’Brien 650-622-8045 Sam Trans Transit Authority and Mark Simon 650-508-6340 San Mateo Transit District Exec. Off. for Public Affairs.
You can post here too, and I’ll bring those concerns to the San Mateo County Transit District Board Meetings going forward.
I know there are concerns up and down the line, as I’ve spoken with many of you that have mirrored the same concerns.
This is the concerned I made on the Sam Trans Feedback page: http://www.samtrans.com/about/contact.html
this evening. I believe the community’s comments will help keep Montara and the Coastside a safer place and rid us these behemoths barreling down our pedestrian corridors.
Thank you for helping us create safe public access,
Main between 7th & 6th
Bus #: Was not able to read.
Complaint: While picking up mail at the post office (7th & Main) this evening, I saw the operator manipulating the bus’s equipment which created unnecessary / unpleasant noise N/b Main Street. Then, the operator failed to use right turn signal turning right / east onto 6th @ Main. This happens all the time; especially in the mornings when it’s dark outside.
Don’t you have any experienced drivers working for MV Transportation?
These drivers need to be coming here in stealth mode, when are these inconsiderate, dangerous and illegal actions going to be stop? These are not rhetorical questions. The community wants answers.
I’ve been reading about a very rare plant found at just a few places in the hills above Montara. According to the Wikipedia article, the populations have nearly been wiped out in the last few years because non-native invasive plants have overgrown their territory.
Interestingly, I haven’t seen any articles about this in the local press. It seems to me that the loss of this plant should be a major concern for the community.
Does anyone know of any conservation efforts to preserve and restore the habitat?
It might be possible to get some volunteers together to pull weeds if that would help. Maybe there are other ways to help.
My family is about to open a new business - a mobile food trailer - here on the coast and we’re trying to figure out what cellular service to get. Our food trailer will be moving all along the coast, as far north as Montara and as far south as Pescadero. Sprint has the cheapest wireless plan we can find but I don’t know how their coverage is on the Coastside. Does anyone here have personal experience with Sprint? Thank you.

“The Past, Present and Future of Climate Change”
Free public forum welcomes environmentalist
Zach Scheel, Dr. Peter Joseph of the Climate Reality Project
and space systems engineer Patrick Marinchek
in a panel discussion about climate change, clean-tech and renewable power with Lenny Mendonca, director at McKinsey & Company
and founder of the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
Antarctica may very well be the last virgin continent, yet the Antarctic Peninsula is one of the most rapidly warming regions on Earth. In December 2012, twenty-one Stanford MBA students accompanied Dean Garth Saloner and a select group of business leaders to “the ice” to study the past, present and future of climate change. The majestic, glacier-filled expanse provided the setting for an immersive journey that explored climate change from a 360-degree perspective and explained how we have arrived at our current, precarious global climate situation; what needs to be done moving forward; and how business leaders can work with governments and social sector organizations to tackle the challenges of transforming economies and energy systems around the world. One of these students, Zach Scheel, will be participating in a panel discussion with Dr. Peter Joseph, head of the Northern California chapter of the Climate Reality Project, Patrick Martinchek, a Stanford MBA student and space systems engineer and moderator Lenny Mendonca in a discussion about climate change and what the future holds at this special April 25 installment of Brews and Views at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.
