This Week: Bay Area Bike Share Launch, Calming Scott Street
In case you haven’t heard, Bay Area Bike Share finally opens its docks this Thursday in downtown SF and four other cities down to San Jose. Also, don’t miss your chance to tell the SFMTA about the changes you’d like to see to calm car traffic on Scott Street on the Wiggle.
Here are the rest of this week’s calendar highlights:
- Tuesday: The SFMTA hosts a second community meeting on the Muni 5 Fulton-Limited pilot project, this time in the Western Addition. 6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday: Want to see cars tamed on Scott Street along the Wiggle? Weigh in at the SFMTA’s community meeting on “exploring traffic calming options” for Scott between Page and Fell Streets. 6:30 p.m.
- Thursday: Join the two-wheeled, celeste-colored wave as Bay Area Bike Share launches in downtown San Francisco and four other cities along the Peninsula. Be sure to grab an annual membership if you haven’t already. Officials will hold a press event at the 4th and King Caltrain Station at 10:30 a.m.
- Also Thursday: Panelists at a SPUR lunchtime forum take a look at the huge jump in costs for the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge from $250 million to $6.5 billion. “How did this happen — and how does it compare with the history of building the original bridge?” 12:30 p.m.
- Sunday: The Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema will include the premiere of “People Live Here,” a short documentary about the history of Cesar Chavez Street and the effects of the “historic ‘livable streets’ retrofit” which it’s undergoing. Films start at 7:45 p.m.
