March for Science: Science has become cool in that way your high school chemistry teacher had always hoped it would. If you’re looking to make a statement at the March for Science this weekend, Caltrain can get you there with a small carbon footprint. Held at Justin Herman Plaza at 11 a.m., it’s a healthy walk from the San Francisco Caltrain Station at 4th and King streets, and is quite close to the Embarcadero BART Station.
Redwood City 150th: Redwood City is celebrating its sesquicentennial with a free Magic Lantern 3-D Light Show at the San Mateo County History Museum. Held tonight at 8:30 p.m. and at the same time for the next three Tuesdays, the show will feature a time-traveling robot experiencing Redwood City’s history first-hand. The show promises fun for all ages, and is easily accessible from the Redwood City Caltrain Station.
Menlo Park Fine Arts: The Menlo Park Sidewalk Fine Arts Festival celebrates its 35th year from Friday, April 21, through Sunday, April 23. Featuring works from over 90 artists, the festival is a wonderful opportunity to see ceramics, paintings, glassware, jewelry, and much more. The festival will be held on Santa Cruz Avenue, a quick walk from the Menlo Park Caltrain Station.
Coastside Community Meetings: If you have a stake in the future of transit on the coastside, please join SamTrans tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. We’ll be discussing the Coastside Transit Study, which analyzed bus service up and down the San Mateo County coast, and will talk about district-wide planning measures. Another meeting will be held at the Pacifica Community Center on Thursday, April 27, at 6:30 p.m., but without the added benefit of good beer on tap.
Volunteer for Bike to Work Week: Bay Area Bike to Work Day is coming up on May 11, but volunteer trainings have already begun. Catch the next one tonight at 6 p.m. at the Redwood City Public Library, so you can help enable bikers throughout the Bay Area to swap two wheels for four and keep our air cleaner and our roads emptier. The library is quite close to the Redwood City Caltrain Station, and our bike cars are happy to have you.
