Week In Transit: PALO ALTO PARADE, NED FLANDERS, MEETING ON THE COASTSIDE AND CLIPPER SURVEYS!

By Dan Lieberman, @LiebermanTweets

Palo Alto May Fete:  For over 90 years, the Palo Alto May Fete Parade has brought families and neighbors together. On Saturday, May 6, at 10 a.m., the parade kicks off and the Palo Alto Transit Center is right in the middle of the action. Head on out and enjoy the food, fun and festivities.

Okilly Dokilly @ Slims:  Do you like metal? Do you like overly-friendly, well-meaning neighbors? Do you like embracing that which is too bizarre to exist, and yet does? Then get to Slim’s this Friday, April 28, to see Okilly Dokilly in concert. The metal band is comprised of five members that all perform while dressed as the happiest man in Springfield Ned Flanders, who will proceed to rock your face off. Take Caltrain to 4th & King, and catch the MUNI 47 to 11th & Harrison and remember that everyone who counts loves Ned Flanders.

Coastside Community Meeting: If you have a stake in the future of transit on the coastside, please join SamTrans this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Pacifica Community Center at 540 Crespi Drive. 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. This will help to determine the future of transit projects and systems that serve the coastside community.

Clipper Card Survey: Clipper Cards make the mornings of thousands of commuters go a little bit smoother. That said, they’re due for an overhaul, and Clipper is seeking customer input on how they could provide a better service. Head over to www.futureofclipper.com and take the Clipper C2 survey to let the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) know how you use Clipper, and how it could be improved.
