Week In Transit: BURRITOS, NUNS, CONSTRUCTION AND PUBLIC POLICY!

By Dan Lieberman, @LiebermanTweets

BOGO Chipotle for Bike to Work Day:  If, like me, you only exercise in order to assuage the guilt that comes from cramming high-calorie foods down your gullet, Chipotle has the deal for you. For Bike to Work Day this Thursday, May 11, if you bring proof you rode into any Bay Area Chipotle between 10:45 a.m. and 9 p.m., you can buy one entrée and get another. If this isn’t a regular trip for you, please don’t attempt to eat two burritos back-to-back. You probably aren’t actually that hungry, and that’s not physically possible.

Sister Act in Foster City:  Who’s in the mood for millennial-targeted nostalgia? You know who you are (We know about your perfect score on that Buzzfeed 90s cartoon quiz, don’t try to deny it). The Hillbarn Theatre has kicked off its run of Sister Act, making Foster City the premier destination for singing nun-based entertainment (as if there was another kind). Multiple buses can get you from the Hillsdale Caltrain Station to the theatre, including the 251, 256, and the San Mateo-Mariners’ Island Caltrain Shuttle. Hallelujah!

Construction at 101/Willow: Caltrans is breaking ground at the 101/Willow Road Interchange on Monday, May 8. This two-year project will provide an eight-lane overcrossing, complete with sidewalks and dedicated bike lanes, widen off- and on-ramps and reconstruct the sound-walls. As such, some lanes may be temporarily closed in the near future, so adjust your commute accordingly (those looking for advice on how to do so can look here and here).

MTC Policy Advisors: Do you have opinions about public transit? Are your friends and family tired of humoring you as you share them? Then consider becoming a MTC Policy Advisor. The MTC is looking for 27 members for its Policy Advisory Council to weigh in on the Bay Area’s environmental, economic and social needs and how they interact with transportation and housing policy. The deadline for applications is on June 12, so make your voice heard, and remember that democracy is run by those who show up.
