As part of Supervisor Damon Connolly’s goal of taking ZERO single-occupancy-vehicle trips for a month, MCBC will Ride with Damon on the morning of Thursday, May 5 and invite our members to join us!
And don’t forget to use the hashtag – #RideWithDamon
We’ll meet at the Miller Creek School at 7:30 am and head south on the North-South Greenway picking up riders along the way. Our destination is the intersection where 4th Street merges onto the Miracle Mile to look at that complicated bike/ped crossroads. We’ll also stop at sites along the route to discuss other topics and program initiatives.
We’ll pick up riders along the route. Meet us at the Lincoln Hill Pathway at the top of Porto Suello Hill at 7:50 or at 4th and Heatherton at 8 am.
Here’s a note from Damon to inspire you to ride with us Thursday, May 5!
“Our Marin public transit system is both vital and underutilized.
The County invests significant resources in local transit, and many talented professionals dedicate themselves to making the system operate efficiently and reliably for users. We encourage and expect people to use these systems to take cars off the road, relieving traffic and working towards our climate goal of reduced greenhouse emissions.
As an elected representative charged with overseeing this system, first-hand knowledge is critical –but that knowledge can often be lacking. How are we expected to represent our constituents and their needs when making decisions about services if we don’t understand the service itself? What is working, and what is not? What elements are particularly valuable and merit further investment, and are there other aspects that can be improved? What problems need to be addressed?”
