Celebrate National Transit Equity Day on February 4 at the Family Fair! This special day recognizes that public transit is a civil right and provides a lifeline for many in our community to get to work and school. Access to robust public transit benefits everyone and our environment.
Local organizations like Regeneracion, the Community Bike Collective, Ecology Action, SCC Friends of the Rail and Trail, and many other organizations will be there to agitate, educate, and organize. Royal Dutch Bicycles will have a small fleet of electric bikes people can test ride for free. My Mom’s Mole will be have their food truck on site with tasty food for sale.
At 1:45 pm, Felipe Hernandez, our new District 4 Supervisor, Vanessa Quiroz-Carter, Watsonville City Council member, and other members of our community will speak about their experiences and how together we can grow public transit that serves our entire community and make our streets safe for everyone.
Free train rides will be offered from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Ecology Action is hosting a Bike rodeo! Bring your kiddos bikes. There will be free bike equipment, tune-ups and repairs, organizations providing bike lights, bike equipment, environmental information, help for fixed income families to get signed up for a free bike, and much more. Learn about new trails in Watsonville and throughout the county. Join us in making our streets safe for everyone, our kids walking and biking to school, our elderly, our community members with disabilities, all of us!
