Bergamot Advisory Committee Report
Report of the Bergamot Advisory Committee now available online:
Our report discusses the developer’s initial proposal to redevelop the Bergamot Arts Center as modified by our proposed changes and recommendations. A majority of the Committee voted in favor of building a new museum, community center, centrally-sited restaurant, more arts-related and gallery space, and limited office space. Following extensive discussions, we deadlocked over building a hotel. We also recommended a new parking facility be built first on the City Yards property directly across the street from the main entrance before any on-site construction could occur.

Bicycle Riding in Santa Monica: Pedestrian Safety
From SM Police Officer Marilyn Amiache:
Santa Monica is a bicycle friendly city and encourages people to use their bicycle as their mode of transportation. As a bicyclist, it is important to know the laws. Bicyclists must follow the vehicle code which are the same rules vehicles must follow. As a bicyclist, you should familiarize yourself with the laws that apply in Santa Monica, such as 3.12.540(a) of the Santa Monica Municipal Code, which states bicycles are not allowed to ride on the sidewalk. The City has created bicycles lanes in many areas, some of which are painted bright green while others are designated by sharrows (markings indicating shared lanes).
Also feel free to check out Breeze, the City’s new bike share program, www.santamonicabikeshare.com .

NextBus - Check Realtime Bus Arrival
To the Big Blue Bus Community,
Big Blue Bus has instituted the NextBus system for real-time bus arrival information to our customers. This is an exciting and highly anticipated change that will transform the Big Blue Bus user experience.
Check it out for yourself at www.bigbluebus.com/nextbus/
What is NextBus?
The highly advanced NextBus system makes predictions about when buses will arrive at a given stop. Predictions are made using a combination of Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking and computer modeling. The resulting information is used to provide customers with the estimated number of minutes until their bus arrives.
How can I get arrival predictions using NextBus?
You may have already seen electronic signs showing real-time arrival information. With NextBus, arrival information can be accessed on your computer, via text message, by phone, or on your smartphone. Later this summer, BBB will begin installing signs at bus stops with a four-digit number that can be entered into the NextBus phone or text message system to receive bus arrival predictions. More information about using the system is available on our NextBus page, www.bigbluebus.com/nextbus/
With real-time arrival information, you are in control. Here on the Westside, we know traffic congestion is a fact of life, and our buses are not immune to delays. However, instead of waiting and wondering at a bus stop, NextBus allows you to know when your bus will actually arrive. That might mean knowing you have a few extra minutes to grab a cup of coffee before the bus comes, or knowing exactly when to leave home in order to meet the bus.
