Lunch & Learn with sf.citi
We are proud to announce the success of our first ever Lunch & Learn series earlier this month. Representatives from various member companies had the opportunity to sit down with new District 11 Supervisor, Ahsha Safai, and have an informal discussion regarding issues that surround the tech community. We want to thank Google for hosting our first Lunch & Learn at their offices. Our next Lunch & Learn will be held in April with District 9 Supervisor, Hillary Ronen.

Commuter Shuttles Hearing
Over 8,500 passengers ride commuter shuttles on daily basis and the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency has found shuttles eliminates 2 million single passenger car trips annually. The program has improved dramatically since its test-pilot inception with ridership increasing 15 percent, use of MUNI stops decreasing from 72 to 57 percent, and the use of roads down from 26 to 9 percent. This coming Tuesday, February 21, the SFMTA will hold a hearing to determine the continuance of the commuter shuttle program. sf.citi will attend the hearing in support of the program. If you would like to participate please contact our Member Engagement Coordinator, Kiran Parmar at email@example.com.
