I need to move into an apartment or room by this Friday (Nov 20). To avoid living in a tiny room in someone else's house I'm investigating 1-bedroom apartments, to share between two people, with the living room occupant paying a little less rent.

Is anyone looking for such a living situation, preferably in Mountain View or nearby? I'm trying to get an apartment renting for $2,000/month or less.

Or if you know any nice rooms available for $1,000/month or less please let me know. Somewhere reasonably close to Caltrain. Thanks :(

NO WONDER there's so much car traffic in San Mateo County!

The Transportation Authority (TA) funds only those Highway Program applications that expand rush hour traffic capacities (wider highways and bigger interchanges) and invents funding restrictions NOT APPROVED BY VOTERS to avoid investing these funds in pedestrian bridges, bike lanes and paths, and sidewalks.

On Oct 1 the TA Board unanimously rejected San Carlos's application for $3 million to build a pedestrian bridge at Holly Street over Highway 101 as part of the interchange reconstruction project, while approving $11 million to reconstruct the interchange's ramps to increase its rush hour traffic capacity - so the TA Board wants to give us MORE CAR TRAFFIC but still no safe way for people of all ages and abilities to cross Highway 101 walking or bicycling.

A total of $108 million was awarded to car traffic capacity expansion projects along Highways 101 and 92!

Expanding San Mateo County's highways while starving needed pedestrian and bicycle safety projects for funds is a TERRIBLE strategy for successfully reducing traffic congestion - and this is exactly what the Transportation Authority (TA) is doing with YOUR tax dollars!

On Nov 5 at 5 pm the TA Board will reconsider its decision to reject Highway Program funds for the Holly 101 Pedestrian Bridge. Save the date!

Please do something easy to help people in need. Sign this White House petition for USA to accept more refugees of the Syrian Civil War.

Over 4 million people have fled Syria due to war. USA has only committed to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees this year.
