Fawnskin Notices of Interest

MARTA Mutterings

Not too long ago I mentioned that there was to be a MARTA schedule change meeting for public input.

That meeting will take place on Monday, October 18, 2010 at 1:00pm at the City of Big Bear Lake in the Training Room (39707 Big Bear Blvd).

Two drivers were laid off this last week and the rumor is that MARTA is considering terminating Sunday services and making other holiday schedule changes.

If this happens, many of the people dependent on the service to get to work (and those who work at the ski resorts in particular) will be effected.

Day passes (unlimited rides for one pass fee) are no longer available. They were supposed to be reinstated after the most recent pricing increase but that hasn’t happened yet.

Currently, the only service to Fawnskin is from the Off the Mountain Service which means there is limited access to Big Bear Lake and no service on Sundays.

For more information call (909) 878-5200.

Big Bear Library

The library will host an Open House on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in celebration of Teen Read Week.

Teens ages from 12-17 are invited to enjoy performances by Ngaio Nobumoto and Matthew Cole.

For more information contact Mrs. Kastle (909) 866-5571.

Free Dump Day
Big Bear Disposal and the City of Big Bear Lake will be participating in the County of San Bernardino “Free Dump Day” on Saturday, October 23 from 8:00am – 3:00pm at the Clean Bear Site 1 at 41970 Garstin Drive.

In addition to regular household trash, yard waste and tree trimmings, appliances, furniture, tires (off the rim), electronic waste (E-waste), and televisions, the following items will also be accepted:

  • Space heaters
  • CPUs (computers)
  • Greeting cards (containing batteries)
  • Printers
  • Batteries (AA, AAA, C, D & 9v)

So, they sent the Fawnskin Flyer a release and then said it is for Big Bear Lake residents only.

Go figure.

    Sad to hear such news about MARTA. Usually one would expect public transport is profitable at a huge getaway destination such as the San Bernardino Mountains are. However, perhaps an entrepreneur from one of the affected places will setup a privat transport business? I’ve rode microbusses operating like shared taxies in other countries. Very convenient – especially if they tailor their routes according to the current demand of their customers. And there are things like those Hiker’s Busses – e.g. at Yosemite Park. Would be a solution of the transport problem at least for the people servicing in the mountain resorts.

    Great idea Tina, I would hope that someone would get the idea and cater to those in need–and create a route for tourists so they can get around without a lot of hassle.

    When I lived abroad, and even traveling in Northern California or New York, transportation was a breeze. Even in small towns it shouldn’t be such an issue.
