Dying to know what SamTrans is up to?
Go to Peninsula Moves, the transportation agency's new blog. Featured on June 7: the story of how second-graders at Belle Haven Community School worked for nearly the entire school year to save up $900, enough to buy tickets to a Giants game and pay for transportation via bus and Caltrain.
According to the blog, teacher Bronwyn Alexander's students donated prize money from a canned food drive, grew vegetables in the school garden and sold the produce, and also exchanged a pizza party they'd won for cash to go into the game fund.
Peninsula Moves, launched on May 30, will feature news about transportation issues and events as well as stories about the people using public transit, SamTrans staff said.
