Ribbon Cutting

The Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce celebrated the soft opening of Gaia’s Garden and Apothecary and it’s new location at 875 Main Street Ste. C, Morro.

With this expansion, they now offer organic, herbal, house tea blends that customers can enjoy in the shop, get to go or take home a prepackaged variety. They also create custom herbal blends based on whatever their customer needs, and they sell organic herbs for people to make their own wellness blends at home.

Keep an eye out because Gaia’s will soon hold workshops, classes and gatherings. Follow them on instagram at gaiasgardenmb or better yet stop in and say “hi.”

Increased Shuttle Services for Poly People

Cal Poly community members now have increased access to Mustang Shuttle with two additional hours of service, running past midnight.

Mustang Shuttle, a free convenience shuttle service that gives students and employees a ride across campus every evening, will run from 5:30 pm. to 12:30 a.m. through the end of winter quarter. 

With the switch to Daylight Saving Time the shuttle will run from 7 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. during spring quarter effective March 28.Cal Poly’s Transportation and Parking Services partnered with SLO Safe Ride to provide shuttle service seven days a week beginning last November.

Mustang Shuttle follows a scheduled route with seven stops throughout campus. To encourage riders to congregate and wait for the shuttle in a more populated area, two of the stop locations will be drop-off only. 

The shuttle service starts at 5:30 p.m., with the last pickup leaving the library at 12:10 a.m. before making all seven stops.

Riders must show a Cal Poly ID when boarding. Mustang Shuttle does not run during academic holidays or breaks. More information on the Mustang Shuttle route can be found at afd.calpoly.edu/parking/safetyprograms/.
