The Green Cities Expo http://www.greencitiesexpo.org is in the Festival Pavlion (the furthest east of the buildings at Lower Fort Mason)
http://www.fortmason.org/­directions/­index.shtml includes mass transit
directions. There's loads of free parking, but it may be very full.

CalCars' booth is #809-909, near the food area; we are there thanks to Rainforest Action Network and Bluewater Network, both of whom are sharing our booth, and right next door to the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association.

Hours are 10-7 Fri and Sat, 10-5 Sun. The world's first PRIUS+ will be on view. However, it will be locked (with photos of the battery pack taped to it) except when I or Tech Lead Ron Gremban are there. I'll be at the booth Friday after 4, much of Sat and Sun, and Ron will be there Saturday afternoon and much of Sunday. Stop by for the inside story of what may come next....

If you're going to World Environment Day workshops or talks (some top events listed below), come by first and pick up copies of new handouts that you can distribute at events:

  • Simple one-pager, "One way or another, you're plugging it in" (both the graphic and photographic versions), developed through a very productive and satisfying series of proofs and comments form subscribers to CalCars-News.
  • PRIUS+ Fact Sheet version 1.7 (printed version includes photos of people involved with CalCars)
  • General CalCars flyer, including NYTimes and Business Week stories. .(all are downloadable from http://www.calcars.org)

Hope to see you, Felix
