“World Clean Up day is a global initiative combating litter and marine derbies. Each year, an estimated 8 million tons of litter ends up in the ocean worldwide. That’s the equivalent of setting five garbage bags full of trash on every foot of coastline around the world. Sept. 18, 2021 will be about limiting this impact globally,” Butler said.

City of San Diego
Mobility Board

The overarching goals of the City of San Diego’s Mobility Board are to inform transportation decision making holistically to ensure that people driving, walking, bicycling, taking transit, parking or using other transportation modes will have safe, easy-to-use choices to move around the city; and that development of the transportation network helps to meet the City’s Climate Action Plan goals.

Learn what is happening for bicycling throughout the City of San Diego. Bicycle funding, priorities, direction and challenges. Join us with thoughts and ideas; these meetings are open to the public and your attendance is welcomed and encouraged.

The City Council dissolved the Bicycle Advisory Committee(BAC) in 2018. A new Mobility Board has been approved to begin in 2019. Audio and written transcripts of past BAC meeting minutes are available here.

Do you have bike/walk ideas or suggestions for District 2 specifically?
Send them along and they can be raised in the local District 2 planning groups and community councils and other local community forums.

Goodbye Compass – Hello PRONTO!!

Starting September 1, MTS and NCTD riders can use the new regional fare system, PRONTO. PRONTO will replace the Compass Card and Cloud systems entirely, offering riders a better payment experience when choosing transit. We know riders have lots of questions about the transition from Compass to PRONTO. You can read more specific information HERE.

With PRONTO, you can ride free for the entire month of September. You must have a PRONTO card or the PRONTO mobile app account in order to get free rides during September.

To help make this as easy as possible, MTS will be doing lots of community outreach in the month of August to give out free PRONTO cards, and help riders get registered for a PRONTO account.

Be sure to prepare ahead of time to use the new PRONTO system for fare collection, as well as checking out the bus and trolley schedules. Hope to see you there!

Climate Ride 2022

May 13 – 15, 2022

I am super excited to participate in Climate Ride in May 2022 specifically raising funds for the awesome organization, BikeSD. This group is amazing and inspires me to keep riding and I couldn’t resist this one.   I am proud to support this organization as they support myself and so many others to be challenged to continue the fight for a healthy future.  It is a challenge to ask for money, but the money goes to great efforts, locally and nationally.  I appreciate all the other riders and all my donors for supporting these efforts, as they do make a difference.

You can make a secure online donation today by clicking on the ‘Support Me’ button in the link. You’ll automatically receive an acknowledgment and I will be notified by email of your support. More information here.
