A. Any ballot measure should fund advancing transit faster than the recently adopted 2015 Regional Plan.

Below is a Program Spotlight Blog from one of Circulate's newest staff members Paola Boylan, Program Coordinator. In the blog below, she spotlights just one of the terrific series of programs Circulate has been working on to improve sustainable mobility throughout the San Diego Region. 

The Otay Valley Regional Park (OVRP) is an ideal place for a morning run, afternoon stroll with your family or even a mountain biking or horseback riding adventure. Elementary student across Otay are discovering this wonderful landscape through the Safe Routes to Nature Program spearheaded by Circulate San Diego and Funded by the San Diego Foundation. 

Throughout the 2015-16 school year, students across Otay are beginning their mini-adventures from school to the OVRP trail head, learning safety tips about how to be a visible and aware pedestrian on the street, and courteous and safe on trails. Volunteer Canyoneers from the San Diego Natural History Museum join students at the trailhead and create a fun and exciting educational environment, bringing the classroom outside.
