Will you donate now to keep us going in 2018? Whether you give $50, $500, or $5,000, your support means the world to us.

Circulate San Diego is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your end-of-year contribution will entitle you to a tax deduction.

This week KPBS published new data showing that San Diego area transit riders are now using the modernized fare payment systems we have been advocating for at Circulate San Diego.

We need more victories like stored value to improve transit and mobility in San Diego. We need the resources to mount sustained campaigns to educate the public and decision-makers to make change. With the help of our supporters, we have accomplished a lot if 2017, and we're looking forward to making more changes for transportation choices in 2018.

Can you help support our advocacy to create more victories like the Compass Card win?


Teen Seriously Injured Crossing Street in Carmel Valley

A 15-year-old suffered serious injuries after being struck by a car at the intersection of Del Mar Heights Road and Hartfield Avenue in Carmel Valley yesterday. On Wednesday, December 27 at approximately 5:30 PM, the driver, who was heading south on Hartfield Avenue, hit the girl while she crossed the street in the crosswalk but against the red light. She suffered several fractures but the injuries are non-life threatening.

“High speed roads are dangerous by design,” said Maya Rosas, Advocacy Manager for Circulate San Diego. “Drivers travelling at high speeds are less likely to see a pedestrian in the roadway and can cause more harm than would be caused by a collision at low speeds.”  

Last year was the third year in a row in the City of San Diego with an increase in pedestrian deaths. In June, the City of San Diego committed to making improvements to the 15 most dangerous intersections, but yesterday’s injury shows that more work is needed.


Inclusive Engagement in El Cajon

One of Circulate's great pleasures is partnering with cities working towards building safer streets for all modes of transportation. El Cajon is taking steps towards building a safer more connected street network for their residents and we had a blast working with them on developing pedestrian safety awareness for their diverse community through the Be Safe, El Cajon Campaign.
