Circulate San Diego has made huge impacts to improve conditions for walking, biking, and transit. We led the way on Vision Zero, an initiative that is helping to stop the loss of life on San Diego streets. We are making it safer for thousands of kids to walk and bike to school. And we are leading the way to create better transportation choices for people throughout the region.

But we need your help. Please make a tax-deductible gift today to Circulate to support our work to keep our children safe, to advocate for better transportation choices, and to encourage thoughtful, sustainable development.
