Join Circulate San Diego, the Downtown San Diego Partnership, and TransitCenter for a discussion on how the San Diego region can learn from the German transit planning and fare payment model.
The event will begin at 5:00 pm with an hour-long mixer featuring German-style beer from San Diego, and German-themed eats. The panel discussion will begin at 6:00 pm.
In Germany, Verkehrsverbund agencies create a seamless transportation experience for riders. In large regions with multiple transit operators, the Verkehrsverbund system unifies the fare policies and coordinates timetables, even providing integrated trip planning and other rider-facing material. Come learn from German experts how this efficient model works and which aspects might be applicable to our transit planning in the San Diego region. You can read about the German model at Mobility Lab.
This event is generously sponsored by Transit Center.
