Coalition Letter: 30th Street Bike Lanes

Circulate San Diego joined a coalition letter to San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria reaffirming its support for protected bike lanes on 30th Street. While the use of streets for outdoor dining during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a necessary adjustment, that use should not delay bicycle infrastructure. Investing in protected bike lines on 30th Street will create a critical north-south spine in the broader North Park and Mid-City network. Read the coalition letter here.


Coalition Letter: Federal Public Transit Assistance

Circulate San Diego signed on to a letter thanking President Biden and congressional leaders for their commitment to provide $30 billion in new operational funding to transit agencies nationwide, and urging them to ensure that California receives its fair share of the funding. The letter is from a coalition of transportation, labor, business, infrastructure, environmental and social justice leaders from California.  Read the letter here [PDF].
