Transit for Fun is back!

Join us for a ride from Downtown San Diego to University Heights. Circulate San Diego will be giving out free MTS day passes to the first 10 people who sign up for the event.

Transit for fun is a program of Circulate San Diego determined to show the benefits of public transportation by organizing special outings where participants use public transport to have fun. Our goal is to show people, especially those who may have pre-conceived ideas about what riding the bus is all about, that the bus really can be useful, cost-effective, timely, and, yes, fun!

When: June 21, 2023 at 5 pm
Where: #11 Bus stop -- 1st and C St. (near the Civic Center Trolley Stop)

Our Transit for Fun will end at Circulate's June Membership Mixer at Park & Rec, just in time for a free drink!

MTS Bus Driver Strike

Circulate staff stopped by the picket line today and met with workers from Teamsters Local 542. We recorded testimonials about how MTS paratransit drivers want to get back to work, to serve their disabled and elderly riders. View the Videos on our Instagram Page.

Transdev paratransit drivers and utility workers provide an indispensable service to folks with disabilities traveling around San Diego. Transdev’s inaction is impacting not only staff, but thousands of individuals in need of reliable transportation.

Circulate submitted a letter urging MTS to ensure that Transdev meets the demands of striking workers and gets buses running again.
