Circulate at the Buena Park Food Truck Festival

Kicking off the first outreach event for the City of Buena Park’s Active Transportation Plan, Circulate worked alongside KOA, the City of Buena Park staff, community groups and representatives, to set up SCAG’s Kit of Parts and Circulate’s Traffic Calming Course. The plan goal is to create a vibrant walking and bicycling culture that addresses the needs of people that are dependent on walking, bicycling and/or accessing the transit everyday throughout the City.

This event took place in Ehlers Event Center, Buena Park on June 23rd and was well attended by the community. Community members were asked for their opinions on the project survey and the traffic calming measures on the remote-control car course.

Families expressed that they would like to see more safety at intersections to address speeding cars and pedestrian visibility. Overall, the Food Truck Festival drew positive feedback and we enjoyed speaking with everyone and the yummy food!

Oceanside Coastal Rail Trail Public Input Survey

The City of Oceanside is looking to extend the Coastal Rail Trail multi-use path, connecting a key gap between Downtown Oceanside and Carlsbad. Improving the multi-use trail connectivity in this area will make it so families, residents, and visitors can safely walk and bike to get to the beach, parks, schools, employment, grocery stores, transit centers, and more.

Circulate has been hosting pop-up events with the City of Oceanside to gather public input on the proposed walking and biking trail. On June 15th, the planning team participated in the Sunset Market, and on July 1st they headed over to the San Luis Rey River trailhead at Mance Buchanan Park to talk to folks about this project.

Join us at Buccaneer Beach between 10am and 2pm on August 19th to learn more about this initiative.

Please take the project survey here and let us know what you’d like to see planned for the Coastal Rail Trail expansion.

Transit for Fun Recap

This past Wednesday, June 21st, the Circulate team hosted a Transit for Fun event leading people towards our June 2023 Membership Mixer. The goal of the Transit for Fun event is to teach people how to use public transit and encourage them to consider more sustainable transportation options when traveling in San Diego.

The group hopped onto the 11-bus route located on the corner of C Street and First Avenue and traveled to Park & Rec in University Heights just in time for the Membership Mixer event.

Thank you to those that participated and stay tuned for any future Transit for Fun events!
