Fresh Start for SANDAG

Hasan Ikhrata, SANDAG's new Executive Director talked about the importance of making transit competitive with driving to be viable, in a recent interview with the Union-Tribune. As transit advocates, we're encouraged by Mr. Ikhrata's words and excited by the prospect of his tenure at the region's transportation planning agency. His remarks were validated by our peers in Los Angeles, where he previously served as the head of the Southern California Association of Governments. 

In the same article, Mr. Ikhrata expressed support for an improved transit connection to the airport, something Circulate has aggressively been pushing for the last few months. “This is about having a system that people can access the airport, a real alternative,” he told the UT.  We look forward to working with Mr. Ikhrata and SANDAG staff to advance transit in the region.

Farewell to Cynthia Offenhauer

Circulate San Diego's longest employee, Cynthia Offenhauer, is leaving after ten years as our Administrator. Cynthia began working at Circulate's predecessor organization, WalkSanDiego, in 2008. In her tenure, she has overseen and provided guidance on the merger between WalkSanDiego and Move San Diego, an office relocation, an Executive Director transition, and continued growth as an organization. Her day to day administrative role supported our important programs and policy work, which was supplemented by her spoiling of staff with baked treats.

Cynthia lives with her husband in Kensington, maintains one of the most beautiful native plant gardens in San Diego, and is a regular transit rider and cyclist. She moves on from Circulate to start a new venture that addresses the housing crisis. Keep an eye out for her as she continues her advocacy for a better world!

This means we have a job opening. For more information check out the listing, here

Circulate San Diego wishes all of our friends and partners a happy holidays.

2018 Has Been Quite A Year

For a lot of nonprofits, showing impact can be a challenge. Fortunately, in 2018 Circulate San Diego will have no trouble showing what we have accomplished.

In 2018 we were able to accomplish:

Few organizations can show this kind of impact in the San Diego region. If you want to see our organization continue to make an impact in the region, please make an end-of-year gift.

With your help, we can continue to press for a more vibrant and equitable region.
