On March 9, Circulate sent a letter urging the MTS board to adopt the Executive Committee's fare policy recommendation to include free transfers for the bus and trolley. Circulate San Diego has advocated for free transfers since 2018. In recent years, MTS has been one of only two of the twenty largest transit agencies in the United States to not provide free or reduced-price transfers. Requiring extra costs for transfers creates friction, and discourages use of the transit network. This inequity also disproportionately impacts low-income riders, who can be stuck paying twice for a one-way trip. Read Circulate's letter here.
