What: San Diego needs faster buses. Bus riders are essential workers and members of our community who consistently say that their number one transit concern is a faster, more reliable service. Fast reliable service will better serve existing bus riders, and generate new riders. Circulate’s report, “Fast Bus,” gives details on how cities, MTS and SANDAG can work together to deliver better bus service.
