What: Circulate San Diego will release a new report, “Transit Together,” which finds that an MTS ballot measure could fund long planned transit projects and dedicate billions of dollars to new priorities. Bold projects that an MTS ballot measure could fund include transit connections to the airport, the Purple Line connecting the border to jobs centers in Kearny Mesa, bus fleet electrification and accessibility improvements, safe routes to school, transit, and for seniors, and student transit passes.
