SAN DIEGO–Next week, San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will host five public workshops around San Diego County to seek input on where and how to fill gaps in the public transit system – especially for seniors, low-income residents, and individuals with disabilities.
Input from the meetings will be used to update the region’s Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan. This five-year blueprint establishes a regional strategy to provide transportation to recognized transportation-disadvantaged groups.
“We are asking for the public’s help to identify transit needs from the passenger perspective,” SANDAG Executive Director Gary Gallegos said. “Our goal is to develop as complete a picture as possible of what the needs are out there, then work with community stakeholders to come up with solutions to fill the service gaps.”
Those who are unable to attend the meetings or would like to provide additional comments are encouraged to fill out an online comment card or call (619) 699-1934 to leave a message.
The meeting details are as follows:
October 14, from 1 – 2:30 p.m. San Marcos Senior Center, 111 Richmar Ave. San Marcos.
