Join the Transportation Team for an interactive workshop on Microtransit, a term for electric shuttles and vans that provide shared rides between locations within a zone or a community, including access to local trolley stations and express bus stops.

SanDiego350 presents this event in collaboration with our partners, Urban Collaborative Project, Environmental Health Coalition, SANDAG, San Diego Urban Sustainability Coalition, Via, and LA Metro Micro.

- Microtransit supplements our regional transit network by providing convenient connections to trolley stations and express bus service to residents in the service zone at a low fixed cost per ride.
- Microtransit lowers the monthly household transportation budget by serving those who do not own a private car, including students, low income households, and seniors. Reduces the need for a first or second private car.
- Microtransit reduces traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by replacing single occupancy trips with shared rides.
- Microtransit expands the footprint for affordable housing development by connecting the entire zone to regional trolley and express bus service. Reduces the need for parking at trolley stations.
