Transportation Committee

The Transportation Team advocates for a fully connected, electrified regional transit system and pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure that are safe, convenient, affordable, and support GHG emission reduction goals.

What We’re Working On
  • Advocating for a Regional Transportation Plan that dramatically reduces GHG emissions
  • Advocating for Youth Opportunity Passes, better amenities at stations, more frequent stops, and COVID-19 protection for drivers and riders as part of the Transportation Equity Working Group 
  • Educating the public and building coalitions in preparation for a transit ballot initiative
How to get involved – what volunteers do 
  • Attend SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments) and MTS (Metropolitan Transit System) meetings and provide written or oral comments 
  • Represent SanDiego350 at various coalition meetings
  • Meet with elected officials to advocate for policies
  • Educate SD350 members about policies and engage in transportation justice advocacy
  • Analyze, describe, and track relevant local, regional, and state policies
  • Help build an active transportation (bicycling and pedestrian) working group
Team Accomplishments 

Helped pass AB 805 (which restructured SANDAG to better represent vulnerable communities), successfully advocated with MTS for a bus electrification pilot project, and educated residents and partners about the 5 Big Moves & other transit campaigns.

Fun Fact 

Our Executive Director once got thrown out of a SANDAG meeting when they refused to develop a regional transportation plan that met state climate targets.
