Unveiling Circulate San Diego
It’s time to connect the dots! In January, Walk San Diego and Move San Diego merged to form one non-profit organization and we will launch our new name, Circulate San Diego, at a future transit station of the Mid Coast Light Rail. And you’re invited to help us celebrate at our launch event!!
The launch event will be Friday, March 28th, 2014 from 12:00- 1:30 pm. (program begins at 12:30 p.m.) adjacent to the site of the future Morena Blvd. Trolley Station (at the Jerome's Furniture parking lot), 1190 W Morena Blvd. The event will be free, open to the public, and a light lunch will be provided for the first 100 attendees.
Conveniently close to several public transit options, you can take the #105 Bus Route to the Morena Blvd. and Naples St. stop (five minutes to walk) or you can take the Green Line Trolley to the Morena Blvd./Linda Vista stop (ten minutes to walk). You can also support one of our sponsors and use Car2Go!
We hope you continue to support our joint organization, and we look forward to celebrating with you soon!
