Boulevard Bus Way – Free Rides
Mayor Faulconer, Civic Leaders Celebrate Completion of THREE-MILE DEDICATED BUS LANE ALONG EL CAJON BOULEVARD IMPROVES TRANSIT SERVICE & REDUCES CONGESTION, SANDAG & LOCAL BUSINESSES OFFER FREE RIDES AND DISCOUNTS
San Diego – With the goals of improving regional transit and reducing pollution, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer, Metropolitan Transit System Chairman Nathan Fletcher and civic leaders will celebrate Wednesday the completion of the new Boulevard Bus Way – a three-mile stretch of dedicated bus-only lanes along El Cajon Boulevard that will speed up service and increase usage of a transit corridor that serves over 10,000 passengers daily.
This important commercial and transit corridor – between Park Boulevard and Fairmont Avenue – connects some of San Diego’s oldest urban neighborhoods. The project’s goals are to reduce traffic congestion, increase ridership and slash greenhouse gas emissions.
The project was featured on the Mass Transit website.
To celebrate the completion, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and MTS are offering free rides on the Rapid 215 from January 8 to January 17. Local businesses along El Cajon Boulevard are also offering a 10 percent discount when you show your Compass Card or Compass Cloud App.
