Let's Go! San Diego Press Conference 2023

Let's Go! SD Press Event

Our intern Farnelle spoke at Let's Go! San Diego's press conference about the many benefits of the Youth Opportunity Pass (YOP) program at the Old Town Transit Center on June 21, 2023. Great job, Farnelle!

Yes for traffic relief, transit, and jobs. Let's Go! San Diego is a coalition of transportation experts, environmental leaders, unions, businesses, and more, uniting to put a measure on the 2024 ballot that allows voters to choose a better future for San Diego County. Mid-City CAN is part of the coalition and we're excited that Let's Go! San Diego will help promote the benefits of the YOP program!

"I support the Let's Go! San Diego initiative," said Farnelle during the press conference. "Thousands of youth, including those in low-income households and transit dependent communities now have a dependable ride to and from school and afterschool jobs or internships, or extra curriculars. This initiative will help us keep our YOP program permanent for all youth."

A transportation measure on the ballot will have many benefits including infrastructure safety upgrades, rapid routes from job centers to communities, trolley line extensions, cut air pollution by 20 percent, a rail connection to the airport, and much more.
