SANDAG - Great news! Youth 18 and under in the San Diego region can keep riding transit for free through June 2024, with unlimited rides on all the buses, trollies, and trains in the region. It’s been amazing to hear how kids and teens are using this program to get to school on time, home from activities, get to doctor’s appointments, see friends and family, and more! Do you know a young person that still needs a free youth transit pass? Visit SANDAG.org/YouthOpportunityPass to learn how they can sign up.

Save the Date: FOPBSS would love for you to join them at their spring fundraiser on Saturday, March 18 from 6-10 at the Mission Bay Yacht Club. You can purchase tickets from the FOPBSS website: fopbss.org/shenanigans or scan the QR code in this LINK. We hope to see you there!
