Sustainability and Mobility

Mobility Board

The overarching goals of the City of San Diego's Mobility Board are to inform transportation decision making holistically to ensure that people driving, walking, bicycling, taking transit, parking or using other transportation modes will have safe, easy-to-use choices to move around the city; and that development of the transportation network helps to meet the City's Climate Action Plan goals.
