SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Several San Diego organizations teamed up Friday to ask SANDAG to invest in alternative forms of transit.
The organizations want SANDAG to prioritize on bike paths, walking and public transportation options before investing in any further freeway expansions.
"People are demanding a different way to move around. It's not about how to move cars anymore, but about how to move people more efficiently, also more economically and also in a way that improves public health," Monique Lopez of the Environmental Health Coalition said.
SANDAG is currently considering two other transportation scenarios, but the board intends to discuss the community plan soon.
