Who we are

About Us

In 2015, a group of environmental and labor organizations started meeting to discuss specifically how we could influence state law (SB 1703) consolidated all of the roles and responsibilities of SANDAG with many of the transit functions of the Metropolitan Transit Development Board and the North San Diego County Transit Development Board. The consolidation allows SANDAG to assume transit planning, funding allocation, project development, and eventually construction in the San Diego region in addition to its ongoing transportation responsibilities and other regional roles. We circulated a request for input to a number of organizations and gathered the responses to inform our position on the measure. This became the Quality of Life Initiative Coalition.
