Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month?
In Balboa Park, many of the museums and institutions have developed safety plans for their patrons and guests should an emergency arise. This ongoing commitment to public safety is shared by San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).
MTS is asking San Diegans to take a survey this month about what they think could increase the use of transit to Balboa Park and other places that MTS serves. The survey is the first step in a study to determine what changes could be made in the MTS system to improve service and efficiency.
How to Participate
Make your next trip to the Park environmentally responsible and enjoyable by reading or listening to a good book while you take transit! The MTS eBook Club offers riders the ability to download free books on a smartphone or eReader by visiting www.ReadandRidesd.org.
Last month, the White House launched an array of initiatives to accelerate electric vehicle (EV) adoption in America. These efforts include unlocking up to $4.5 billion in loan guarantees for installing new charging infrastructure, promoting new battery and fast-charger technology to lead the industry forward, and encouraging local, state, and federal governments to purchase electric vehicles as part of their fleets.
A reminder for San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) customers: the transition to a new electric rate structure that began last September enters the next phase in July 2016. How these changes affect your electric bill will depend on your energy use, where you live, and whether you’re enrolled in a bill discount program like California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE).

Did you know that there are 11 LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings in Balboa Park?

SAN DIEGO —Balboa Park comes alive after 5:00 p.m. on Fridays all summer long with two new programs that promise to make the Park a popular date-night destination. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, 10 park museums will stay open until 8:00 p.m. or later as part of the new Balboa Park After Dark program. In addition, hungry museum goers can enjoy live music and gourmet food truck fare from a rotating selection of eight to 10 food trucks parked on the Plaza de Panama and Prado walkway from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Fridays, June 3 & 17, and from July 1 to September 2.
