Message From The Chair

I’m Georgette Gómez, Chair of the MTS Board of Directors. Growing up in Barrio Logan, I’ve used public transit my whole life. It’s a big part of who I am and I recognize that transit plays a significant role in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the San Diego region every day. I’m extremely proud to be the Chair of the MTS Board and I am dedicated to lead MTS and make it a stronger transit system that serves riders in a faster, more efficient, and more connected manner.
MTS is responsible for providing 300,000 passenger trips each weekday on its bus and Trolley systems. MTS also administers paratransit services called MTS Access, and oversees the region’s largest taxicab system.
For more than 130 years, public transportation has been serving San Diego communities and helping them thrive. MTS supports a great quality of life for many residents and we have many important issues to work through to sustain it and improve.
Public Transit is a part of the solution for many challenges facing our region. Our bus and Trolley network can mitigate road and freeway congestion; Transit-oriented developments near MTS services help deliver critical housing needs; and MTS is dedicated to addressing Climate Change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through its zero-emissions Trolley. We are also embarking on an electric bus pilot project to reduce the agency’s carbon footprint even further.
We are committed to increasing ridership by doing everything we can to enhance transit service and connect residents to the destinations where they live, work, shop, and play. This is an exciting time for MTS and I am honored to lead our organization.
