The California Public Records Act requires that certain public records that pertain to MTS business be disclosed upon request to a member of the public. The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) responds to public records requests in accordance with the California Public Records Act (Cal. Gov. Code §6250, et seq.). Certain records may be exempt from disclosure. Each request will be evaluated individually.
Please be as specific as possible when requesting records (i.e.; report type; video footage – type, date, times, locations, descriptions, incident, etc.;).
For video footage requests, contact MTS as SOON AS POSSIBLE. The cameras will record over (the time frame is dependent upon the system and is typically 2 to 4 weeks) in the normal course of business if footage was not already marked and saved. If MTS staff has not already been made aware of an incident, please contact us right away. A summary of our Video Systems Procedures can be found here.
