Engage Encinitas forum discusses alternative transportation


The nonprofit Engage Encinitas hosted an educational forum last week at the Encinitas Library dedicated to alternative transportation.

The event, called “Transportation: It’s Not Just About Cars,” featured a panel made up of transportation experts and representatives from commuter groups. They fielded questions and talked about ways they’re trying to make it easier to bike and walk around Encinitas and beyond.

Topics ran the gamut, from planned biking and walking infrastructure in Encinitas to rules of the road for bikers.

Engage Encinitas, headed by former Mayor Teresa Barth, hosts free forums on relevant community topics on the third Thursday of each month. The organization also looks to encourage civic engagement with volunteer opportunities and other events. To learn more, visit
