The Metropolitan Transit System will hold the second in a series of public forums Tuesday to discuss the San Diego region’s transportation challenges.

The meetings are intended to help MTS draft a possible ballot measure for 2020 that would implement a half-cent sales tax to fund specific transit improvements. Circulate San Diego, a transit advocacy group, has suggested the tax could raise about $10 billion over 40 years.

The forum is one of multiple ways residents can give feedback to improve public transit around the county. MTS officials expect to hold dozens more forums and community events in the coming weeks to gauge public support for the ballot measure and what improvements residents want to see.

The forum will be held at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center at 3777 Townsgate Drive. The meeting is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.

The next two forums are:

  • Linda Vista — Wednesday, June 12, at 6 p.m. at the Linda Vista Library, 2160 Ulric Street
  • El Cajon — Thursday, June 13, at 5:30 p.m. at the El Cajon Library, 201 E. Douglas Avenue
