Seattle’s Department of Transportation has an alphabet soup of committees exploring various transportation problems.  The Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee III (CTAC III) is tasked with matching funding sources to all the various transportation projects in the various master plans, as well as basic road maintenance needs.

If you’re a Seattle resident, I encourage you to fill out the online survey about what transportation investments are important to you, and your willingness to pay taxes to support it.

There are also workshops starting yesterday evening (oops), and continuing tonight and Thursday. Showing up and having a conversation with decision makers is always more effective than submitting uninformed comments.

    1. If you go to the workshop, the facilitators at the break-out session will tell you two ground rule: 1) There are no right or wrong answers; 2) We are not going to talk about the viaduct.

  4. Enforce all rules and fares on coaches. Get back regular riders with rule enforcement.
