A good turnout.
A different STB Meetup.

As Martin noted yesterday, ST3 is getting a hearing in Olympia today.  This is an important moment for the future of light rail in the city.  If you don’t like the idea that a lone fish truck can bring the city to its knees, come to an STB meet-up this Wednesday and learn more about the latest plans for regional light rail expansion.

In the coming weeks legislators will determine whether the region gets to consider a mass transit measure in November 2016. As the politics swirl in Olympia and Sound Transit prepares to shape Sound Transit 3, Executive Director of Policy, Environmental and Project Development Ric Ilgenfritz will join our meet-up to talk about the lay of the land. What are the stakes behind Sound Transit’s request for expanded funding authority? How will the agency decide which projects make the cut? Why is $15B better than $11B? Ric and other Sound Transit staff will be on hand to answer your questions.

Where: Rock Bottom Brewery, 1333 5th Avenue (5th & Union)
When: Wednesday, April 1, 5pm – 8pm

  1. Sorry, there’s literally no transit I can take to get there. It’s a block from my office.
