State Asks For Transportation Feedback

The Washington State Transportation Commission is asking for feedback on transportation in Washington.  This includes the roads, highways, bridges, public transit, rail, ferries, airports, sidewalks & bike lanes that connect the state to move people and goods.

The survey covers topics regarding transportation priorities, funding mechanisms, and long-term efforts.  With such a comprehensive subject, the survey is about 50 questions long and takes some time to finish.  Luckily, the WSTC has enabled a mechanism allowing you to save the survey and return to it later.  While you will have about two weeks to complete the survey, we would you encourage you to start it today and make sure your priorities for both the Tacoma-Pierce County area and the state are represented.
