New SmartRoutes Website Up & Running

T-minus six days until the SmartRoutes Community Rally at the Spokane Transit Plaza in downtown Spokane. The SmartRoutes initiative is an application and case statement for up to $50 million in grant money for much-needed non-motorized transportation projects in our area.

Fore more info, take a look at the new SmartRoutes website, then pass the word on to your friends. If we can show Congress that the whole community is behind this effort, we've got a better chance of getting the money needed for active transportation.
