Where To Put The Train? Down The Middle Perhaps?

Next week is the Central City Mobility Open House. It's a meeting featuring several local agencies that deal with transportation to provide a chance for the public to learn about, and comment on, projects in the downtown area. One of the projects being highlighted is Spokane Transit's Central City Transit Alternatives. That project studied high performance transit service options that will connect major activity centers within the central city area, such as streetcar, bus rapid transit, light rail, personal rapid transit, and others.

Here's to hoping STA puts together a video like this to help the everyday people like me who don't speak in jargon understand their plans. Plus it's just fun to watch animated Lego people.
