Lots going on locally in transportation this week: the Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program (in which SRTC participates of course) turns 20 and is still going strong, Spokane County wants to hear your ideas to improve safety on the traffic corridor that runs down Wall Street to Waikiki and Mill roads, and a popular free driving class will be offered again this weekend. Here's the roundup from the Spokesman-Review's 'Getting There' column.

It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.

SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
