Candidates Share Their Stance On Local Transportation Issues
Don't vote yet! The Spokesman-Review interviewed local candidates on hot topics, and transportation was one of them. They posted a couple videos where some candidates share their stances on the North Spokane Corridor, "Electric Bus" and the Sullivan Bridge, among other transportation topics. Unfortunately, I can't get the video to play, so I can't just post the video. I suspect it's my computer though, so I am going to just give you the link and you can try it on your computer.
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. 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.
