Bike Swap Volunteers Needed
The 2nd Annual Spokane Bike Swap is less than two weeks away and organizers are in need of volunteers. The Bike Swap is Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14 this year. If you can help out, you get to pick the dates, times and areas you prefer to work in. Volunteers are particularly needed on Sunday though.
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.
