Breast Cancer License Plates Coming Soon
Whether you're a breast cancer survivor or just want to show support, and help raise money to fight the disease. Breast Cancer license plates will go on sale starting in January. Money raised from them will pay for breast cancer screenings and follow-up tests for women with limited or no insurance through the state Department of Health’s Breast, Cervical, and Colon Health Program.
If you're really wanting to show your support, you have a chance to bid on the first batch of breast cancer license plates before everyone else can get them through an auction today.
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.
