Portland Marriott Hotel Adds In-Room Bike Parking
Portland's Marriott Downtown Waterfront hotel just got a facelift. And the theme of the new decor is something very close to Portlander's hearts- bikes. There’s a bicycle-inspired mural above each bed and the main attraction is in-room bike parking.
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.
