PSRC Seeking Public Comment on Transportation Projects in Skagit and Thurston counties

SEATTLE - The Puget Sound Regional Council is encouraging people to comment on three projects new to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program that are recommended to receive $959,435 in PSRC funds. The public comment period will run from January 2 - 22, 2015. PSRC's Executive Board is scheduled to approve these projects on January 22.

The three projects are:

  • Skagit Transit: Commuter Bus Operations project, providing service between Mount Vernon and downtown Everett; $269,997 PSRC FTA funds
  • Intercity Transit: Vanpool Van Operating project, providing service from Thurston County into the PSRC region; $282,500 PSRC FTA funds
  • Intercity Transit: Fixed Route Operating project, providing service into the PSRC region; $406,938 PSRC FTA fund

The recommended funding for these projects are the result of funding redistributions from existing projects, and are new to the Transportation Improvement Program.  Both of these transit agencies are outside of the PSRC region, but provide service into the region and therefore are eligible to receive PSRC's FTA funds.
