SEATTLE - The Puget Sound Regional Council is encouraging people to comment on two projects new to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program.  The Kitsap Transit and King County Metro projects are recommended to receive a total of $1,949,427 in PSRC funds.

The public comment period will run from May 21, 2020 – June 11, 2020.

Kitsap Transit is recommended to receive $1,049,427 in PSRC funding for public transit bus service operations. The King County Metro project is recommended to receive $900,000 in funding for developing System Master Drawing Program documents, which will help the agency maintain its trolley bus network in a state of good repair.

The funding is available due to the annual adjustment of Federal Transit Administration funds, which are awarded to the region's transit agencies based on services provided to the region.  More information and background on that process may be found in PSRC’s Executive Board May meeting agenda packet at: https://www.psrc.org/board/executive-board.
