PSRC Seeking Public Comment on Intercity Transit and King County Metro Projects

CONTACT:  Sarah Gutschow, 206-587-4822 or sgutschow@psrc.org
 
SEATTLE - The Puget Sound Regional Council is encouraging people to comment on two projects new to the Regional Transportation Improvement Program.  The Intercity Transit and King County Metro projects are recommended to receive a total of $13,149,382 in PSRC funds.
 
The public comment period will run from July 3 - 25, 2019. PSRC's Executive Board is scheduled to approve these projects on July 25. 
 
Intercity Transit is recommended to receive $2,175,183 in PSRC funding to replace the agency's commuter bus vehicle fleet. Intercity Transit primarily serves Thurston county, but receives funding through PSRC because the agency provides commuter services to the Puget Sound region.
 
The King County Metro project is recommended to receive $10,974,199 in funding for the replacement of bus lifts at the agency's Atlantic Central Base facility.
 
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 as PSRC’s Transportation Policy Board July meeting agenda packet at: https://www.psrc.org/board/transportation-policy-board.
