Participants sought for Transit Values Exercise

Community Transit continues to be impacted by the recession. Due to low sales tax revenues, the agency has been forced to cut service and restructure itself for an uncertain future economy.

Our mission of providing quality public transportation service has not changed, but the way we go about it is evolving.

As the agency considers its future, we are looking to involve our customers in our visioning process. Community Transit will host two fun and informative workshops involving a Transit Values Exercise that will allow you to walk in the shoes of a transit planner and decision-maker.

In this exercise you will engage in an interactive round of transit design to experience the real-world trade-offs similar to those Community Transit must make when considering service changes.

The 2½-hour workshops will be held on Saturday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 12.

We are limited to 25 participants for each workshop.
If you are interested in attending please RSVP with your date preference no later than March 18  March 23  to Donna Clausen at donna.clausen@commtrans.org. If you can make either date, please let us know; that may improve your chances of being selected.

Sat., April 9, 9 - 11:30 a.m.OR
Tues., April 12, 6 - 8:30 p.m.
Both workshops will be held at Everett Station, accessible by Community Transit, Everett Transit and Sound Transit buses and Sounder trains.

  1. I would go if it were at the Lynnwood Transit Center during a weekday. The CT buses don't run at convenient times on the weekend or week nights.
