Public Comments Keep Coming In!

Thanks to some attention from local media, as well as our own outreach efforts, riders are giving their input about the three service alternatives for 2012.

So far, 481 comments have been received through our online form and 25 hard copy comment cards have come in. The public comment period runs through July 11.

This week about 70 people attended the two Community Open House meetings in MountlakeTerrace and at Edmonds Community College. We also spoke with hundreds more riders at park & rides.

I was out at the Monroe Park & Ride at O-dark-thirty Wednesday morning and spoke with about 200 riders who came through the facility. I was surprised that a clear majority knew about the planned cuts for 2012, though most had not checked out the details yet. For those who were unaware, we handed out brochures and encouraged them to go to our website or attend an open house meeting to learn more.

Next week we have another open house at the Monroe High School Performing Arts Center, and we'll be out at park & rides in Lynnwood, Marysville, Stanwood and at Everett Station.

Hope to see some of you there!
