Community Transit hosted five public meetings on our service change proposal this month. Attendance grew to 101 at the final meeting last night, with about 340 people overall. Community Transit CEO Joyce Eleanor facilitated each meeting and answered questions. We’ve compiled a running list of answers in our Proposed Service Change FAQs (and we are continuing to update this list).
Service Planning staff were also at each meeting, and they are compiling the more than 500 written comments we’ve received so far, as well as a petition and video comments. All those comments will be made available to the board before the public hearing next week.
The public comment period remains open through Feb. 8. Send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org (blog posts are good disucssion, but not part of the official record).
After the hearing on Feb. 4, the board of directors may direct staff to make changes to the proposal. Then the board is expected to vote on a final service plan at their March 4 meeting. Approved service changes would take effect June 13.
