A Coherent Transportation System

One of the points that emerged from Ferry Community Partnership (FCP) meetings and other ferry-related discussions that took place this past winter and spring is the need for a comprehensive statewide transportation system. Not every resident of WA rides a ferry, but every resident of the state uses at least one service provided by the state transportation system. It’s time to stop viewing some services as separate issues that are drains on the transportation system at large and to start figuring out ways to fund and sustain a system that benefits the entire state.

Over the next three months the governor will be chairing a group of 27 Washingtonians called the Connecting Washington Task Force who have been charged with identifying promising transportation projects and new funding sources for the state’s transportation system through 2022.

Feedback is being solicited through a form you can access and complete here. Please take the time to express your thoughts. To read more about this group, click here for an article from LandLinemag.com.
