Public transit can be a lifeline for people, connecting them to work, school, and their community. But we can’t connect our communities with great transit if we don’t have the funding.

Washington ranks 17th in the nation in state transit funding – providing $14.07 in transit funding per capita compared to the national average of $42.11 per capita. And 100% of Washington’s gas tax only funds highway projects, not transit. What sources of funding can keep our transit system moving forward?

Join TCC for our quarterly Transit Talk and learn more about how our transportation system is currently funded, how we can create equitable revenue sources, and potential future funding opportunities.

Speakers include:

  • Senator Joe Nguyen - 34th District
  • Reema Griffith - Washington State Transportation Commission, Executive Director
  • Bryce Yadon - Bryce Yadon Consulting
  • John Resha - King County Metro, Assistant General Manager for Finance & Administration
