Politicians in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties are in the process of making crucial and consequential decisions that will transform the way people in the Puget Sound region get around.
But for some transit riders, those changes won’t become reality for at least another decade. And their patience is wearing thin.
In response to a request from the Traffic Lab team for questions about transportation, one reader asked: Is it possible to speed up the construction of light rail? And if so, how? Other readers asked about equity in access to transit, from both a regional and socioeconomic perspective.
Those were overwhelmingly the most popular questions among readers who voted on which they’d like us to answer. Here’s your chance to get your answers.
The Seattle Times’ Traffic Lab and WeWork’s Town Hall @ We series have teamed up for an event on Wednesday, July 10 at 5:30pm where Traffic Lab and a panel of experts will tackle those questions, explore the history of how we got here, and discuss how we can move forward.
Stick around after for some great food, drink, and even better discussion where you can meet your Traffic Lab team, other panelists, and further delve into our shared transportation future.
