Olympia, WA - Intercity Transit invites public comment on potential federally funded transit projects proposed in its draft 2019- 2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period will culminate with a public hearing Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at Intercity Transit’s business office, 526 Pattison Street SE in Olympia. Bus Routes 62A, 62B and 66 serve this location.

The draft TIP details Intercity Transit’s complete program of federally funded projects for 2019-2022. Including projects also programmed through the Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) and the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC).

Once the Intercity Transit Authority approves the projects outlined in its TIP, TRPC and PSRC will review them. Regional planning organizations must integrate projects specific to their respective areas into the State Transportation Improvement Program, which is subject to federal and state transportation agency review.

The proposed TIP projects could total more than $70.9 million in combined federal and local funds for projects planned in 2019 and 2022. The draft TIP and a complete list of programmed projects for potential funding are available online at intercitytransit.com/agency/plans-publications-fact-sheets/tip-projects or by contacting Intercity Transit’s business office at 360-705-5814. The business office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The public may comment at the May 16th public hearing or in writing to the Grants Program Administrator, Intercity Transit, P.O. Box 659, Olympia, WA, 98507-0659. Intercity Transit must receive written comments by 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 15, 2018, to be considered. Questions or comments may also be emailed to jgould@intercitytransit.com or by phone to 360-705-5808.
