Transit Seeks Public Comment
on Transportation Improvement Projects

Olympia, WA - Intercity Transit invites public comment on potential federally funded transit projects proposed in its draft 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period will culminate with a public hearing Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. at Intercity Transit’s business office located at 526 Pattison Street SE in Olympia.

The draft TIP details Intercity Transit’s complete program of potentially federally funded projects for 2020-2023. It includes 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 the TIP, TRPC and PSRC will review them. Regional planning organizations must integrate projects specific to their respective areas into the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), which is subject to federal and state transportation agency review.

The draft TIP projects could total more than $97 million in combined federal and local funds for projects planned in 2020- 2023. The draft TIP and a complete list of programmed projects for potential funding are available online at 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 15th 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 14, 2019, to be considered. Questions or comments may also be emailed to or by phone to 360-705-5808.
