WTA seeks input on new routes

The Whatcom Transit Authority (WTA) is looking for input from riders on how to better serve the community.

WTA is working on its strategic plan, which will help determine the company’s plan of action for the next six years, and wants input via a survey on its website.

Some of the questions the survey will address include whether or not to increase services in more congested urban areas such as Bellingham, adding more routes to rural areas, ways to better accommodate both the elderly and younger people who choose not to own cars, and how best to reduce the impact on the environment.

In addition to the survey, WTA will be hosting public meetings around the county to discuss any needed or necessary changes. The first meeting will take place at the Bellingham Public Library on July 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

WTA hopes to implement any changes later this year.
