Going to Olympia for transportation Advocacy Day!!
I intend to ride to the Amtrak station and take the train to Olympia to ride and rally at transportation advocacy day tomorrow.
I booked a hook on the train, and am riding to the capitol for general mucky-muck and a sit down with my state legislator. Going to wear the houndstooth blazer and focus on a two item agenda -
Support for the vulnerable user bill, and that cost/benefit analysis of transportation funding consider associated public health and environmental costs.
Going to reread Pucher's powerpoint presentation to New York stakeholders, to see if I can glean some good factoids to drop about the costs of motoring versus active transportation.
Oh, and the Thunderhead alliance report on investment in active transportation.
Hope to see some of you there!
