The ultimate ride read
The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks is one of the most thought-provoking books I have read in a long time. I hope you’ll read it, too.

Last week, Sound Transit released its new 15-year plan. The ST board is expected to decide whether to put it on the November ballot by July 24th.
As you might have noticed, I’d much rather write about what’s happening on buses and (Lord willing!) trains than the nuts and bolts of transit planning. Fortunately, the folks at Seattle Transit Blog are doing an excellent job of covering this. They have all the detail, discussion, and analysis a transit geek (or concerned citizen) could ask for.
If you missed out on Sound Transit’s system expansion open houses this spring, you can still provide feedback on the agency’s proposal–which will be on the ballot this fall. (As if you didn’t have enough reasons to look forward to November.) All of the materials, including the questionnaire, are available on this page of Sound Transit’s site.
