July 23rd FRIDAY FORUM: What Lies Ahead for the Tacoma Streetcar
Join us for a comprehensive update on rail transit in Tacoma this Friday!
In 2008 voters approved $80 million for Tacoma Link extension. Just how much rail can that buy? What's the difference between streetcars and light rail? What are the benefits of building more rail transit in Tacoma? Panelists Greg Walker from Sound Transit, Alisa O'Hanlon from the City of Tacoma and Bill LaBorde from Transportation Choices will be on hand to provide a comprehensive update on rail transit and answer your questions. Join us for a discussion on everything you need to know about the future of streetcars in Tacoma!
WHEN: Friday, July 23, 12:00pm – 1:30pm
WHERE: University of Washington Tacoma, Garretson Woodruff Pratt Building, Tacoma Room (Room 320) http://www.tacoma.washington.edu/campus_map/ (accessible by multiple bus routes and Tacoma Link)
Special thanks to the City of Tacoma and Downtown: On the Go! for sponsoring the Tacoma Streetcar Friday Forum. As always, feel free to bring your lunch. Coffee will be served.
