Consolidate all transit services into one regional transit authority.
There are at least NINE transit companies in our area! It is possible to ride local buses from Bellingham to Portland.
If all these companies were combined into one region wide transit authority, it would provide for smoother operation for both the transit authority and for riders, too!
As an example of something that works great, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) gets you around 13 cities with rail, bus, paratransit, HOV lanes and rideshare services.
