Do you like STA? Hate mass transit? Take this survey

The Spokane Transit Authority is passing around an online survey today looking for feedback on its Moving Forward campaign and a potential tax increase to expand its service.

In an email, the transit organizations had this to say:

Dear community member,

STA Moving Forward is Spokane Transit’s DRAFT 10-year implementation plan that proposes to sustain existing service levels and provide more and better transit for the growing region. As a part of the public outreach period from September through November, STA has provided an online survey to get feedback on the proposed package of transit projects as well as a potential funding mechanism in the form of a voter approved 0.3% increase in local sales tax rate (a 0.3% increase in local sales tax equals 15 cents on a $50 purchase; fuel and most food products are sales tax exempt).

Follow this link to take the survey, which only takes a few minutes.
