The purpose of the public hearing is to provide the Link Transit Board of Directors an opportunity to hear public comment on the Agency’s proposed six-year Transit Development Plan (TDP), the Annual Report for the 2020 year, and the proposed Program of Projects (POP) for the federal fiscal year 2022.  The TDP and the POP are annual planning documents that Link Transit must prepare and submit to Washington State so that Link Transit can continue to apply for both State and Federal grant funding opportunities.  A copy of the TDP document is available to view at www.linktransit.com or it can be requested to be received through regular U.S. mail by calling 509-664-7608.
