Important transportation/CRC forum in Vancouver on Saturday

Clark County’s Online News Network

Bridging the Gaps 2, a citizen forum on transportation issues, info and solutions

Attend a Free Citizen Education Forum on Urban Transportation and the CRC Light Rail Project

Bridging the Gaps 2 is an extraordinary event with a rare collection of experts from around the country. You will never have another opportunity like this to attend a one-stop presentation to understand our region’s transportation issues, hear what is happening behind the scenes at the Columbia River Crossing and learn about solutions.

Five national experts, Randal O’Toole, Tom Rubin, Karen Jaroch, Wendell Cox, and John Charles will enlighten Vancouver-Portland residents on transportation issues, planning and spending, and quality of life that could be at risk. In addition, Tiffany Couch, forensic accountant and financial investigator, will update her report that ignited the audience at the first Bridging the Gaps event in June.

Learn what other communities are doing to solve urban transportation problems and how these solutions can be applied in our region.

Come and hear about transportation solutions, their trade-offs, how to effectively address congestion, costs and funding, efficient use of public funds, bus service systems that actually work and how enforcement has been used to alleviate crime issues often associated with transit.
