TriMet Seeks Public Input for Stimulus Fund Spending

TriMet has posted a list of projects eligible for funding from the federal stimulous package. Only about $60 million overall can be spent, so TriMet is asking for public input as to which projects should have the highest priority. According to TriMet, the stimulous money cannot be used for operations (which is sad, because you could completely prevent any service cuts this year while using less than a quarter of the money). Capital projects proposed range from new bus purchases and MAX track heaters to maintenance equipment and pathway lighting.

Check out the whole list and share your personal priorities here, and (of course) with TriMet as well.
