The Bottom Line

Transportation council to meet in Boise

The Public Transportation Advisory Council will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 11 at ITD Headquarters. The meeting will be in the west annex building conference room, 3293 Jordan St., Boise. The advisory council is composed of one member from each of Idaho’s six districts and advises ITD on issues and policies regarding public transportation in Idaho.

The meeting includes federal reauthorization funding for public transportation systems and discussion with ITD Director Dave Ekern about “Idaho’s Transportation Future: getting there together,” a draft 30-year vision for statewide transportation development. The meeting is open to the public.

Use crosswalks and walk with the light

The most direct route for ITD employees crossing State Street may be a straight line, but it's also the most dangerous. Boise City Police recently relayed a motorist's complaint about ITD employees who cross against the traffic control lights at the crosswalks and those who do not use crosswalks. Police ask ITD workers to comply with crossing signals so direct patrols and citations won't be necessary.
