We invited candidates for Tacoma City Council to take transit and talk transportation with us. Access to transportation options directly influences access to opportunities like jobs, school, healthcare, and recreation. We asked candidates about barriers to mobility, exciting projects in Tacoma, and funding public transit. We believe that transportation must be at the core of conversations about Tacoma’s future because it cannot be separated from conversations about housing, access, and so much more. Thank you to the candidates for speaking, learning, and taking transit with us!
Captions are available for each video on our YouTube channel, and transcripts will be available soon.
Downtown On the Go is not endorsing any candidates. We aim to amplify the conversation around transportation in Tacoma by sharing the candidates’ responses. All candidates were invited to participate.
