With No Projects Ready, Metro Boise to Miss Transportation Funds
"Congress may offer as much as $16 million of stimulus money for public transportation projects in Idaho."
"But in a preliminary list of ready-to-go projects, not a single construction project is inside the Treasure Valley."
"What's ready to go here in the state's urban hub, with so many leaders and citizens clamoring for a greater emphasis on public transit?"
"One $2 million study."
"No Downtown Boise shuttle bus. No steps toward a light rail service. Not even any new bus shelters."
"Meanwhile, Sun Valley, Pocatello and Teton County each have multi-million-dollar ready-to-go lists of basic needs - buses, bus shelters and turnouts, pedestrian/cycling pathways."
