Calling all Samish Tribal Members
Your tribe needs your help!
Participate in the 2018 Samish Transportation Trial and help us improve transportation options for you and your fellow tribal members.
We know that there is a need for public transportation to Samish tribal facilities for tribal events and services because we hear about it from Tribal members and program staff. The Tribe has access to funding for public transportation, but we must document the need in order to qualify for grant funding.
How do I participate? Call Nora Pederson, Samish Planner, at (360)208-7590. Nora is connecting with tribal members over the phone to coordinate public transportation options to tribal events through 2018. We want to hear how transportation to Samish events works (or doesn’t work) for you and help you find transportation that you’re comfortable using by:
- Providing free bus passes
- Navigating existing bus service
- Coordinating carpools
- Providing rides when needed
The Samish Planning Department is running this trial all year, with a focus on coordinating transportation to Samish cultural events and activities. If the trial is successful, it could help Samish get a bus in 2019!
