Disability Mobility Initiative

Make Your Voice Heard!

Disability Rights Washington has recently launched a Disability Mobility Initiative which aims to share the stories of people who rely on transit and paratransit throughout Washington State to let their voice be heard by elected leaders and policy makers. This initiative is working to create a statewide “storymap” that shows what it’s like for commuters across the state to reach essential services without a car.
Disability Rights Washington is looking for input from residents of the Tri-Cities. If you have a story you would like to share, or know someone who does, please follow the links below to sign up and learn more about the project.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact BFCG staff at (509) 943-9185 or ebraich@bfcog.us.

2020 Tri-Cities Bike Map

We Want To Hear From You!

BFCG is in the process of updating the Tri-Cities Urbanized Area Bike Map for 2020.

The map comes as a double-sided pamphlet complete with bike routes and locations of public facilities (such as restrooms, drinking fountains, bicycle repair shops, etc.) on one side, and a back side that includes popular local rides plus an additional map that shows the Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) for specific roads in the Tri-Cities.

There’s a lot of information packed into this map, so BFCG would like to hear from you! Please review the 2020 Tri-Cities Bike Map and send in any comments by January 18, 2020.

The 2020 Tri-Cities Bike Map can be found by following the link below:

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tanner Martin at (509) 947-8504 or tmartin@bfcog.us.

Thank you and have a safe holiday season!

BFCG Metropolitan Transportation Plan Survey
