Okay, informal quiz time. Obviously everyone who reads this knows what/who SRTC is. But if you asked your friends, what do you think they’d answer?
Last week during our Board retreat, one of our Board members brought up the perception that few people understand who we are or what we do, and a lot of people have never even hear of our agency. And most probably aren’t familiar with Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) either. I’m inclined to believe it too, because that same day I was asked twice where I work and, both times, when I replied, ‘Spokane Regional Transportation Council,’ the person asking said, ‘Oh, STA.’
So what’s your take on this? Why do people think we’re STA? Or do most people have a vague awareness of SRTC, it’s just the uninformed ones I’ve been talking to?
