Advocacy

We have been active on political issues and infrastructure projects that affect cyclists.  This includes:

Port Townsend-Coupeville ferry design: The new ferries, built in fall 2010, were designed with bikes in mind, but missed the mark on a few points.  This is a post about some members’ “test ride” on the new ferries.  The PTBA is working to advise WSF on any corrections and future ferry planning.

Rumble Strips: in the fall of 2008, WSDOT added rumble strips to areas of highway 101 that did not have sufficient shoulder, according to WSDOT standards.  Many of the inappropriate rumble strips have been filled back in.
