Join Crosscut at its 3rd Community Idea Lab where you’ll explore visions for regional transportation solutions here in the Northwest, the values and outcomes being considered in the process, and a specific exploration of the Sound Transit 3 proposed projects.


Speaker CIL Transpo


After hearing from these dynamic speakers, you’ll join a “lab team” to debate one of the most pressing and controversial transportation issues under consideration today, moderated by a transportation expert. You’ll move beyond the nuanced discussions to dig into frank, open dialogue about what you think, and how you would address this topic.

  • Michael Hubner, Principal Planner, Puget Sound Regional Council
  • Brian Lagerberg, Director of Public Transportation, WSDOT
  • Mike Rimoin, Business Development Manager, Commute Seattle
  • Jeanne Acutanza, Director of Public Agency Services, Transpo Group
