March 11, 2013 · Updated 1:01 PM
A resolution to purchase electric-vehicle charging stations by piggybacking with Los Angeles County will be on the agenda when the Kitsap Transit Board of Commissioners meet March 19.
The meeting will be at 10:15 a.m. in the council chambers of the Norm Dicks Government Center, 345 Sixth St., Bremerton.
According to Gayle Thomson, special projects technician for Kitsap Transit, by buying in a cooperative manner with another county, Kitsap Transit can save money on the purchase of 10 charging stations. The cost is expected to be about $45,000 and payable with a Federal Transit Authority grant. The units are expected to be installed at rural park and ride lots.
Also on the agenda is a review and resolution adopting Kitsap Transit's Title VI program in accordance with the US Department of Transportation guidelines. Title VI addresses equity within transportation services.
