As part of King County Metro’s Squire Park In Motion program, Carla Saulter (AKA Bus Chick) will give a free workshop August 6 at the Central Area Motivation Program building near 18th and Columbia. On her blog, Saulter writes about her adventures as a transit-taking parent, and her workshop promises lots of advice for the transit-curious and transit-inept.
This Saturday Bus Chick teams up with Metro Transit to provide a free workshop on how to make riding the bus a great travel option for families. This is part of Metro’s In Motion program for the Squire Park neighborhood, but the workshop is open to anyone.
Parents and kids can learn about how to know where the bus is going, when it will arrive, how to keep kids entertained, what to carry with you and other helpful things to know when riding the bus.
And yes, wise guys, the event is kid-friendly. In fact, there will healthy snacks, free family transit guides for all and door prizes (zoo passes) for the first 10 families to arrive. And yes, of course you can get there by bus.
When: Saturday, August 6, 10 – 11:30 AM
Where: Central Area Motivation Program, 722 18th Ave (served by routes 2, 3, or 4)
