Today’s picks for civic nerds.  

 For Saturday:

March for Transit

Ever missed that last bus of the night? As we've reported, it could soon get a whole lot worse. Join councilmember Larry Phillips, the Magnolia Transit Riders, and the Transit Riders Union to support transit funding options and highlight the impact transit cuts will have on riders. The walk traces the route riders must take when they miss the last bus to Magnolia. 

Midnight March for Metro, Sat Apr 6, 11–midnight, meet at 1541 15th Ave W, West Queen Anne, free. 

Meet the Officials
