Message from LTD Board Member Caitlin Vargas
Born and raised in Eugene, I am honored to be selected as a board member for Lane Transit District Board.
Working in non-profits the last 8 years, both in workforce development and at Lane County’s only emergency shelter for the homeless, I have extensive first-hand experience in the importance of public transportation for disadvantaged populations in Eugene and Springfield. My interest in serving on the board stems from the transformations I have personally witnessed in hundreds of people who are able to climb out of a poverty situation thanks to getting to their new job (or job interview) on the bus!
Using my experience, energy and eternal optimism, I plan to advocate for those whose voices often go unheard and stories untold. I look forward to being part of the collaborative conversation to move the needle for our city’s economic opportunities.
