Message from LTD Board Member Kate Reid:

Serving on the Lane Transit District (LTD) Board is an honor and a privilege. As a new Board member, I have spoken with many people about the expectations they may have of LTD and their visions of the transit district’s role in the community, and I have received a number of different responses. Some are excited and tell me that I will be a great fit; some are concerned and say that LTD has a history of deception and that I should look out to not get wrapped up in the controversy. What I believe, however, is that as a resident of Southwest Eugene and a Main Street, Springfield, worker, I bring a unique perspective to the Board. As a regular bus rider, I utilize the areas that are in the most need of expanded transit and that also have caused the most contention among our community members. I also feel that as a young woman who is active in both business and public happenings, I bring a perspective that is important to uphold on the LTD Board. With the relatively recent change of general manager, I have seen a much needed shift in culture within LTD as a community partner and as a public agency. I am thrilled to be a part of this continued change and catalytic movement. Overall, I am ready to dive in with an open mind to help LTD and the greater community realize their transit needs and dreams.
