Community Transportation Program


The purpose of the Community Transportation Program is to promote environmentally friendly transportation options. The PCEI transportation committee has the goal of decreased reliance on automobile use for our region. We recognize a number of benefits result from enhancing transportation options--cleaner air, friendlier communities, better health, and sound economics.

 Transportation on the Palouse can benefit from strengthening existing transit systems. In 1991 and 1992, PCEI volunteers worked with local transit entities and the two universities to establish shuttle links between Moscow, Pullman and outlying communities. In August of 1992, Wheatland Express of Pullman launched the first regular bus system between Pullman and Moscow. PCEI has been working since then to promote this service. We have also worked to establish VanPool links within our region.

Our projects include:

Idaho Smart Growth

VanPool Network
