Riders tell their stories on website and YouTube
Snohomish County, Wash. – She said, “If Community Transit doesn’t go there, then neither do I.”
It couldn’t have been scripted any better. She was an elegant senior who never learned to drive. She had used public transit for her entire life, expressing in her own words what Community Transit meant to her. She was sharing her story.
Storytelling is society’s way of communicating between people: the histories, the hopes, the personal details. While this story happened a few years ago and wasn’t officially recorded, it was passed from employee to employee and an idea was born: Community Transit impacts so many lives; those stories should be collected.
Now the agency has launched a project to gather and share stories that express the importance of public transportation to individuals, in their own words: unscripted, unrehearsed, unaltered.
Some of these stories already are available online at www.communitytransit.org/storytelling and on Community Transit’s YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/communitytransit. If you have a good transit story, or know someone who does, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your anecdote. Staff can arrange to meet you and videotape your story for the agency’s storytelling testimonial page.
Whether you ride the bus, met your spouse in a vanpool or have a story about how the transit system has impacted your life, share your story and enjoy those of others.
