All transportation partners in Washington work together to provide a system of diverse, integrated public transportation options. People throughout the state use these options to make transportation choices that enable families, communities, the economy and their environment to thrive.
The Washington State Public Transportation Plan (pdf 5.2 mb) is a blueprint to help guide decisions and integrate all modes of public transportation to better meet our needs over the next 20 years.
A Vision for Public Transportation
Washington's seven million residents and half million businesses are changing the ways they communicate, connect, travel, transact, and use public transportation. With a projected population growth of more than 25 percent during the next 20 years, the way we plan and manage transportation must also change. This plan offers a blueprint to better integrate all modes of transportation to meet the needs of Washington's people.
Washington's transportation future, which includes buses, bikes, pedestrians, vanpools, telework, ferries, rail and more, will be defined by new kinds of partnership between communities, government agencies and service providers. This plan, developed by WSDOT along with transportation agencies and service providers throughout Washington, takes a step forward in defining these new partnerships.
These partnerships will continue through December 2017 with near-term actions leading the implementation of the plan. WSDOT and its partners are collaborating on these actions to make measurable progress on the plan and will produce the first progress report in December 2017.
