Statewide Public Transportation Plan

What is the Washington State Public Transportation Plan?

The draft Washington State Public Transportation Plan (pdf 7.26 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. The official public comment period for the plan closed on January 15, 2016, after weeks of community outreach. We are now considering the comments and questions we received and working with stakeholders to revise the draft plan and finalize it.

What is meant by "Public Transportation"?
For the purpose of the plan, we define public transportation as "any form of transportation that is accessible and available to the public that does not involve a single person in a motorized vehicle." Public in this sense refers to the access to the service, not to the ownership of the system providing the service.
