Public Transportation - Puget Sound Transit Coordination Grants

WSDOT's Public Transportation Division distributes Puget Sound Transit Coordination Grants to projects that increase transit ridership and improve transit riders' travel experience through collaboration among agencies.

Following the passage of I-976, Gov. Inslee directed WSDOT to postpone projects not yet underway. This provides the Governor and the Legislature flexibility to determine how to adjust the funding gap in the 2019-21 transportation budget during the upcoming session. Learn more about the delay and related projects (pdf 256 kb).
