WSDOT Wants Your Input on Public Transportation In Washington

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is looking for your input on the draft Washington State Public Transportation Plan.What is the Public Transportation Plan? It's a blueprint to help guide decisions and integrate all modes of public transportation to better meet the needs of all over the next twenty years.

And, for the first time, when this plan refers to "public transportation," it's not just talking about buses. In this instance, public transportation means walking, bicycling, carpooling, car-sharing, ferries, buses; anything that's not a single person in a vehicle driving alone.

After reviewing the plan, WSDOT asks that you take their survey on the Washington State Public Transportation Plan, public transportation in our state, and what you'd like to see improved in your area's transportation system. You can take that survey online here.
