    WSDOT developed its COVID-19 Multimodal Transportation System Performance Dashboard to keep Washington citizens informed about the impacts pandemic-related closures are having on multimodal transportation statewide. This detailed analysis provides daily updates on where these changes are most pronounced and provides an accurate look at exactly how, when and where certain measures (e.g. Stay Home – Stay Healthy) affected transportation statewide.

    Performance summary page

    This page provides summaries on five key transportation performance modes (State Highways, Toll Facilities, Ferries, Transit and Passenger Rail), including the latest data compared to the 2019 baseline through sparklines and tables. It also includes links to additional data and information on these modes as well as on other performance measures on topics ranging from Freight, Active Transportation and Aviation to Safety and Counties Data.

    The summary sections are divided into:

    ① Modes being analyzed
    ② Percentage change (based on the most recent available data) compared to the 2019 baseline
    ③ Statewide trend over time shown in a sparkline format
    ④ Drop-down menu filter to select different items (e.g. counties and highways)
    ⑤ Day-to-day data in table format, showing percentage change over time and for the most recent day
