Planning study news
The Unmet Needs Study was completed in June 2023. Findings from the Unmet Needs Study will shape the forthcoming statewide Public Transportation Plan update.
In 2022, WSDOT reviewed state and regional transportation plans, interviewed 30 people made up of transportation riders, providers, and advocates, and developed an economic model to answer the following two questions:
- What is the unmet need for public transportation in the state?
- How much would it cost to provide access to public transportation for those whose needs are unmet?
