Travel Washington Intercity Bus

Travel Washington intercity bus service connects rural communities to major transportation hubs and urban centers, filling gaps in the public transportation network and making travel more accessible, reliable and convenient. Travel Washington provides more than 30,000 trips per year despite serving some of the most rural parts of the state.

WSDOT's Travel Washington Program contracts with private bus operators to provide intercity bus service. Each new route is served by the competitively selected provider. Operators promote and market their services using WSDOT's Travel Washington brand. The Federal Transit Administration provides funding for the program. As part of a public private partnership, Greyhound Bus Lines provides in-kind match in the form of connecting services. The Travel Washington intercity bus network will continue to expand as funding becomes available. WSDOT considers the interests of the entire state—with an eye on areas with the fewest transportation options—when selecting new routes.
