Making Transit a Priority

Seattle has a robust transit program that is focused on making transit an easier choice for getting around the city. SDOT manages the public right of way, so we work to ensure that streets, sidewalks, and paths are well maintained to and serve transit and transit users well. You may have noticed some of the tools we use to improve bus stops, like bus bulbs that help buses load and unload without having to constantly merge in and out of traffic. Other tools include accessible bus stops, dedicated transit lanes, queue jumps, and signal priority. All of these measures help create a smoother, more dependable transit experience.

Our Transit Program has a lot of useful information about the work we do and future improvements. Click here to learn more about Seattle’s efforts to improve transit.
