Learn more about Transit through our Transit Master Plan Briefing Book

Interested in learning more about Seattle’s existing transit services, people’s travel patterns and new transit markets? Perhaps you’re curious about how other cities are dealing with transit challenges? Or want to find out about transit best practices around the US and the world?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, our Transit Master Plan Briefing Book has something for you! With eight different chapters that cover the questions above and many more, the Briefing Book is a high-level snapshot of the state of the Seattle transit environment. It describes the system’s current condition and projects future conditions through a travel and transit market analysis.

The briefing book also summarizes the feedback that the project team received from our advisory groups, stakeholder interviews and other early outreach efforts. It examines pedestrian and bicycle connections to transit, considers the important relationship between land use and transit, and provides examples of policies that prioritize transit services.

Brought to you as part of the Walk Bike Ride effort, the briefing book is an excellent resource that provides a foundation for Seattle’s Transit Master Plan. Take a few minutes to learn a little more about transit by visiting the project Web site …and don’t forget to tell us what you think!
