What is the Regional Transportation Plan?

The Regional Transportation Plan is updated every four years to describe how the four-county central Puget Sound region plans for and improves the transportation system into the future, while addressing existing needs and expected growth.

Building from the polices and goals in VISION 2050, the plan outlines investments the region is making in transit, rail, ferry, streets and highways, freight, bicycle and pedestrian and other systems to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. It lays the region on the path to:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet regional climate goals
  • help create a healthier, safer, more equitable system with access to an expanded transit network
  • prepare for the upcoming updates of local comprehensive plans expected by 2024

A long-range Regional Transportation Plan is required in order for federal transportation funds to continue to flow in the region.

With its many partners and stakeholders, PSRC undertook a two-year process to develop the draft Regional Transportation Plan, which addresses the needs of people and goods movement through 2050. The process included extensive research, data collection and analysis, board discussions, and public engagement.
