Frequent Transit Service Study


Welcome to the Frequent Transit Service Study project page. This is where you’ll find information about the work WSDOT and its partners are doing to conduct the study. We’ll be updating this page frequently as this work progresses.


During its 2022 session, the Legislature passed a budget proviso (ESSB 5689 (PDF 975KB) Sec 221(15)(a)) instructing WSDOT to produce a study that:

  • Defines “frequent fixed-route transit” and “accessible frequent fixed-route transit”
  • Analyzes the state of Washington and identifies where gaps exist to these types of transit, particularly for certain demographics
  • Identifies how many people live within a half-mile walk of these types of transit
  • Provides potential funding scenarios to address those gaps
