TRANSPORTATION IS ABOUT MORE than buses and trains, pathways and tracks. It is about getting from point A to point B, allowing people the freedom to live, connect, engage and be involved in their cities and towns. It is about what people do, how they work and where they play.
By choosing to walk, bike and ride transit, Washingtonians are making a choice that benefits our environment, boosts our economy, and brings us a small step closer to a sustainable, secure future. Buses, trains, footpaths and bike lanes are also the foundation upon which we can build communities that make sense for the people who live in them – neighborhoods which promote healthy lifestyles and connecting people.
We seek to bring Washingtonians more and better transportation choices -- real opportunities to take a bus, catch a train, ride a bike, or walk.
OVER THE PAST FIFTY YEARS, the U.S. has developed a transportation system that is environmentally, economically and socially unsustainable. It was from this landscape that Transportation Choices Coalition emerged in 1993, inspired by the tremendous challenge of changing the state’s future.
