          Policy Programs

           

          Good policy goes beyond bills, laws, and technical discussions. Our work is focused on helping cities, counties, and Washington State develop holistic transportation solutions that create connected communities and a healthy planet. We believe that engaging with the people most affected is at the center of strong and sustainable policy creation

          We are working to improve reliable and affordable access to transportation that connects our communities to jobs, education, health care, and each other. When our transportation system works for everyone, we all thrive. Here’s a look at our policy work:

          Access + Affordability

          Growing economic inequality is widening the gaps in access to mobility. Research is clear that reliable transportation is a key determinant of whether communities can thrive and realize their full potential. Great transit service is an essential transportation option and ensuring access.

          New Technology + Innovation

          Growth has accelerated demand for mobility and affordable housing options, a challenge that must be met if we want to remain prosperous, inclusive, and competitive. Technology presents an opportunity to create a more equitable system, with improved access for all — but only if we keep equity at the heart of policy development and focus on access, affordability, and sustainability.

          Health + Sustainability

          The car-dominant paradigm of the past fifty years has left our communities less connected, increasing emissions that are harming the planet, and resulting in adverse health outcomes, particularly for communities of color and low-income communities. Great transit service can provide more opportunities for physical activity, reduce stressful commutes, and help strengthen social networks.

          Recently passed ballot measures – including ST2, ST3, and Move Seattle – provide an unprecedented opportunity to expand the Puget Sound region’s high capacity transit system. We have a crucial role to play helping transit agency partners be successful. We work to ensure that these policies and voter-approved transit expansions are effectively implemented to support access and foster equitable, healthy communities connected by great transit.
