Regional Transportation Plan

Regional Transportation Plan

The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is the long-range transportation plan for the central Puget Sound region. The RTP is adopted every four years, and is designed to implement the region’s growth plan, VISION 2050. The RTP meets all state and federal requirements and is based on the latest data, adopted land use assumptions, and technical tools. 

The plan was developed with extensive engagement with board members, technical committees, member jurisdictions, and the public. The plan implements the polices and goals in VISION 2050, outlining multimodal investments the region is making in transit, rail, ferry, streets and highways, freight, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and other systems to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.

On April 28, 2022, the PSRC Executive Board unanimously recommended adoption of the Regional Transportation Plan for action by the General Assembly. The General Assembly adopted the plan on May 26, 2022.

The Regional Capacity Projects List and Approval Process page includes a list of current regional capacity projects, as well as information on thresholds and approval requirements.
