Transit agencies working together

2020 Transit Integration Report highlights coordination efforts

The 2020 Transit Integration Report highlights coordination activities that are improving service for riders and offering transportation options throughout the region.

The central Puget Sound region has nine agencies and organizations that provide transit and ferry service to residents and visitors: City of Seattle, Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit, Pierce County, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit, and Washington State Ferries.

Close coordination between these agencies and other stakeholders is essential for providing customers with transportation options that are easy to use and get them where they need to go.

PSRC’s annual Transit Integration Report includes stories of transit coordination across the region that highlight how these coordination activities improve customer journeys and avoid duplicative or conflicting services.

Stories in the 2020 report include:

  • How agencies have worked together to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 and efforts by other transportation providers to deliver meals to older adults and other members of vulnerable populations during the pandemic.
  • Major coordination underway restructuring bus service to provide connect customers to light rail at Northgate Station. The station’s opening in 2021 provides Snohomish County residents an early opportunity to access the light rail system and expands the reach of frequent and reliable light rail service to other parts of Seattle, Shoreline, and North King County through frequent bus connections to Link light rail.

  • Efforts to modernize how customers pay for transit and programs that make those payments more affordable for customers with low incomes.
