VISION 2050 sets course for the region

VISIOn 2050

PSRC’s General Assembly voted to adopt VISION 2050 on October 29.  The plan moves the region forward with a focus on leveraging future transit investments to build affordable, equitable, and sustainable communities -- key elements to support a thriving regional economy.

I’d like to give a special shout out to staff, elected leadership and community members who contributed to the creation of one of the best regional plans in the country. Here’s to continuing to work together to make VISION 2050 a reality and create a bright future for all communities in the central Puget Sound region!

 

How are you adapting during COVID? Please take this quick survey!

I hope you'll spend a few moments to take a new survey from the University of Washington and PSRC. It asks about daily routines and “teleliving" during the pandemic and will help inform future transportation strategies.

 

Transit matters to people of color

Our analysis of household travel survey data revealed that nearly a third of the region's residents said they would take transit more if it had better frequency, reliability or safer ways to get to stops.

People of color were more likely to say they would ride transit more often after these changes. One factor is that people of color rely more on transit to get around.

 

Park-and-ride use grew from 2002 to 2019

We recently launched a new dashboard with park-and-ride data at the county and subarea levels. Across the region, both available and occupied spaces at park-and-ride lots have steadily grown over the last few decades.

Of course, park and rides are less busy today than a year ago. PSRC will add 2020 transit agency data to the dashboard as it becomes available, and we’ll share findings going forward on COVID-19 impacts on transit use
