Connecting Communities Through Multimodal Planning

Multi Modal Planning

This summer Transpo has been busy working on a variety of multimodal planning projects. Some of our latest efforts include the Bellingham Bicycle Master Plan, the Skagit Non-Motorized Connectivity Study, and the Bellevue Transit Master Plan. While individual work elements and challenges vary for each project, they share one of the same overall goals – to create vibrant, livable communities that better connect residents with all modes of transportation.

Pierce County, WA


Owner:

Pierce County, WA


Location:

Tacoma, WA

Transpo worked with Pierce County and the Pierce County Coordinated Transportation Coalition (PCCTC) to update the 2007 Coordinated Transportation Plan, which addressed federal planning requirements. A critical goal in developing this plan was providing a forum for citizen and transit user input. Transpo worked alongside Pierce County staff and assisted at community meetings. The plan was focused on increasing ride service for targeted populations, simplifying access to transportation, and improving customer satisfaction. Transpo used GIS to analyze social demographics within the study area. Our research resulted in recommending increased funding for special needs transportation, grouping trips and sharing costs, providing transportation services for senior citizens, and changes in program policies.
