Help Shape the Future of Transit in Seattle

SEATTLE—Starting next week, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will hold a series of open houses on the Transit Master Plan (TMP). The open houses will be an opportunity to learn about and comment on the City’s vision for top quality, frequent transit services over the next 20 years.

Open house dates and locations:

  • October 18 at Seattle Vocational Institute (2120 S Jackson St)
  • October 25 at Aljoya Thornton Creek (450 NE 100th St)
  • October 26 at West Seattle Eagles Hall (4426 California Ave SW)
  • November 15 at Ballard High School (1418 NW 65th St)
  • November 17 at New Holly Gathering Hall (7054 32nd Ave S)

All meetings will run from 6 to 8 p.m. and will begin with a brief presentation and overview of the evening. Attendees will then be able to learn about the project, talk to staff, ask questions, and provide comments. Each meeting will cover the same information. Detailed directions can be found at www.seattle.gov/transportation/tmp_outreach.htm.

SDOT released the TMP draft summary report in late September (available at www.seattle.gov/transportation/transitmasterplan.htm).

After this series of open houses, SDOT staff will present an outreach summary and revised report to the Mayor and City Council. The Council will then adopt a final plan in early 2012.
