Transit Master Plan: Public Outreach

Fall 2011 Open Houses

SDOT hosted a series of 5 open houses to share information about the TMP Draft Summary Report and to get feedback from the community. Over 100 people attended. Thank you for participating!

On December 6, 2011, SDOT partnered with the Department of Planning and Development (DPD), Office of Sustainability and Environment (OSE), and the Department of Neighborhoods (DON) to reach out to historically underrepresented communities on housing, land use, climate, and transportation issues. DON’s planning outreach liaisons brought in community members representing eight different language groups – over 160 people attended the event. Mayor McGinn welcomed the crowd and Councilmembers Sally Clark and Mike O’Brien hosted a live-polling exercise that engaged the audience. 

Previous outreach

From October 2010 through February 2011, SDOT reached out to commuters, neighborhood organizations, large organizations, businesses, and transit agency planners and operators to learn what they believe to be the city’s greatest transit needs and to gather suggestions for improvements and ideas for the future. The outreach included interviews and focus groups, with 41 participants representing 26 organizations, and an online survey, which had over 12,000 responses. The survey yielded data that will be useful as SDOT develops the Transit Master Plan as respondents answered our questions about their use of transit services within Seattle. See a summary of the outreach efforts thus far here.
