About the Project


The Puget Sound Regional Travel Study, conducted in the spring of 2014 and 2015, was a survey of household demographics, daily travel activities, and typical travel patterns throughout the region. Reliable transportation and viable travel options contribute to the region’s quality of life and economic vitality. The results of the study are helping communities plan transportation improvements to best fit their residents’ needs.

Thank you to everyone who participated!

The Puget Sound Regional Travel Study region includes all of King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. The region includes 82 cities and towns, with a total population of over 3.7 million people.

By 2040, the central Puget Sound region is expected to grow by about 1.2 million people. This rise in population and expected job growth could lead to a 40% increase in travel demand in the region. Planners in the region are rising to the challenge to accommodate the growing demand for travel while addressing resident and environmental concerns and providing flexibility for future changes.
