Welcome to the online engagement hub for the Seattle Transportation Plan

The Seattle Transportation Plan (STP) is a vision for the future of transportation in Seattle.

The STP is our commitment to building a transportation system that provides everyone with access to safe, efficient, and affordable options to reach places and opportunities. The STP will guide local transportation investments for the next 20 years – so we want to hear from you!

Our transportation system is more than just roads. It includes sidewalks, bridges, stairways, transit, paths and trails, bike lanes, crosswalks, public spaces like street cafes and benches, and much more. The transportation system is how everyone moves around the city, connecting us to places and opportunities. But COVID-19, climate change, and rapid population growth make it hard to keep this system running smoothly. That’s why we want to create a sustainable system that works now and in the future.

Get involved in planning the future of transportation in Seattle!

During the first phase of engagement, running from spring through summer 2022, SDOT will work with you – the community – to establish a collective vision for the future of transportation in Seattle, listening to you to understand your priorities, challenges, and needs as you move around the city.

What do we mean by a “collective vision for the future of transportation in Seattle”? The STP is an opportunity for us all to imagine how we want to move around the city in the future. We hope to hear about your ideas, experiences, challenges, and opportunities to help to build a network of streets and public spaces that meets everyone’s needs.

We want to know:

  • When you think about the future of transportation in Seattle, what do you hope to see? What is important to you?
  • As you move around Seattle, what challenges do you face? What would make getting around easier?

We will use your answers to these questions to build the foundation of the Seattle Transportation Plan. By taking part in the creation of the STP, you will help us build a transportation system that works better for everyone!

What is the environmental review process for the Seattle Transportation Plan?
What is the environmental review process for the Seattle Transportation Plan?

The STP will go through the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review process. SEPA ensures environmental values are thoroughly considered during the planning and decision-making processes. Under SEPA, and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is a required study that provides the City, public, and other agencies with anticipated environmental outcomes of the Seattle Transportation Plan. You can review our SEPA Fact Sheet to learn more!

How do I comment on the scope of the EIS?

Agencies, affected tribes, and members of the public are invited to comment on the scope of the EIS. You may comment on alternatives, mitigation measures, probable significant adverse impacts, and licenses or other approvals that may be required.

Scoping Comment Period: June 16–July 16, 2022
Scoping provides an opportunity for the community to share input with SDOT about what will be included in the Environmental Impact Statement.

How does the EIS support the Seattle Transportation Plan?

The findings of the EIS will reinforce our commitment to transparency and contribute to informed decision-making. Your comments on the EIS are being incorporated in tandem with input shared through the larger community engagement for the STP. You don’t need to reshare any comments you’ve already provided!

Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Release and 30-day Comment Period — Early 2023: Once the draft EIS is released, the community is invited to share comments. These comments are incorporated into the final EIS, along with responses.

Final EIS Published — Mid-2023: The final EIS, which includes responses to comments shared on the draft EIS, will be used to inform the decision-making process
