Transit Supportive Planning Toolkit: Guidance and Resources for Plan and Policy Development

Regional Planning Entity
Urban | Suburban | Rural
The Puget Sound region is estimated to grow to 5 million people and 3 million jobs by 2040 and in order to accommodate that growth, better access to a strong multimodal transportation system is needed. This Toolkit was developed by the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) to provide strategies that strengthen the linkage between land use and transit in local plans and implementation regulations, as well as to provide important PSRC and transit agency contacts and web resources.

The three general strategies for successfully implementing transit supportive planning detailed in the Toolkit are coordinating land use and transportation, supporting multimodal mobility, and connecting people to transit. Case studies of successful implementation of these strategies are given as examples for local communities to use when developing their own policies.
