The City of Sammamish is excited to announce that City Council adopted the Sammamish Transit Plan on March 19th, 2024.   

The Transit Plan is a document that will help guide the City in making transit related improvements and will also  inform the Transportation Element of the City's  Comprehensive Plan Update.  Through this process a list of projects has been developed.  Our goal of the project list is to be realistic, implementable and to ultimately improve transit in Sammamish.

A public hearing on this draft plan was held during the March 5, 2024 City Council Meeting and continued to March 19th, 2024 City Council Meeting for additional public comment.    

The adopted Transit Plan includes service, capital, and policy components, each playing an important role in guiding future transportation investments that align with the community’s vision and goals.  All of this was developed through a robust, collaborative process with stakeholders and the community.

The Project Team engaged with the community in a variety of ways, including online, in-person, and in targeted groups. Your input assisted the Project Team in developing targeted strategies to improve transit services in Sammamish. 

Please take a look at the community interactive comments we received by:

On June 29, 2023, a Transit Plan Open House was held to provide the community an overview of the Project and some initial data on transit in Sammamish.  The video can be viewed below if you were not able to make the meeting in person.  Additionally, you can view the presentation slides here.

Why is the City working on a Transit Plan?

Transit plays an important role in addressing Sammamish’s future growth and challenges.  We need to better understand the opportunities and constraints associated with existing and future transit service to best plan for and implement transit improvements that will better serve more Sammamish residents.   The Transit Plan will help Sammamish achieve a multi-modal transportation system to safely and efficiently get you where you need to go.

What is a Transit Plan?

A transit plan is a comprehensive approach to understanding how transit serves residents and how it can be improved to meet current and future needs.  In Sammamish, the Transit Plan will have three main components, comprising transit service, capital projects, and policy.
