Transportation Planning, Data and R - Department of Transportation

The Transportation Planning, Data and Research program primarily supports planning activities within the Multimodal Planning Division, as well as Capital Program Development and Management, Budget and Financial Analysis, Rail, Freight and Ports Division, Active Transportation Division, Urban Mobility and Access, Safety, Quality & Enterprise Risk Division, Washington State Ferries, Traffic Operations and WSDOT regional planning offices. Federal State Planning and Research (SPR) funds – a 2 percent set aside of transportation funds coming to Washington – provide over half of the program budget and can be used only for federally eligible planning related activities. The program provides the policies, data, information, analysis, plans, recommendations, prioritization and research that decision makers need when making transportation system investments. Units supported by the program collaborate with tribal governments, local governments, metropolitan, regional, and federal transportation agencies, and other stakeholders to make efficient use of resources and to provide an integrated, multimodaltransportation system supporting our communities, economy and environment.
