The Washington County Transit Study identifies a vision for public transit in the county for the next 20 years. The executive summary is available for review. The full report is available on request. Email [email protected]


Public transit in Washington County today includes bus, light rail, Community Connector, on-demand and shuttle service. As we look to the future, how can transit serve as a viable transportation option, help us expand economic opportunity and improve livability in the county?

Key outcomes of the study include:

  • Clearly identify transit needs in the County
  • Create a vision that is grounded in the experience of transit customers
  • Define actions the County and its local partners can take to support transit; for example, giving buses priority, improving access to stops and stations and strengthening regional partnerships
