Take The Washington State Transportation Survey

The Washington State Transportation Commission has created an online survey for the public to let  local and state leaders know what transportation needs are most important and what the transportation priorities should be.

"This is an opportunity for you to help shape the future of your local, regional, and statewide transportation system," the information says.

The survey is part of the Commission’s statewide outreach program in which the Commission asked King County to help inform people about it. The results of the survey will be reported to the Governor, Legislature, policy makers, and advisory groups such as the Connecting Washington Task Force.

The survey which takes about 20-30 minutes to complete asks questions about what type of transportation is most important, how it should be paid for, how tolling revenue should be used, and other similar questions.

"The Transportation Commission reviews and assesses the entire transportation system and issues the state’s 20-year Transportation Plan. It also adopts tolls for state highways and bridges and fares for Washington State Ferries.  The Commission also provides a public forum for transportation policy development," the website says.
