Regional Mobility Grants Program

The Regional Mobility Grant program supports local efforts to improve transit mobility and reduce congestion on our most heavily traveled roadways. During its session in 2017, the Washington State Legislature approved 44 new and continuing RMG projects across the state for the 2017-2019 biennium, appropriating approximately $93 million in state funding. The complete list of new projects is below. 

Funded local projects include:
  • New transit services that connect urban centers.
  • Park and ride lots and expansions.
  • New buses.
  • Rush-hour transit service along congested corridors.
Authorization for the Regional Mobility Grant program is supported in statute by RCW 47.66.030 .
