Washington State Trends in Commuting and Non-Work Travel

The work is intended to highlight changes in travel as related to changes in socio-economic conditions and development patterns. It will help further the understanding of possible scenarios for future transportation demand. Secondary longitudinal data being often inconsistent, the analysis will be descriptive and projections will remain conjectural. The issues raised, however, will serve to guide the development of future transportation policy as related to the State’s population and economic projections.
