Public transportation in the Puget Sound region of Washington State is provided for by seven transit agencies and the state ferry system. Through the Puget Sound Council of Governments, these providers cooperate to improve the regional public transportation system and to encourage intersystem use. This regional cooperation has not yet extended to providing for specialized transportation services. The Puget Sound Council of Governments formed a committee to study regional travel for specialized transportation users to appraise policies affecting specialized transportation and to promote service parity. The existing conditions, assessment findings, recommended policy direction, and implementation actions developed by the study group are reported in this paper. This study included the six-county area of Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish, and Thurston counties, Washington.
