A Long Range Transit Plan for Whatcom Transportation Authority

Whatcom Transportation Authority’s (WTA’s) long range transit plan, “WTA 2040,” will create policies and strategies to guide the next 20 years. The timing may not seem ideal, as transit is facing major challenges due to COVID-19. Despite these challenges, planning for the future of public transportation remains as important as ever.

Working with riders, residents, businesses, and more, WTA 2040 will guide WTA’s decision-making on services, equipment, and infrastructure investments – helping to optimize transit provision for the long haul. This website provides information on the planning process, upcoming events, ways to get involved and provide input, and background documents.
