Print Size: 11 x 17 inches (see link below)

Arterial roads in unincorporated King County are classified into groups according to the type of service they are intended to provide. Such functional classification helps to define the part that any individual road will play in serving the flow of traffic through the road system.

This map depicts the three arterial road classifications in unincorporated King County, which are Principal Arterial, Minor Arterial and Collector Arterial.

This map and information on the arterial classification system can be found on the King County Road Services Division website.

Specific descriptions and design features for the arterial classifications can be found in the 2007 King County Road Design and Construction Standards.

Geospatial PDF files

These maps are the first in the Virtual Map Counter to be offered in the geospatial PDF format. Geospatial PDF files can be read in Adobe Acrobat Reader and other PDF readers just like regular PDF files. But they also contain map projection and coordinate information which gives them additional functionality, such as the ability to use the geographic location and measurement tools built into Reader (versions 9 and higher). Even more geographic tools are available when viewing the maps in the free "PDF Maps" app for the Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) from Avenza Systems, Inc. See the Avenza website for full information (external link).

The “Regional Transit Map Book” is a 24-page collection of regional and local transit maps, service information, and provider contacts. It functions as both a high-level regional overview of public transportation options, and a convenient starting point for transit trip planning within the Sound Transit service area.

Booklet features include a region-wide map that delineates the three-county Sound Transit District, and a separate larger-scale map for each of the five Sound Transit service subareas. The subarea maps depict all Sound Transit routes and the connecting local bus routes. Additional maps show even more detail for key urban transit locales.

The maps are supplemented by tables of transit facilities, such as transit centers and park-and-ride lots, as well as the transit service options available at each facility. Bus route tables identify the routes depicted on the maps by number, description, and hours of service.

Contact information for nearly twenty Puget Sound area transit service providers ensures ready access to the full range of regional travel options, including online trip planning services.

The "Regional Transit Map Book" was conceived and developed by Sound Transit (external link) with cartographic and booklet design, layout, and production contracted to the King County GIS Center and executed by its Client Services team. Printed copies of the booklet are available at many transit locations throughout the service area.

First edition: June 2006, second edition: February 2008, third edition: October 2010.
Current edition: February 2014.
