Metro Transit planning documents
Metro's Comprehensive Plan for Public Transportation and the 2007-2016 Strategic Plan for Public Transportation guide Metro's delivery of public transportation services. Both of these plans are scheduled to be updated in 2011.
The Comprehensive Plan for Public Transportation
The Comprehensive Plan for Public Transportation sets the policy basis for Metro. It identifies goals, objectives, and high-level policies to guide the management and development of public transportation services. Originally developed in 1993 as the Long Range Planning Framework, it was updated and renamed the Comprehensive Plan for Public Transportation in 2007. The update involved the addition of new policies to address locally developed transit services and transit-oriented development and to incorporate the Transit Now program.

Strategic Plan for Public Transportation, 2007-2016
Metro's Strategic Plan for Public Transportation provides the framework for transit service and capital investments. Adopted in November 2007 and updated in 2009, the Strategic Plan replaced and updated the 2002-2007 Six Year Transit Development Plan. The Strategic Plan sets forth strategies for transit, paratransit, and rideshare services and supporting capital facilities in King County, and guides annual operating and capital program decisions that define Metro services. It also incorporates the voter-approved Transit Now program and includes new strategies to address transit-oriented development and locally developed transit.
