The proposal builds on existing plans that Seattle residents have helped shape including the Seattle Transportation Plan and the One Seattle Plan. Key highlights include investing USD 27M in citywide projects designed to improve bus reliability, access and safety, USD 3M in increasing transit rider safety and security as well as USD 115M to make transit improvements on the streets and imporve access to Link Light Rail stations and advance key partnerships to form future Link Light Rail stations.
