About the Center for Transportation

Center for Transportation

Launched in 2006, the Center for Transportation researches and analyzes the best practices for relieving traffic congestion by recapturing a vision of a system based on freedom of movement. Key aspects of this vision include reducing structural barriers that drive up costs, linking congestion relief with spending, improving accountability and transparency with the Department of Transportation and other local, state and federal transportation agencies. 

Top Policy Recommendations for 2013

  1. Constitutionally protect highway toll revenue so it is devoted solely to highway purposes.
  2. Make Sound Transit more accountable to the public by making its governing body a directly elected board.
  3. Respect people’s right to mobility by making traffic congestion reduction an official policy goal.
