Transit Implementation Plan


The Kirkland Transit Implementation Plan (KTIP) is a tool to improve transit in Kirkland to get residents where they want to go in the fastest and most convenient way possible. The plan incorporates the work of the regional King County Metro and Sound Transit plans and uses previously collected community input which was used to develop the City’s Transportation Master Plan in 2015. The KTIP was developed based on what we heard from the community during outreach between the fall of 2017 and the fall of 2018, as well as feedback from our regional partners.

The Kirkland Transit Implementation Plan(PDF, 16MB) was approved by Council on March 19, 2019.
