Travel Washington Intercity Bus Program

This page highlights various services supported by WSDOT's Travel Washington Intercity Bus Program. The bus service connects rural communities to major transportation hubs and urban centers, filling gaps in the public transportation network and making travel more accessible, reliable and convenient.

The Intercity Bus Program

The Federal Transit Administration provides funding for the program. As part of a public private partnership, Greyhound Bus Lines provides in-kind match in the form of connecting services. 

WSDOT's Travel Washington Program contracts with private bus operators to provide intercity bus service. Each new route is served by the competitively-selected provider. Operators promote and market their services using WSDOT's Travel Washington brand.

The Travel Washington intercity bus network will continue to expand as funding becomes available. WSDOT considers the interests of the entire state—with an eye on areas with the fewest transportation options—when selecting new routes.

Based in part on feedback we received at public forums in 2018 in communities across the state, we're developing new or revised services for Travel Washington.
