COVID-19 Multimodal Transportation System Performance Dashboard


Washington state has seen a significant decline in travel across all modes of transportation since mid-March. Washingtonians have responded positively to Gov. Inslee’s various COVID-19 related initiatives such as closing schools (March 12), restricting gatherings to fewer than 50 people (March 16), and the Stay Home – Stay Healthy Executive Order (March 25).

Multimodal travel changes in Highway Traffic, Toll Systems, and Ferries, Transit and Passenger Rail ridership are reflected in the executive summary below. Due to state-mandated furloughs during July, the latest data displayed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will be for the previous Thursday. Data for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will be added to the dashboard the following Monday. The summary will be updated by 10:30 a.m. on the weekdays from Monday through Friday. For deeper dives into the data and daily updates to information on COVID-19’s effects on items ranging from Freight and Safety to County data, see buttons below.

WSDOT is monitoring these system-wide transportation changes based on data from WSDOT Traffic Information, the Washington State Transit Association and the Department of Health. If you are a local agency and would like to share your transportation data here, please email us the information at C19data@wsdot.wa.gov.

Note: Baseline is defined as volume number from the same weekday of the same month from the year 2019. For example, Wednesday, April 3, 2019 would serve as the baseline for comparing the volume data from Wednesday, April, 1, 2020. The dramatic increase shown for Thursday, July 2, 2020 is because the comparison day aligns with Thursday, July 4, 2019 and the holiday travel associated with that date.
