The City of Seattle selected CH2M as its program management consultant to deliver the RapidRide Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Expansion Program.

With the potential to influence transportation within Seattle for generations to come, this ambitious BRT program, which is part of the voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle, will provide high-quality transit throughout some of the densest areas of Seattle. The expansion includes building seven Seattle RapidRide BRT corridors by 2024; incorporating the multimodal commitments in the levy and modal plans; and funding design and implementation of multimodal corridors using standard and innovative funding approaches.

As program management consultant, CH2M will assist the Seattle Department of Transportation in addressing the mobility needs of its rapidly growing city by developing and administering an overall program structure and implementation plan for the program, consistent with the levy objectives and King County Metro RapidRide program standards.

Gaining 100,000 new residents and approximately 50,000 jobs over the last 20 years, Seattle is projected to bring 60,000 additional residents and another 50,000 jobs in the next 10 years. The Levy to Move Seattle is a bold vision of an integrated, multimodal network that will provide an easy-to-use, reliable transportation system that gives citizens the options they want when they need them.
