The Seattle Public Schools (SPS) Transportation Department works with community and professional partners to provide safe, efficient, equitable, and reliable service in support of the district’s educational mission. SPS operates more than 342 bus routes for over 18,000 students.

In Spring 2016, graduate students in Prof. Anne Goodchild’s CEE 587: Global Trade, Transportation, and Logistics Management undertook a community pro bono project to assist SPS in reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT), CO2 emissions produced, ride time, and the number of routes.
