Seattle public supports transit expansion

Posted on March 19, 2008

Sound Transit received strong support for expanding public transit after sending out a call for the public to offer input on the future of mass transit in the Puget Sound region.  

This perspective is mirrored in the results of a scientific telephone survey in which the same questions were posed to 800 randomly selected residents. The results of both surveys are available at

The Sound Transit board of directors is taking a renewed look at what transit service expansions can be accomplished soonest as part of a package with a lower cost. The options under review span the entire region and focus on meeting current demand, as well as future population and employment growth through a package of rail and express bus expansions, targeting investments for the right corridors. The package will build on the regional transit system voters launched in 1996.
