Sound Transit seeks public input on system expansion

ST3_DisplayAd_Online_300x250Sound Transit is planning for the next round of system expansion to increase mobility for people throughout the Puget Sound Region.

The Sound Transit Board is seeking input on a draft list of projects to be considered possible candidates for a ballot measure to fund the next round of regional mass transit investments. After collecting input on the Draft Priority Projects List, the board will identify a final list of projects to be studied this fall. The results of those studies will support further narrowing by the board to shape a draft Sound Transit 3 measure for public input in early 2016.

An interactive Sound Transit 3 website offers community members a chance to learn more about regional transit benefits, explore potential projects, and take a survey through July 8. In addition, six public meetings around the region begin June 16:

 

Except the June 25 daytime meeting in Seattle, all of the meetings will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The Puget Sound region’s expected 30-percent population growth by 2040 will be equivalent to adding the populations of Tacoma, Seattle and Bellevue combined to our already congested transportation network, Sound Transit notes. Take a survey through July 8. Visit the Sound Transit 3 website to learn more.
