Developing regional transit
Sound Transit is governed by an 18-member Board of local elected officials. The Board:
- Establishes policies and gives direction and oversight
- Shapes Long-Range Plan and ballot measures
- Makes project decisions at critical milestones
- Approves major contracts
The Board meets regularly in meetings that are open to the public.
Sound Transit 3 connects region's cities with mass transit
In November, 2016 regional voters approved Sound Transit 3 (ST3). This 25-year mass transit expansion plan adds 62 miles of new Link light rail; brings rapid transit service north, east and south of Lake Washington; increases Sounder train capacity on the south line; and improves parking and access to stations throughout the system.
