Sound Transit is committed to integrating art and artist thinking into the design and construction of transit facilities and public spaces by involving artists in the station design process. As partners in the development of over 40 miles of new light rail connections, the Sound Transit Art Program (STart) has identified many opportunities for artwork to enrich our system for our patrons and the communities surrounding our stations.

STart, Sound Transit's art program, features world class artworks by nationally renowned artist as well as emerging public artists. Many live in the Pacific Northwest. Their work represents a diverse range of style, scale and perspective that creates welcoming and engaging environments for riders and others who interact with stations and construction sites.

Enjoy these artworks along your journey.
