The 18-member Sound Transit Board includes elected officials and the Secretary of the Washington State Department of Transportation.
We believe in leveling the playing field so that all businesses can compete to work on our transit projects. We value diversity and are committed to working with local businesses.
We have never lost sight of what drives us forward – our riders. There’s no opinion more valuable than yours. So we listen, learn and adapt to meet the needs of today and tomorrow.
Local taxes, including car tab, property and sales taxes make up just over half of Sound Transit's total funding. The rest comes from federal grants, fares, interest earnings and miscellaneous revenue.
We are accountable to you. That's why we strive for transparency – from cost and project controls, outside audits and oversight, and clearly defined and updated milestones.
Sound Transit offers freedom and flexibility with a reliable, inexpensive, safe and comfortable alternative to driving.
