The Boardmembers will present a proclamation to the Regional Express staff and Sound Transit's partner agencies (King County Metro, Pierce Transit and Community Transit) for their achievement of completing the express bus system outlined in Sound Move, the Regional Transit System Plan. A banner advertising the Sounder third train also will be unveiled.
