Tomorrow's Sound Transit Board meeting to be held in Tacoma

Publish Date
Body

To help ensure opportunities for people throughout the entire three-county district to meet with the Sound Transit Board, it has been Sound Transit's long-standing policy to hold at least one full board meeting every three months in both Snohomish and Pierce counties. Including Tacoma, the full Sound Transit Board has held meetings in Everett, Des Moines and Edmonds.

Voter-approved in 1996, Sound Transit is on track to implement a three-county regional transit system plan known as Sound Move. Sound Move is a seamless blend of three transportation systems: Sounder commuter rail, running 82 miles from Everett to Tacoma/Lakewood; Link light rail, a 21-mile system connecting the cities of Seattle, Tukwila and SeaTac and a 1.6 mile system in Tacoma; and Regional Express, featuring 18 new ST Express limited stop, long-haul bus routes and numerous improvements to transit centers, park-and-ride lots and HOV lanes throughout the region.

For more information on Sound Move, please visit the Sound Transit website at www.soundtransit.org/, or call or write for more information at Sound Transit, Union Station, 401 S. Jackson St., Seattle, WA 98104, (206) 398-5000 or 1-800-201-4900.
