Sound Transit Fights Congestion - On the Streets and Across Their WAN

Sound Transit was created by voters in 1996 to plan, build and operate a mass transit system to fight traffic congestion and its impact on the economy, environment, and quality of life in Central Puget Sound. Today, the agency runs 19 express bus routes, 74 miles of commuter train service and light rail in Tacoma. In addition, Sound Transit is building a 15-mile light rail line from downtown Seattle to Sea-Tac International Airport, as well as park-and-ride lots, transit centers, and HOV access lanes throughout the region.
