Sound Transit to review suggestions from public for future expansion

Thursday, July 30, 2015


On June 4 the Sound Transit Board kicked off public comment on a draft list of projects proposed to be studied as candidates for the ST3 measure. Nearly 25,000 people took an online survey, doubling the response rate for last year’s survey.

Details on the public input can be found online an interactive website for the ballot measure that saw more than 54,000 unique page views during the comment period. The site offers an up-close look at the projects that are proposed to be studied for the November 2016 ballot measure.

A total of 1,025 people submitted written comments at meetings across the region and by email and mail, and more than 70 local governments and organizations sent comment letters.

Results of the non-scientific survey reflected strong support for expanding regional transit services, with 93 percent of the self-selected respondents voicing support. Seventy-eight percent of respondents said the Draft Priority Projects List was a good list of projects to study, while approximately 5,000 people responded to an open-ended question seeking input on other potential projects to study.

Next month the Sound Transit Board will discuss potential updates to the list.
