[ARCHIVED] Share Your Ideas for Future Transit Service

Now is your chance to shape future transit options in our community, including light rail to Issaquah, regional ST Express service and improved access to transit.

Sound Transit is seeking input on a draft list of projects to be considered as possible candidates for a 2016 Sound Transit 3 ballot measure.

You’re invited to share your input about ST3 priorities through a survey, interactive website, social media and public meetings.

The list includes proposed projects with the potential to transform transit options in Issaquah and all of East King County, such as:

  • Link light rail for Totem Lake to Issaquah via Bellevue
  • ST Express bus service
  • System Access Program (pedestrian, bicyclist and parking enhancements)
  • Studies to examine future high-capacity transit options for Issaquah Highlands to Overlake via Sammamish and Redmond
  • Transit Oriented Development Program

At, you can learn more about the benefits of regional transit, explore potential projects and take a survey through July 8.

Use #ST3 to join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

Or, share your input in person at meetings throughout our region:

  • Seattle: June 16, Union Station, 401 S. Jackson St.
  • Everett: June 18, Everett Station, 3201 Smith Ave.
  • Redmond: June 23, Redmond Marriott, 7401 164th Ave. N.E.
  • Tacoma: June 24, Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center, 1500 Broadway
  • Seattle: 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. June 25, Union Station, 401 S. Jackson St.
  • Federal Way: June 25, King County Aquatic Center, 650 S.W. Campus Drive

Except for the June 25 daytime meeting in Seattle, all meetings run from 5:30-7:30 p.m., with presentations at 6 p.m.

Using your input, the board will identify a final list of projects to be studied this fall. Those studies will then shape a draft ST3 measure for public input in early 2016.
