In a unanimous decision Sept. 19, 2016, the Issaquah City Council endorsed Sound Transit 3 — a proposal to expand regional transit and bring light rail to Issaquah.
Voters will decide the Sound Transit 3 measure, titled regional Proposition 1, on the Nov. 8, 2016, general election ballot.
The 25-year plan also includes adding additional parking in Central Issaquah, along with other infrastructure enhancements. Riders could travel from downtown Bellevue to Central Issaquah in 17 minutes. Trains would run every six minutes in peak commute hours.
ST3 would also fund approximately 600,000 annual hours of ST Express bus service to continue serving future high-capacity transit corridors.
