Sound Transit seeks input on long-range plan

During the next several weeks, Sound Transit officials will host a series of meetings to gather public input on its Regional Transit Long Range Plan.

Officials will provide estimated costs, travel times and ridership for proposed transit expansions, such as adding rail or bus rapid transit service along Interstate 90, operating light-rail service between Everett and Tacoma, Wash., extending the Tacoma Link light-rail line west, and adding light-rail service along I-405 and across Lake Washington on State Route 520.

Sound Transit officials expect to finalize a plan in June, then work with local communities to identify the highest-priority projects, which will be included in a "Sound Transit 2" long-range plan subset.
