Sound Transit seeks public input on Sounder expansion
In 2016, Seattle voters approved the Sound Transit 3 measure to provide funding for capital improvements on Sounder South, such as longer trains and the potential for additional trips, as well as expansion to Tillicum and DuPont by 2036, Sound Transit officials said in a press release.
Public input will help influence Sound Transit officials as they determine which expansion projects to advance to the planning process next year.
Sounder South is operated on BNSF Railway Co.'s track from Seattle to Tacoma, and on Sound Transit's track from Tacoma to south of DuPoint. Any additional service would require negotiation with BNSF.
