About Sound Transit

We're connecting more people to more places to make life better and create equitable opportunities for all Sound Transit builds and operates regional transit service throughout the urban areas of Pierce, King and Snohomish Counties. Transit services include Link light rail; Sounder trains; ST Express Bus; Tacoma Link light rail; and soon, Bus Rapid Transit. With voter-approval, Sound Transit is in the process of planning and building the most ambitious transit expansion in the country.

Sound Transit is uniquely positioned amongst the nation’s transit agencies due to strong dedicated tax revenues from sales taxes and motor vehicle excise taxes.  The Agency is not overly reliant on farebox revenues and has strong demonstrated support from the area’s voters.  The Agency is undertaking the nation’s largest transit expansion program, and has the resources to do so successfully.
