Planning Update: Our Preferred Alternative


Sound Transit’s Proposed Plan vs Northwest Seattle Coalition’s Requested Route



Who are we?

We’re a diverse coalition of neighborhood, industry, and business groups advocating for a more reliable, safer, higher quality investment in our rapid transit network that the entire region will have to use for the next century.


Why do we need your help?

Sound Transit increased the size of the ST3 Package but not their attention to the route with the highest ridership of all Sound Transit 3 projects, the critical Ballard-to-Downtown corridor. Sound Transit has already studied a better alternative: the Tunnel to Ballard. We are working to be sure the Tunnel to Ballard is selected as the ‘preferred alternative’ and constructed.

We are working to be sure the Tunnel to Ballard is selected as the ‘preferred alternative’ that is constructed. We need all the help we can get to make a difference before Sound Transit finalizes the system plan.
