“A Sound Transit Update” presented by CEO Peter Rogoff,
introduced by Corey Margolis
Washington’s Sound Transit is the largest rail expansion in the country, serving a region of over 3.8 million people.  Total of 83 miles will be commuter rail.  Traffic has nearly doubled the past 6 years.    Funding comes from state sales tax, DOV motor vehicle excise tax and property tax. 
The Northgate Station is almost ready!  By the end of 2024, a true network will be in place, with 60 miles of rail, 44 stations and 2 separate rail lines.  One line will go to the eastside, the other southbound to SeaTac.
Light rail is a huge economic catalyst for business growth.  Two examples:  Amazon will be 1 block near the Bellevue station; a 16-story building is planned to be by the Lynnwood station.  Both will result in more jobs.
The 16.3-mile extension link from Lynnwood to Everett will begin in 2024.  Snohomish County will have 6 new stations on Evergreen Way and Downtown.  A typical commute from Everett to Seattle now takes 60 minutes.  Travel time will lessen considerably; currently it’s considered one of the worst commutes in the nation!  Sound Transit and Community Transit work co-operatively to ensure good geographic coverage and less duplication. 
Peter graciously answered questions at the end of his presentation. 
President Steve thanked Peter, guests and contributors. And adjourned the meeting. Rotary Connects the World.
