The Seattle Times editorial board says voters in the Puget Sound region should say no to Sound Transit 3 and ask Sound Transit to provide a more reasonable plan with more accountability. We couldn’t agree more. Effective transit is a crucial part of our growing region – but ST3 does nothing to reduce congestion, creates a new massive regional tax that never expires, and would take decades to complete. It is a bad deal. There are alternatives that could be implemented in less time, for significantly less cost, and would actually improve commutes. Sound Transit needs to look at those alternatives.
