Local elects are meeting right now at University of Washington Station to talk about a new approach to integrated transit services throughout the Puget Sound. Aleks gave us an update on King County Executive Dow Constantine’s plan back in June. Constantine called for better ways to rationalize and align service between Metro and Sound Transit. But as we see from today’s meeting, the breadth of the approach is far greater than that. Follow Will Green’s tweets for updates of the meeting.

  1. I’m really pleased when leadership sets the expectation of cooperation rather than protecting turf – which is the natural human tendency. Kudos to Executive Constantine for setting such an example. Our region is going to greatly benefit from this cooperation in the form of harmonized transfers and routes that are less duplicative and more frequent and connective. And they might even save some money in the process.
