Invitation to RAMP Participants

During the months of February and March, Sound Transit and the Regional Transportation Investment District (RTID) are seeking public input on the draft Roads & Transit package.

The Roads & Transit package will present to voters a unified program of investments in freeways, light rail, commuter rail, HOV lanes, park-and-ride lots, and express and local bus service. Key features include:

  • Reduction in traffic delays
  • Faster travel times
  • 42 miles of new light rail
  • Major improvements to “highways of regional significance” and chokepoints--including I-5, I-405, SR-167, and the Cross-Base Highway
  • 10,000 new park-and-ride stalls
  • New HOV lanes
  • Bike lanes, sidewalks, better connections
  • Major freight routes improved

RAMP participants are encouraged to let Sound Transit and the RTID know if they're on the right track before a final Roads & Transit ballot is adopted for voter consideration in November:

  • Monday, March 5th
  • 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Washington State History Museum
    1911 Pacific Ave, Tacoma
