Who is Sound Transit

We plan, build and operate regional transit systems and services to improve mobility in urban areas of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.

Bus Rapid Transit (coming soon!)

The BRT Stride system will be designed for fast arrivals and departures, with features such as off-board fare payment and multiple-door entry and exit. Transit priority improvements such as new bus lanes will help riders avoid traffic congestion and enjoy more frequent and reliable service. Stride will run seven days a week, every 10 minutes during rush hour.
