2016: Passing Regional Mass Transit Initiative
Transportation produces the majority of Washington’s greenhouse gasses and increasing transit options is key in reducing single occupancy vehicle travel. That’s why we went all in on supporting a ballot measure to expand regional mass transit to provide cleaner options for getting around. The bold Sound Transit proposal will connect 16 cities with light rail, 30 cities with bus rapid transit/ST Express Bus and 12 cities with commuter rail across Pierce, King, and Snohomish counties. We dedicated our time to turning out our members to vote yes on this initiative which will result in an annual reduction of 667,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of taking nearly 142,000 cars off the road!
