SOUND ACCESS FOR ALL
Sound Transit is currently making station-area planning and engineering decisions that will shape the surrounding communities for decades to come. Now is the time to design light rail stations with a people-oriented approach, to build transit ridership, and to support communities that allow transit to get us to work, to school, and to leisure destinations.
Feet First collaborates with Sound Transit, community leaders and local jurisdictions to ensure station designs are:
Facilities must be useable by all pedestrians, regardless of age, gender, race, or ability.
The pedestrian network and light rail must be complementary components of one transportation system.
Local communities’ needs and functions must be incorporated into the design.
Sound Access for All builds on the following successes:
- We convinced the Sound Transit Board to adopt a system-wide Access Policy for Sound Transit 3 ballot measure.
- We worked with policy makers to secure $35 million to fund a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over I-5 to connect thousands of North Seattle college students, faculty, and staff with the future Northgate Light Rail Station.
- We led coalitions across the region that support putting people first in the design of our Link light rail stations
