As the Seattle region expands its high-capacity transit network, Sound Transit is thinking strategically about the future role of ST Express commuter bus service, which was designed as the precursor to light rail and BRT service. TMD completed a comprehensive operational analysis of the ST Express bus network and developed recommendations for effectively adjusting ST Express service as the Link light rail network grows, maximizing overall network accessibility, efficiency, and effectiveness. TMD also brought our best practice knowledge of performance monitoring to the project, updating Sound Transit’s service design guidelines and performance measures.
