Sound Transit System Access Policy

The Sound Transit resolution establishing a system access policy for infrastructure and improvements to facilitate customer access to transit services has been added to the Resource Center best practices.

The resolution establishes policy on Sound Transit’s support and investment in system access improvements providing for pedestrian, bicycle, connecting transit and vehicle access.

This policy establishes:

  • Criteria for consideration in determining investments in system access facilities and infrastructure.
  • Parking management tools including parking permits and fees.
  • Parking enforcement mechanisms.

The goals of the System Access Policy and Sound Transit’s system access efforts are to increase transit ridership and to encourage convenient and safe connections to Sound Transit services through ferry services, Paratransit, pedestrian and bicycle access, and private vehicle pick-up and drop-off and parking.
