Free Ride to Continue on Tacoma’s Link
Tacoma's Link light rail will now remain free to ride for two more years, thanks to the downtown BIA.
Last night Sound Transit unanimously approved the local group's offer to pay $29,000 a year for the next two years to cover the income the transit agency would have earned by beginning to collect $1 fares this September.
The Link will now remain free until September 2016, when it is now scheduled to begin collecting $1.5 for full-fare adult riders.
