No More Tacoma-to-SeaTac Light Rail?
Forget just stopping in Fife … Sound Transit is currently looking at alternate plans for light rail south of Sea Tac.
It comes down to money and Sound Transit’s concern that the high cost of light rail from Tacoma to the airport would derail (ugh!) the entire package.
From the Tribune:
Though specific costs were not discussed, the agency’s staff believes it would be cheaper to extend the Tacoma Link light-rail system from downtown to Tacoma General Hospital and to Tacoma Community College. A Link extension from the Tacoma Dome to Fife also is an option.
The article goes on to say that a more ambitious package could be passed in 2010 that would continue to expand transit options. What do you think? Is the light rail line to the airport worth it for you?
