The Sound Transit Board went over the survey results yesterday, and they released the results here along with a phone poll. My quick analysis of the phone poll, not the survey.

  • 9000 responses is a lot for a survey that supposedly everyone hated.
  • 82% of people either strongly favor or favor expanding rail.
  • More than half of people want ST2 on the ballot this year.
  • People were split on whether they wanted more commuter rail or light rail, this is likely because people don’t understand the difference.

More analysis to come, but the poll points to a good chance of ST2 coming back this year.
