A few people have emailed recently to ask what’s going on for opening weekend – and hopefully, the answer is you!
It sounds like Sound Transit’s entire staff will be spread among the stations to answer questions, but with the load expected on opening day, even that will be nowhere near enough. Separately, Transportation Choices Coalition is organizing as many volunteers as they possibly can – as many as 200 – to give out information and answer questions.
I can’t think of anyone better for this job than readers of this blog. I bet half the people riding the system on opening weekend won’t even know what ST2 contains, where U Link is going, or what ORCA is – and this is our chance to inform them. The easiest thing we can do to make people excited about transit is to let them know what’s already happening.
Can you do a four hour shift to help this run smoothly? I know I will be. Email Shefali@TransportationChoices.org if you think you can – or if you just want more information.
