                                 BUDGET OVERVIEW
    SOUND TRANSIT—THE CENTRAL PUGET SOUND REGIONAL
    TRANSIT AUTHORITY

    How the Agency was Established
    In the early 1990s, the Washington Legislature authorized King, Pierce and Snohomish counties
    to create a single agency—the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (Sound Transit)—
    to plan, build and operate a high-capacity transit system within the region’s most heavily used
    travel corridors. In September 1993, the Sound Transit Board of Directors held its first official
    meeting. The Sound Transit District includes the most urban parts of the three-county area and
    close to half of the state’s population.

    History of Sound Move
    In May 1996, the Sound Transit Board adopted Sound Move. The plan includes a mix of
    transportation improvements: high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane access improvements, ST
    Express bus routes, Sounder commuter rail and Link light rail. The plan includes new community
    “gateways”— connections in urban and suburban areas for communities to connect to the rest of
    the region. Sound Move is a comprehensive regional transit plan made up of almost 100 separate
    but interrelated capital and service projects. The plan also contains commitments to:
    •   Equitable revenue distribution. Local tax revenues will be used to benefit the five subareas of
        the Sound Transit District (Snohomish County, North King County, South King County, East
        King County and Pierce County) based on the share of revenues each subarea generates.
    •   Coordinated services and integrated fares. Regional and local transit services will be
        coordinated and an integrated fare structure developed.
    •   System expansion or tax rollback. Any second phase capital program that continues using
        local taxes for financing will require voter approval within the Sound Transit District. If
        voters decide not to extend the system, Sound Transit will roll back the tax rate to a level
        sufficient to pay off outstanding debt, and operate and maintain the investments made as part
        of Sound Move.
    •   Public accountability. Sound Transit will hire independent auditors and appoint a citizen
        committee to monitor Sound Transit’s performance in carrying out its public commitments.
        Citizens will be directly involved in the placement, design and implementation of facilities in
        their communities.

    Voter Approval
    On November 5, 1996, voters in the three-county Sound Transit District approved the local taxes
    necessary to fund the regional bus and rail transit systems described in Sound Move by a 56.5
    percent to 43.5 percent margin. The measure received a majority of votes in each of the three
    counties in the Sound Transit District (58.8 percent in King County, 54.4 percent in Snohomish
    County and 50.1 percent in Pierce County).


    On November 4, 2008, voters in the three-county Sound Transit District approved the local taxes
    necessary to fund approximately 36 more miles of light rail, 17 percent more express bus service
    and additional Sounder commuter rail service described in the regional Mass Transit Expansion
    Proposal (ST2) by a 57 percent to 43 percent margin. The measure was approved by 61 percent
    in King County, 54 percent in Snohomish County and 49 percent in Pierce County.



Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                              Page 1 of 312
    Sound Transit’s Mission and Measures of Success
    Sound Transit’s Mission
    Sound Transit’s mission is to build and operate an integrated regional high-capacity
    transportation system serving the three-county Sound Transit district. The services include
    commuter rail, light rail and regional bus services and capital facilities. Sound Transit is
    implementing its Sound Move regional plan in partnership with public agencies, jurisdictions,
    private sector and other interests, and the citizens of the Sound Transit District.
    Sounder commuter rail
    •   An 83-mile commuter rail system with 4 round trip trains between Everett and Seattle and 9
        round trip trains between Seattle through Tacoma to Lakewood and 12 stations.
    Regional Express bus and facilities
    •   19 ST Express regional bus routes to better connect cities and suburbs throughout the region
        and link with other local and regional transit services.
    •   Sound Transit is funding HOV access to 100 miles of freeway, bus, and carpool lanes to
        ensure fast and reliable local connections for regional bus service, to encourage carpool and
        vanpool use, and eliminate the need for buses, carpools, and vanpools to weave through
        general traffic at freeway entrances and exits.
    •   Community Connections includes stations, transit centers, park-and-ride lots, and arterial
        improvements to provide access to the regional transit network.


    Link light rail
    •   A 1.6-mile Link light rail line currently operating in Tacoma that connects the downtown,
        business, theater, and university districts with local and ST Express regional buses and
        Sounder commuter rail services at the new Tacoma Dome Station.
    •   Approximately 19 miles of new Central Link light rail transit that connects the University of
        Washington, Capitol Hill, downtown Seattle, southeast Seattle, Tukwila and SeaTac.
    •   The Initial Segment of the Central Link line is a 14-mile route that connects downtown
        Seattle, Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley with the Tukwila International Boulevard Station at
        South 154th Street in Tukwila near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
    •   The Airport Link Segment of the Central Link line is approximately 1.7 miles in length
        extending from the Tukwila International Boulevard Station (South 154th Street) to a station
        near the main terminal at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
    •   The University Link Segment of the Central Link line connects downtown Seattle to Capitol
        Hill and the University District. University Link is the first segment of North Link that will
        be constructed, extending about 3 miles from downtown Seattle to a station on Capitol Hill
        and north to the University of Washington Station near Husky Stadium.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                             Page 2 of 312
    The voter approved Mass Transit Expansion (ST2) builds on the Sound Move program by:

        •    Adding 36 more miles of light rail to serve three major travel corridors. Link light rail
             would extend from North Seattle into Snohomish County, across Lake Washington into
             East King County and south of Sea-Tac International Airport to Federal Way.

        •    Providing 17 percent more express bus service, including 100,000 additional bus hours
             starting in 2009.

        •    Adding 65 percent more Sounder service capacity between Tacoma and Seattle, with four
             new round trips and longer trains and add permanent Sounder stations in Edmonds and
             Tukwila.




    Sound Transit’s Measures of Success
    •   High-quality projects completed on time and within budget.
    •   Services are well used and customer satisfaction is high.
    •   Checks and balances ensure accountability to the community.
    •   Staff, consultants, and contractors are accountable to the Sound Transit Board.
    •   Projects are developed with the help of meaningful community involvement and
        participation.
    •   Technical expertise is appropriate to implement the system, and a lean organization reflects
        the Sound Transit District’s values and diversity.
    •   Maximum local participation, including Minority/Women/Disadvantaged Business Enterprise
        firms, has been achieved in Sound Transit contracting.
    •   Projects include innovative design and operating features that benefit Sound Transit’s
        customers and will attract new riders.
    •   Partnerships are created that leverage Sound Transit’s investments and/or reduce project
        costs.
    •   Accessible transportation facilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    The Sound Transit District Boundary
    The Sound Transit District, shown on the next page, includes the most congested urban areas of
    King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. The Sound Transit District boundary lines generally follow
    the urban growth boundaries created by each county in accordance with the state Growth
    Management Act.
    Effective January 1, 1999, the Sound Transit Board approved the withdrawal of approximately
    half of the city of Covington from the Sound Transit District. Effective January 1, 2002, the
    Issaquah Highlands area of the city of Issaquah was annexed into the Sound Transit District. On
    June 13, 2002, the Sound Transit Board authorized changes to the existing agency’s narrative
    boundary description. The changes include the annexed Issaquah Highlands area and replace
    references to precinct boundaries and city limit lines with geographical landmarks or references
    based on the public land survey system.

    Sound Transit District Subareas
    The Sound Transit District is divided into five geographic subareas for planning and financial
    purposes. The system components in Sound Move address unique needs in each of these subareas.
    Local tax revenues and related debt for projects and services are utilized to benefit the subareas
    generally in proportion to the level of revenues each subarea generates.
    Snohomish County: The Snohomish County subarea of the Sound Transit District includes the
    cities of Brier, Edmonds, Everett, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and
    Woodway. In 2007, the Snohomish County subarea had an estimated population of 405,000
    residents, accounting for 59 percent of the Snohomish County population.
    North King County: The North King County subarea includes the cities of Seattle, Shoreline
    and Lake Forest Park. In 2007, the North King subarea had an estimated population of 654,000,
    accounting for 35 percent of King County’s entire population.
    South King County: The South King County subarea includes the cities of Algona, Auburn,
    Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, Kent, Normandy Park, Pacific, SeaTac and Tukwila. Since
    1990, this has been the fastest growing area of King County. In 2007, the South King subarea had
    an estimated population of 488,000 residents, 26 percent of King County’s population.
    East King County: The East King County subarea includes the cities of Beaux Arts, Bellevue,
    Bothell, Clyde Hill, Hunts Point, Issaquah, Kenmore, Kirkland, Medina, Mercer Island,
    Newcastle, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, Woodinville and Yarrow Point. In 2007, the East
    King County subarea had an estimated population of 500,000 residents, accounting for 27 percent
    of King County’s population.

    estimated population of 664,000 residents, accounting for 84 percent of the Pierce County
    population.


    Sound Transit Board of Directors
    Sound Transit is governed by an 18-member board made up of 17 elected officials and the
    Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) secretary. The local elected officials
    include mayors, city councilmembers, county executives and county councilmembers from within
    the Sound Transit District. Each county is represented by one boardmember per 145,000 people
    living within that county. Boardmembers from each county are appointed by their respective
    county executive and confirmed by their county council. The appointment process includes
    consultation with local cities and towns.
    By state law, appointments must include an elected city official representing the largest city in the
    participating county and proportional representation from other cities and unincorporated areas.
    To help assure coordination between local and regional transit plans, half the appointments in
    each county must be officials who serve on the local transit agency board.
    Sound Transit boardmembers elect the board officers, including a chair and two vice chairs, every
    two years. The chair presides over all board meetings and is also a voting member. Additional
    information on the Sound Transit Board—including its structure, meeting schedules and
    locations, standing committees and actions—can be accessed at the Sound Transit Web site at
    www.soundtransit.org.
    All board sessions are open to the public, and comments are invited.

    Management Organization

    Sound Transit’s management organization is designed to ensure achievement of the Agency’s
    strategic focus on project delivery, service delivery, system expansion, stewardship of resources
    and organizational vibrancy.

    In 2008 future challenges and opportunities, both external and internal, called for a strategic and
    comprehensive organizational review of how Sound Transit is structured and staffed to improve
    its ability to effectively deliver the mission—“Sound Transit plans, builds, and operates regional
    transit systems and services to improve mobility for Central Puget Sound.” Throughout the first
    half of 2008, the staff participated in key listening sessions to gather their input on the
    organization’s structure, strengths and gaps, guiding principles and other key inputs to the CEO
    for consideration. Based on employee input, industry review and a comprehensive review of the
    organization’s evolution and changing demands, the CEO is planning changes necessary to meet
    current and future needs; and to build on the foundation that emphasizes efficiency, effectiveness,
    quality, and customer service while meeting the needs of various constituencies.

    At the time that this document was published the results of the organizational review had not been
    finalized.

    Citizen Oversight Panel
    The Sound Transit Board’s commitment to public accountability is a significant theme in the
    policies that frame Sound Move. During the first quarter of 1997, the Sound Transit Board
    appointed members to the first Citizen Oversight Panel (COP). The provision for and
    commitment to a COP is contained in the agency’s adopted financial policies [“Public
    Accountability” (Sound Move financial policies, May 31, 1996, p. B7)]:
    “To insure that the 10-year construction program development and implementation occurs within
    the framework and intent of these policies, Sound Transit will:
        (a) conduct an annual comprehensive performance audit through independent audit services;
        (b) appoint and maintain for the 10-year construction period a COP, charged with an annual
            review of Sound Transit’s performance audit and financial plan, for reporting and
            recommendations to the Sound Transit Board.”
    Citizen Oversight Panel’s mission
    As an independent body, the COP reviews Sound Transit’s performance toward achieving its
    commitments to the public and provides recommendations regarding its performance. The COP’s
    responsibility is to provide the Sound Transit Board and the public with a regular report card.

    Reports on Sound Transit Performance
    The COP has delivered nineteen annual and semi-annual reports. In May 2005, the COP delivered
    a Sound Move Year 8 Review on Sound Transit’s performance in meeting its commitments to the
    public since the 1997 Midyear COP Report. In April 2007, the COP delivered a review of the ST2
    Draft Plan. On January 27, 2009 the COP delivered its 2008 Year End Report. All COP
    performance reports can be accessed on the Sound Transit Web site at
    http://www.soundtransit.org/x2199.xml


    Basis of Accounting
    Sound Transit maintains its accounts and prepares its financial statements using the economic
    resources measurement focus and accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting
    principles generally accepted in the United States of America and methods prescribed by the State
    Auditor. The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is the accepted standard-
    setting body for establishing governmental accounting and financial reporting principles. All
    applicable GASB pronouncements, as well as all Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB)
    statements and interpretations are applied, except for those FASB statements and interpretations
    that contradict GASB pronouncements.
    Information presented in the budget is presented in accordance with this basis of accounting. Tax
    revenues are reflected when the underlying transaction upon which the tax is imposed is expected
    to occur, operating revenues in the period for which services are provided and earned, and
    expenses in the period when incurred. Expenditures on capital outlays are capitalized as ‘capital
    assets’ when the costs have been incurred. The costs of these assets are then depreciated over the
    estimated useful life of the asset beginning when the asset has been put into use. Capital assets
    whose ownership is not retained by Sound Transit and transferred to another governmental entity
    pursuant to an interlocal agreement, are expensed as a ‘contribution to other governments’ upon
    completion.

    Financial Policies
    The Sound Transit Board (“the Board”) adopted an initial framework for the financing of Sound
    Move, by setting local tax rates, focusing on minimal debt financing, requiring conservative
    projections for federal and state funding, and establishing a definition by which equity will be
    measured. The Financial Policies reflect the Board's policy intent for implementing the financial
    framework for completing Sound Move and subsequent System Plans and for providing the tools
    to the Board to appropriately manage toward and respond to future conditions.
    These policies, adopted under Resolutions No. 72, 72-1, R2007-05 and R2008-10 provide:
    Equity: Equity will be defined as utilizing revenues for projects and services that provide
    transportation benefits to residents and businesses in each of the subareas generally in proportion
    to the level of revenues each subarea generates. The Financial Plan will provide projections for
    each of the five subareas, comprised of the subarea's projected share of local taxes, use of bonds,
    farebox proceeds, an assumption for federal funding and related expenditures. Sound Transit will
    establish a system that on an annual basis reports subarea revenues and expenditures. Subarea
    capital projects and transit services will be evaluated annually as a part of the Board’s
    consideration of an annual budget.
    System-wide expenditures: The Board shall fund such system-wide expenditures as necessary
    to maintain and plan for an integrated regional transit system consistent with voter-approved
    System Plans. Such system-wide expenditures shall include fare integration, research and
    technology programs, future phase planning and agency administration and other such
    expenditures as determined by the Board to be appropriate. Properties authorized for purchase by

    the Board to preserve required right-of-way will be funded as a system-wide cost until such time
    as the right-of-way is utilized by a subarea(s), at which time the cost will be allocated to the
    subarea(s) consistent with Board approved allocation.
    Conservative use of debt: Sound Transit is committed to placing limits on its use of long-term
    debt. These policies establish the conservative approach Sound Transit will use to calculate the
    cash flow available to service debt, set a debt service coverage ratio policy, and reserve a portion
    of Sound Transit’s debt financing capacity to provide a future potential funding source for
    unforeseen circumstances.
    Public accountability: Sound Transit has hired independent auditors and has appointed a Citizen
    Oversight Panel to monitor Sound Transit performance in carrying out its public commitments.
    Also, the state auditor and the Performance Audit committee provide additional oversight and
    accountability for the agency.
    System expansion or tax rollback: When the voter-approved capital projects in ST2 and Sound
    Move are completed, the Board will initiate steps to roll back the rate of sales tax collected by
    Sound Transit: to a level necessary to pay off the outstanding bonds, system operations and
    maintenance, fare integration, capital replacement, and ongoing system-wide costs and reserves.


    Financial Plan
    Sound Transit maintains a 25-year financial model that projects the total revenues and costs of
    Sound Move and Sound Transit 2 (ST2) on a consolidated basis. The model is used to verify the
    long-term financial viability of the program and confirm the maintenance of subarea equity.
    The financial model forecasts operating costs, capital outlays, revenues, bonding, debt service,
    and reserves from 1997 through 2040. The agency updates the Financial Plan each year with the
    latest grant and revenue and inflation forecasts, and capital and operating budget data. The plan is
    reviewed, but not adopted, by the board each year and is available to the public on request.

    How to Read the Budget
    Overall, the Adopted 2009 budget is organized into six main sections:
    Overview: This piece provides background on Sound Transit and its financial structure and a
    summary of the Adopted 2009 Budget.
    System Expansion: This section includes a detailed annual budget for projects relating to the
    vision for expanding the transit system and communicating that vision to the public.
    Service Delivery: This section provides detailed annual budgets for the operation of Sounder
    commuter rail, Tacoma Link light rail and Regional Express bus service and associated capital
    outlays.
    Project Delivery: This section includes an overview of the agency’s capital program for Link
    light rail, Sounder commuter rail and Regional Express projects. The section also includes a six-
    year capital plan with a detailed annual cash flow for each capital project. A risk assessment for
    each project identifies factors that could have budget and schedule implications.
    Agency Operations: This section details the 2009 staff operating budgets and 2009 performance
    management scorecards for each Sound Transit department. This section also includes budgets
    for capital expenditures and other operating costs, such as debt service, the costs of the Transit
    Oriented Development program, the STart Program and non-operating expenses.
    Appendix: This section includes further detailed information to provide the reader with
    additional background on the agency and the budget.

    Revenues and Financing Sources
    Retail sales and use tax
    In 2009, Sound Transit is anticipating to receive $278.7 million in Retail Sales and Use Tax
    revenue. Sound Transit collects 4/10 of one percent Retail Sales and Use Tax on transactions in
    the Sound Transit District. With the approval of ST2 by voters, Sound Transit will collect an
    additional five-tenths of one percent sales and use tax from April 1, 2009. The Retail Sales and
    Use Tax is imposed on the sale of most goods and certain services in the district. The tax is
    collected by businesses, which then remit the tax to the state. This tax is both a sales tax and a use
    tax, with the use tax collections amounting to about eight percent of the total taxes collected. The
    use tax is levied on items purchased out of state but used in state and on other items for which
    sales tax has not been paid. The tax is collected by the state Department of Revenue and remitted
    to Sound Transit through the Office of the State Treasurer.
    Motor Vehicle Excise Tax
    Sound Transit is expecting to receive $71.7 million in Motor Vehicle Excise Tax revenue for
    2009. Sound Transit collects 3/10 of one percent Motor Vehicle Excise Tax. The Motor Vehicle
    Excise Tax is a tax levied on the value of motor vehicles and collected at the time of vehicle
    licensing. The tax is collected by the state Department of Licensing and remitted to Sound Transit
    through the Office of the State Treasurer.
    Rental Car Tax
    Rental Car Tax revenues for 2009 are anticipated to be $2.7 million. Sound Transit collects 8/10
    of one percent Rental Car Tax, levied on the rental value of vehicles. The tax is collected by
    businesses and remitted to the state Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue
    disburses the proceeds to Sound Transit through the Office of the State Treasurer.
    Federal Grant Funding Program
    Grant Assumptions in 2009 Financial Plan: The Financial Plan assumes a total of $1.98 billion
    in grant awards for Sound Move projects through 2016. The $1.98 billion includes: $500 million
    for the Link Initial Segment, $825 million for University Link, $57 million for Airport Link, $433
    million for Sounder and Regional Express and $172 million of FTA formula funds assumed for
    preventative maintenance for all modes.
    For University Link, the $825 million grant assumption consists of $813 million of section 5309
    New Starts funds under a Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA), $9 million of Congestion
    Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ) funds and $3 million of Section 5309 Fixed Guideway funds.
    The CMAQ and section 5309 Fixed Guideway funds have already been secured for years 2008-
    2010. The University Link FFGA is assumed to receive annual appropriations between 2008
    through 2016, totaling $813 million.
    Federal funding will be secured through conventional Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and
    Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) programs currently authorized under the Safe,
    Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Efficiency Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-
    LU) and future authorizations. Funding will be secured through both congressional
    appropriations and regional/national grant competitions. Grant funding assumptions by source
    are shown in the following table.

    Results
    To date, Sound Transit has been awarded $1 billion, or 51 percent of the total projected federal
    funding. Funding has been secured through congressional appropriations and regional, state and
    national competitions. Funding has been secured across all funding sources and modes:
    •   $277 million for Sounder commuter rail rolling stock, track and signal work, railroad
        crossings, equipment, right-of-way and station construction.
    •   $590 million for Link Initial Segment, Airport Link. and University Link.
    •   $129 million for Regional Express rolling stock, transit centers, park-and-rides, and direct
        access ramps.
    •   $6 million for system wide improvements such as security improvements, signage and
        planning, Smart Card equipment, and the Remote Infrared Audible Signage project


    2009 Grant Award Projections: In 2009, Sound Transit is estimated to receive $162 million in
    grant awards. Of this amount, $129 million (80%) is the 2009 appropriation for University Link
    and the Initial Segment/Airport Link - consistent with the schedule of federal funds in the Full
    Funding Grant Agreements.


    2009 Grant Drawdown Projections: Grant drawdowns represent actual grant funds received
    from grant awards based on eligible expenditures occurring in the program. Generally, there is a
    time lag between the grant awards and the grant drawdowns, so the annual grant award estimate
    will not match the grant drawdown estimate. The time lag between the grant awards and the grant
    drawdowns varies in relation to when the FTA annual apportionments are published in the
    Federal Register, the time for FTA grant processing and when actual spending occurs on Sound
    Transit grant funded projects. In 2009, the budget for grant drawdowns is $127.0 million.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                              Page 19 of 312
    Farebox Revenues
    The Adopted 2009 Budget of $29.6 million includes approximately $15.6 million in farebox
    revenues from the ST Express bus service, $3.0 million for Central Link and $11.0 million from
    the Sounder commuter rail service. The Sounder fare structure was changed in June 2007 to be
    distance-based, whereby a distance based charge was added to a nominal base rate. The change
    yielded projected increases in revenues of approximately 10%. In projecting fare revenues over
    the long run, it is generally assumed that present transit fares continue with fare increases
    matching only inflation rates; the Adopted 2009 Budget does not assume any fare increases.
    The fare revenue forecast was built on the assumption of an average fare per boarding of $3.00
    for Sounder commuter rail service and $1.42 for ST Express bus service. An average fare per
    boarding of $1.00 was assumed for Central Link, pending the setting of an actual fare by the
    Sound Transit Board. Factors influencing the average fare per boarding include the base fare, the
    average number of zones traveled or distance traveled, the amount of institutional purchases of
    Puget Passes, and the amount of fare evasion.


    Interest Earnings
    In 2009, Sound Transit will earn an estimated $11.5 million in interest on its investments (on an
    accrual basis). The assumed 2009 effective interest rate on Sound Transit’s investments is 2.5%.
    On October 28, 2004, the Sound Transit Board adopted resolution R2004-14 that adopted an
    Asset Liability Management Framework to synchronize the management of the agency’s
    investments and debt on a consolidated basis. This policy superseded Resolution No. 97 and
    includes four distinct but coordinated policies: Asset Liability Management, Investment, Debt
    Management and Debt Swap.


    Miscellaneous Revenue
    The agency expects to receive a variety of miscellaneous revenue totaling $3.9 million in 2009.
    Primarily, these revenues include advertising on Sounder cars and Sound Transit buses along with
    rental income from Sound Transit properties. The agency will also receive some other
    miscellaneous payments and contributions from other government or private parties to Sound
    Transit. In the budget these revenues are reported on a consolidated basis for the agency.

    Adopted 2009 Budget Summary
    The Adopted 2009 Budget represents the thirteenth full year of Sound Transit’s Sound Move. It
    contains the agency’s 2009 operating and capital budgets, a Phase 1 capital spending plan, as well
    as a 6-year rolling forecast for Service Delivery. Sound Transit uses the January-to-December
    calendar year for its budget and fiscal year. The total budgeted operating and capital plan for
    fiscal year 2009 is $929.4 million.
    Sound Transit’s Adopted 2009 Budget is organized according to its strategic focus: System
    Expansion, Service Delivery, Project Delivery and Agency Operations. As detailed in the budget
    information above, each of these components has an annual operating expense, an annual capital
    expenditure, and a long-term capital plan. The following information summarizes the Adopted
    2009 Budget by total operating and total capital expenses, regardless of the program area in
    which it is contained.
    The agency maintains a lifetime capital plan, which records historic spending since 1997 and
    forecasts all capital outlays through 2016. Summaries of the agency’s capital budget are presented
    below and each individual project capital plan is presented in subsequent chapters of the Adopted
    2009 Budget. For Service Delivery, to reflect the fact that Sound Transit is now out of the start-up
    mode, the budget forecasts will no longer only report on a 1997-2009 basis but will also show a
    six-year rolling forecast of expenses for each mode. This treatment is more in line with other
    transit properties and provides a more accurate picture of ongoing operations.

    SERVICE DELIVERY
    The Transportation Services Department combines the planning, scheduling and operations for
    Sounder commuter rail, ST Express regional bus, and Central Link and Tacoma Link light rail.
    The department also includes customer service, facility maintenance, region wide signage and
    way-finding programs, and the Mobility Initiative Program.
    The Adopted 2009 Budget for Service Delivery is $212.0 million, of which $157.8 million is for
    expenses for operations and $54.2 million is for Service Delivery capital. Operational expenses
    are divided between the agency’s four modal services: $4.4 million for Tacoma Link operations,
    $22.9 million for Central Link operations, $38.0 million for Sounder operations, and $91.4
    million for ST Express operations, along with $1.2 million for Accessible Services, which
    supports all four modes of operations. The budget for operational expenses represents a $40.1
    million, or 34.1 % increase from the Adopted 2008 Budget. This increase reflects increased
    services for Sounder, ST Express and a half-year of Central Link operations. More information on
    transit operations budgets is provided in the Service Delivery section of the budget.

    Staff Operations: Sound Transit employs corporate staff—which administers its programs and
    services—and operations staff, which is directly involved in transit operations. The costs for
    corporate employees and associated expenses are captured within the agency’s staff budgets,
    which are detailed by the agency’s eight departments. The costs for operations employees are
    included in the Transportation Services budget and are addressed in the Service Delivery section.
    Sound Transit’s staff operating budget, including depreciation, increased from $60.7 million in
    the Adopted 2008 Budget to $65.4 million in the Adopted 2009 Budget. These costs include
    salaries and benefits for all agency non-operational employees, materials and supplies, utilities,
    insurance, depreciation, leases and rentals and other miscellaneous expenses.

                                   SYSTEM EXPANSION

    Program Summary
    Formerly known as “Transit Vision” this section of the agency budget has been renamed “System
    Expansion” in order to better articulate the agency’s priority for improving regional transit
    service by expanding and integrating the high capacity transit system. “System Expansion” is
    principally the responsibility of the Office of Policy, Planning and Public Affairs department
    (O3PA), which is made up of Office of Policy and Planning, Government and Community
    Relations, Media Relations and Public Information and Board Administration.

    O3PA is charged with working with the Sound Transit Board, the public, and partner jurisdictions
    to shape the agency’s priorities and policies for expanding and integrating the regional transit
    system. The department has led the agency’s effort to shape the Sound Transit 2 Plan that went
    before voters in November 2008, carrying out the technical work needed for the region’s
    communities and the Board to make decisions that deliver the greatest long-term benefits to
    region’s residents. O3PA maintains responsibility for informing and facilitating the participation
    of key stakeholders throughout the region and general public. O3PA maintains responsibility for
    government relations, community relations and media relations spanning all of the agencies
    activities, working with every department of the agency to provide the public with timely
    information and opportunities for involvement. O3PA facilitates the deliberations and actions of
    the Sound Transit Board and its committees, ensuring proceedings comply with state law and
    fulfill the Board’s commitment to operate in an open and transparent fashion.

    This section of the budget covers the operating expenses and capital expenditures for activity in
    2009 toward Sound Transit 2 and fare integration. Staff budgets for the Office of Policy,
    Planning, and Public Affairs are included in the Agency Operations section of the budget
    document.

    Sound Transit 2 – A Mass Transit Guide
    A healthy transit system is vital for the economy and quality of life in the region, particularly
    when faced with an estimated population increase of more than 40 percent by 2040. The core of
    the regional transit system Sound Move, approved by voters in 1996, is nearing completion.
    Sound Transit now carries more than 12 million riders annually. Sounder commuter trains run
    every weekday on 75 miles of track, and the system has seen some of the fastest ridership growth
    in the nation. ST Express buses connect population and employment centers throughout the
    region. Tacoma Link light rail trains are breaking ridership expectations. Construction is under
    way on the Central Link light rail system in Seattle and on transit centers and park-and-ride lots
    throughout King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties.

    Sound Move represents an important first step in building a regional system, but more work
    remains. Planning efforts culminated in updated ST2 Plan, adopted by the Sound Transit Board
    on July 24, 2008, to expand the regional system and approved by voters in November 2008.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                            Page 37 of 312
    Office of Policy and Planning (OPP)
    OPP provides agency and regional leadership in planning the regional High Capacity Transit
    (HCT) system; formulates public policy related to regional transit planning and system
    integration; coordinates regional transit fare policies and implementing regional fare technology
    and media; provides development review assistance to local jurisdictions to facilitate
    implementation of regional smart growth objectives; ensures Sound Transit’s needs are heard at
    the national level with respect to implementation of federal SAFETEA-LU mandates; and
    coordinated internal and external efforts for the update to the Sound Transit 2 plan. OPP was
    responsible for the planning that supported the Board’s update of the Long-Range Plan (July
    2005), and the technical planning and development of the Sound Transit 2 Plan. Both of these
    efforts build upon the achievements of Sound Move.

    In addition to its work on the update to Sound Transit 2, OPP also manages the Fare Integration
    Program, delivering the "seamless" system that was promised in Sound Move. While progress
    has been made in the near term to institute the PugetPass, OPP is working closely with Sound
    Transit’s regional partners to deliver a new system based on smart card technology which will
    allow customers to use the same card for fare payment for multiple transit services, including the
    Washington State Ferries, operated by various agencies. This future method of fare payment,
    scheduled to roll out prior to the opening of the Central Link light rail line, will make the system
    even more seamless for passengers; reduce cash transactions; and provide the basis for more
    accurate analysis of transit market patterns in the region.

    OPP also develops agency-wide policies and coordinates regional transportation planning efforts
    for Sound Transit. In addition to these specific responsibilities, it is responsible for addressing
    issues affecting all lines of business and coordinating transit reporting to the state and federal
    governments. OPP also supports the Sound Transit Board in its role of policy setting and long-
    range planning by developing alternative courses of action for its consideration that are realistic,
    timely, clear, and balanced. It works to develop internal policies that are consistent across all
    departments. It coordinates agency work with the Puget Sound Regional Council.

    Office of Policy and Planning Budget
    The Adopted 2009 Budget contains $15.0 million in operating expenses and $13.6 million in
    capital expenditures for activity in 2009 toward Sound Transit 2 and fare integration. The
    Adopted lifetime budget for the two projects is $82.8 million in operating expenses, and $20.9
    million in capital expenditures. Staff budgets for the Office of Policy, Planning and Public
    Affairs are included in the Agency Operations section of the budget document.

    Phase 2 Planning
    The High Capacity Transit (HCT) Phase 2 Planning Program has proceeded with building on the
    updated Long-Range Plan to develop a second phase High Capacity Transit implementation plan
    known as “ST2”. Conceptual study, planning and detailed evaluation of potential ST2 projects,
    including ridership forecasting and conceptual cost estimating for a broad range of high capacity
    transit corridors, segments, alignments, projects and supporting projects and programs, continued
    throughout 2008.
    Sound Transit’s East Link light rail project is one element of the Sound Transit Long-Range Plan,
    as updated in 2005. Funding is included in the adopted Mass Transit Expansion Plan for East
    Link to expand light rail from downtown Seattle to the Eastside with nine planned stations
    serving Mercer Island, south Bellevue, downtown Bellevue, Bel-Red and the Overlake
    neighborhood of Redmond. Conceptual engineering for the project is complete and the Draft
    Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) has been completed. The adopted 2009 operating
    budget will carry the project through the DEIS comment period and Board identification of a
    locally preferred alignment alternative for the project. The 2009 capital budget of $5.0 million
    for East Link will enable preliminary engineering to begin in the spring of 2009. The
    comprehensive budget amendment to be brought to the Board later this year will propose
    additional budget to complete East Link preliminary engineering and the Final Environmental
    Impact Statement.
    Budget Changes for Phase 2 Planning
    The lifetime operating budget of $33.2 million for Phase 2 Planning and $23 million for East
    Link are unchanged from the 2008 adopted budget. A new capital project for East Link has been
    added and has a 2009 budget and a lifetime budget of $5 million. This project will be further
    developed in the 2010 budget. The adopted operating budget for activity in 2009 is $8.2 million
    for Phase 2 Planning and $5.3 million for East Link.
    Fare Integration
    The Fare Integration program is responsible for promoting regional mobility through a system of
    seamless regional fare media and policies. The keystone of the program is the Regional Fare and
    Pass Reconciliation Agreement, which forms the basis for regional account reconciliation and the
    PugetPass (the regional transit pass program). The agreement allows all five of the region’s
    transit agencies to pool pass revenue into one account. It allows passes and cash transfers to be
    valid on all transit systems, regardless of purchase location, while insuring that agencies are
    compensated for the boardings provided. The basis for revenue reconciliation is research data,
    which is updated periodically based on on-board survey research conducted by Sound Transit.
    Fare Integration also oversees institutional passes such as FlexPass and U-Pass and negotiates
    pricing with Sound Transit’s partners and customers. PugetPasses and institutional passes, and a
    significant portion of cash fare payments will soon be replaced with “smart cards,” an electronic
    fare payment system which will allow for more accurate and timely data, faster boardings, and a
    simpler reconciliation process. Full system implementation is targeted for late 2009.
    Budget Changes for Fare Integration
    The total combined lifetime (1997-2011) operating and capital budget of $42.5 million for Fare
    Integration is unchanged from the Adopted 2008 Budget. The capital budget is $15.9 million and
    the operating budget is $26.7 million.
    The Adopted 2009 annual operating budget of $1.5 million and capital budget of $8.6 million is
    for continued work on fare integration. Since the 2007 budget was established, smart card project
    milestone delays have deferred the majority of project expenses by one fiscal year. The 2009
    budget increases the funding allocated for ticket vending machine expansion in 2009 and
    subsequent years once integration with the smart card system occurs. This integration increases
    the flexibility and potential regional uses for self-service smart card vending purposes.

Project                                405      Fare Integration

Description
The purpose of the Fare Integration Program is to develop a uniform, single-ticket fare system and integrated fare policy for the region's
entire public transit service network. Currently, the Puget Pass program provides a means for transit riders to use a single piece of fare
media to ride all transit services in the three-county region. Puget Pass was embraced by regional transit agencies as a significant
commitment to the one-ticket ride concept and was seen as an interim step toward implementation of Smart Card technology.

Smart card is a cooperative effort of 7 different agencies providing public transportation, including Sound Transit, Community Transit,
Everett Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit and Washington State Ferries. This new electronic fare system will
allow riders and employers providing transit benefits to reload passes and stored value on to reusable fare cards, eliminating the need for
monthly paper pass purchases. The smart card system will benefit transit agencies by speeding boardings and automatically tracking and
distributing fare revenue among participants. In 2009, ST's Fare Integration Program and representatives from the other agencies will
complete implementation and roll out of a seamless fare payment system among the 7 agencies.

Project                                 600       East Link

Description
Scope: Construct an East Link project from downtown Seattle to downtown Bellevue, and Overlake Hospital via I-90. East Link would
connect to Central Link at the International District Station in Seattle and provide stations on I-90 at Rainier Avenue and Mercer Island. In
Bellevue, this segment of East Link would have three to four stations which would serve a regional park-and-ride, downtown Bellevue, and
Overlake Hospital. Continue the East Link project from east of downtown Bellevue to the Overlake Transit Center with a connection to a
light rail vehicle maintenance facility. This segment of East Link would have three stations which would serve the Bellevue-Redmond
Road corridor, the Overlake Station neighborhood, and the Overlake Transit Center. Complete environmental reviews and preliminary
engineering for extending light rail from Overlake Transit Center to Redmond Terminal Station.
The alignment and station locations will be determined through project level design and environmental review. Cost estimates for both
aerial and underground alignments in downtown Bellevue are presented here.
Changes since 2008: New capital project for the early implementation of East Link with an Adopted 2009 budget of $5M.

                                  SERVICE DELIVERY
    PROGRAM SUMMARY
    Sound Transit’s Service Delivery program consists of the operations of the ST Express bus,
    Sounder commuter rail and Tacoma Link light rail systems. A major accomplishment for 2009
    will be the addition of Central Link’s 14 mile light rail service to Sound Transit’s transportation
    mix. ST Express operates 19 regional bus routes, Sounder North line offers four daily roundtrips
    between Everett and Seattle; as of September 2008 Sounder South line runs eight daily round
    trips between Tacoma and Seattle with two reverse commutes; and Tacoma Link provides service
    in the downtown Tacoma area.
    In 2009 Sound Transit will provide over 836,000 service hours to the region’s transportation
    choices, up about 29% over 2008. The 2009 ridership target is 20.3 million total boardings and
    average weekday boardings of about 79,000. Sound Transit also provides more than 40 commuter
    and light rail stations, transit centers and park-and-ride lots creating essential regional
    transportation connections and delivering high quality customer amenities and service. With
    Central Link and a dozen new light rail stations coming on line in July 2009, this amounts to a
    21% growth in service hours and a 30% growth in facilities maintained by ST.
    Ridership has grown steadily over the past few years, with a marked up-tick in 2008 due to high
    gas prices. Parking at regional park-and-ride lots is at or over capacity, especially at Sounder
    stations. In 2009 the agency will direct an even greater focus on initiatives to address system
    access and parking management.
    Since the inception of Sound Transit in 1997, the agency has played a key role in regional
    coordination activities including service planning, fare policy, accessibility initiatives and
    customer service delivery. This is accomplished though the regional Transit Integration Group
    (TIG), with participation from six other public transit entities.


    2009 Highlights
    The Transportation Services Department’s mission is to provide safe, reliable, user-friendly, and
    cost-effective bus and rail services to our customers. The following are other activity and
    initiative highlights for 2009:

    Tacoma Link Operations

    Service Description
    Tacoma Link is a 1.6-mile light rail passenger system that runs through the heart of downtown
    Tacoma. From the Tacoma Dome Station on South 25th Street to the Theater District on
    Commerce Street, there are five unique stations complete with artwork that reflect the history and
    community of Tacoma. Two trains operate Monday through Friday with one train at 5:20 a.m.
    and a second train at 7:00 a.m. A two train operation continues until 8:10 p.m. when one train is
    removed and the remaining train continues to operate until 10:20 p.m. On Saturday two trains
    provide service from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and on Sunday Tacoma Link runs a one train
    operation from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A third train is available as a spare when maintenance is
    required. All vehicles, services and facilities are ADA compliant.
    Since Tacoma Link service began in August 2003, the average ridership has exceeded the
    projection of 2,000 passengers per weekday in 2010. Ridership now averages about 3,000 per
    weekday. In 2009, more than 9,500 service hours will be delivered. The 2009 target for ridership
    is 855,000 total boardings and 2,851 per weekday. Additional service and performance data is
    provided in Appendix C.


    Operations Overview
    Sound Transit operates Tacoma Link Light Rail out of the Operations and Maintenance (O&M)
    facility in Tacoma. Staffing plan currently consists of 18 employees, including one manager, one
    assistant manager, three operations supervisors, one operations lead, seven full-time light rail
    vehicle operators, three system technicians and one support staff. After an internal reorganization
    in early 2008, an assistant director position was added to Tacoma Link.
    The fleet consists of three single-car trains. Staff performs routine maintenance work eleven
    hours per day, seven days per week out of the maintenance workshops located at the Tacoma
    facility. Maintenance work for traction power, track work, signals, landscaping and janitorial
    work is primarily contracted out.

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget
    For 2009, Tacoma Link has added one Operations and Maintenance Supervisor to bring the total
    FTEs to 19. The addition of this supervisor would enable Tacoma Link to perform maintenance
    and repairs on the way, power, and signals that previously had been done by vendors.
    The total transit operations budget increases from $3.8 million in 2008 to $4.4 million in 2009
    (excluding depreciation). The addition of the O&M Supervisor described above resulted in a net
    increase in salaries and wages, but is offset in reduced contract services costs. In addition, wage
    costs are higher after evaluating current negotiations with Link Operators. As the vehicles
    continue to age, maintenance costs are likely to increase, and materials and supplies increases
    reflect the purchase of additional parts to keep the vehicles in operation. Agency allocations are
    higher as more central resources are focused on support of transit operations.

    Central Link Operations

    Service Description
    In November, 2003, Sound Transit broke ground on the Initial Segment of Central Link light rail.
    This 13.9 mile segment begins at Westlake Station in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel
    (DSTT) and ends at the Tukwila/International Boulevard Station, next to SR-518 and just north of
    Sea-Tac Airport. In addition to downtown Seattle and Tukwila, the Initial Segment serves
    Seattle’s SODO industrial area, Beacon Hill and the Rainier Valley.
    Light rail trains are scheduled to begin providing service on the Initial Segment in July 2009,
    providing a 30-minute ride between Tukwila and downtown Seattle. Trains will leave
    approximately every six or seven minutes during peak periods, and every 10-15 minutes during
    midday and evening hours. By 2020, the Link Initial Segment is projected to carry more than
    42,500 passengers each day.
    In December 2004, Sound Transit and the Port of Seattle reached an agreement to extend Link
    light rail to Sea-Tac Airport. Service on the 1.7 mile segment to the airport is scheduled to begin
    in December 2009. In the months between the opening of the Initial Segment and the opening of
    the airport extension, a shuttle bus will transport passengers from Tukwila International Blvd.
    Station to SeaTac/Airport Station, just minutes away.
    Additional service and performance data is provided in Appendix C.
    Operations Overview
    The operations will be supported in the Link Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF) capable
    of supporting a 104 vehicle fleet at full build out. The OMF is located in south Seattle adjacent to
    the mainline, and south of Forest Street South and west of Airport Way.
    The light rail vehicles (LRVs) are manufactured by Kinkisharyo of Japan and are 95 feet in length
    and double articulated with a three-truck configuration. The floor of the LRV will be at platform
    height, 14 inches from the top of the rail at all 4 door entries. Trains can be coupled to run in one
    to four vehicles in length. Initially, the system will start in a two car configuration. LRVs will be
    powered by an overhead contact wire energized at 1500 volts dc, and propelled with ac motors.
    Each vehicle will seat 74 passengers and will have room for 74 standees and are designed to meet
    all current ADA standards.
    Link will share the DSTT with hybrid diesel/electric buses operated by King County Metro. This
    shared use of the tunnel will continue until such time that increases in Link service and frequency
    requires exclusive use of the DSTT by light rail operations only. Operations of the tunnel will be
    controlled by King County staff at the Operations Control Center south of the tunnel entrance.
    Operations and Maintenance of the Central Link system will be performed under contract by
    King County Metro as governed by an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with King County.
    Sound Transit, as owner, will have fiscal and performance oversight for this contract. In addition,
    Sound Transit will directly contract for cost elements such as traction power, parts, insurance, and
    most elements of facilities maintenance.
    The IGA defines performance and maintenance standards and requirements for the operator and
    maintainer. By agreement with King County Metro, there will be 145 full time employees
    supporting Link operations and maintenance, including 56 operators.

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget
    This is the first year that a detailed transit operations budget has been presented for the Central
    Link program. With the onset of operations in July 2009, one half year of 3 FTEs (1.5 FTE) for
    ST management will be included in operations. In addition, a portion of the ticket vending
    machine maintenance staff will be charged to operations. This total of 7.5 FTEs will be shared
    with Sounder transit operations in proportion to the work performed.

    Sounder Commuter Rail Operations
    Service Description
    Sounder commuter rail saw phenomenal ridership growth in 2008. By the end of 2008, Sounder
    added a fourth round to trip to the North line from Everett to Seattle – and two more round trips
    and one more reverse trip to the South line, bringing the total trips between Tacoma and Seattle to
    eight with two reverse commutes. In 2009 a ninth round trip will be added to the South Line.
    With the commencement of service in September 2000, Sounder was the first commuter rail
    service to operate in the Puget Sound region in over 60 years. Service began in the south corridor
    with a commuter route from Tacoma to Seattle and expanded to another route from the north –
    Everett to Seattle – three years later. Sounder has welcomed more than 10 million riders since the
    inception of service.
    Service runs Monday through Friday, except major holidays. Travel times between Tacoma and
    Seattle and between Everett and Seattle are both roughly 60 minutes. Event service for Mariners
    and Seahawks games as well as major concerts at the Tacoma Dome is also provided.
    There are thirteen Sounder commuter rail stations in operation. Like Link stations, all are unique
    and feature artwork reflective of the area. All have bus transportation connections located directly
    at the station. Bus service schedules and, on the North Line, ferry schedules, are typically
    synchronized to the train schedule. Access to Sounder commuter rail for people who use
    wheelchairs or other mobility aids is provided to one car per train by the use of a mini-high
    platform and bridge plate. All service, vehicles and facilities are ADA compliant.
    South line ridership now averages about 9,000 boardings per day; North line ridership averages
    more than 1,200 boardings per day. In 2009, more than 35,000 vehicle hours will be delivered, up
    25% over 2008. The 2009 target for ridership is 3.1 million boardings. Additional service and
    performance measure data is provided in Appendix C.
    Operations Overview
    Train operation is contracted to the BNSF Railway (BNSF) and fleet maintenance is contracted to
    Amtrak. Sound Transit oversees and manages these contracts. Sound Transit also manages
    contracts for Sounder’s insurance, safety and security and station maintenance. BNSF provides
    train crews, including conductors and engineers, dispatching and most of the track maintenance.
    The service is managed by the Transportation Services Department and BNSF supervisors, who
    are co-located at Sound Transit offices. Sound Transit staff consists of the program manager, one
    operation and maintenance project manager, a vehicle compliance officer and one support staff.
    Sounder operates on BNSF right-of-way and shares the 75 miles of track between Tacoma and
    Everett with BNSF freight trains and Amtrak passenger trains. The final 1.3 miles in Tacoma is
    operated on right-of way owned by the City of Tacoma, used by the Tacoma Rail Mountain
    Division. Sounder’s fleet consists of 11 locomotives, 18 cab cars and 40 coaches. Amtrak is
    responsible for heavy and light maintenance, inspections, and all cleaning.
    Surplus fleet due to service implementation delays are leased to MetroLink in Los Angeles and
    provide revenue to the agency. As Sound Transit is close to implementing its full service plan,
    this fleet will be recalled from the other properties. All equipment is expected to be back in
    Seattle by the end of 2009.

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Sounder Commuter Rail Budget
    The total transit operations budget increases from $32.3 million in 2008 to $38.0 million in 2009.
    The largest driver of this increase in the budget is the 26% increase in trips that will be offered in
    2009. The primary contracts for Sounder, with BNSF for train operations and with Amtrak for
    vehicle maintenance, both allow for economies of scale with respect to expanding operations.
    Thus, increases in service will be met with commensurate increases in operations and
    maintenance costs as the final planned service is in full operation. Additionally, other costs such
    as insurance, station maintenance, marketing and ticket vending machines are not directly
    impacted by the increase in service, further improving the unit costs with the expanded service.
    Beginning in 2009, Sound Transit will begin transitioning to perform maintenance of the ticket
    vending machine system using in-house staff, rather than exclusively through a contract with an
    outside vendor. A staff of seven FTEs plus a division manager will be on hand by the end of 2009
    to perform the maintenance of the machines for both Sounder and Central Link. Costs will be
    apportioned to Sounder and Link in proportion to the expected workload and will show up as
    salaries. There is a corresponding decrease in contracted service. 2009 will be a start-up year, so
    there may be some overlap as the existing contract is completed and work is shifted to the in-
    house staff.

    ST Express Bus Operations

    Service Description
    The ST Express bus system operates fast, frequent, two-way service connecting the major urban
    centers of Snohomish, King and Pierce counties. There are a total of 19 ST Express bus routes
    which provide links to local transit networks, other ST Express buses, commuter rail, light rail,
    ferries, Amtrak, and the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. With the startup of new Route 577
    between Federal Way and Seattle in February 2006, all of the express bus routes planned in
    Sound Move have been implemented.
    Sound Transit also provides many facilities and customer amenities such as transit centers, park-
    and-ride lots, and multi-modal stations. With completion of capital projects such as HOV lanes,
    new freeway stations and park-and ride facilities, most routes will operate 7 days per week, 18
    hours per day and achieve the service levels outlined in Sound Move. All service, vehicles, and
    facilities are ADA compliant.
    Approximately 656,000 service hours will be delivered in 2009, about an 8% increase over 2008.
    Weekday ridership now averages more than 43,000 passenger boardings. The target for 2009 total
    ridership is 13.3 million boardings and nearly 45,000 per weekday. Additional service and
    performance data is provided in Appendix C.
    Operations Overview
    Operation of ST Express bus service is provided via contracts with Community Transit, King
    County Metro Transit, and Pierce Transit. Community Transit operates four routes through a
    private operator, First Transit. King County Metro operates eight routes and Pierce Transit
    operates seven routes. In 2009, King County Metro will operate approximately 54% of ST
    Express bus service, Pierce Transit will operate 27% and Community Transit, 19%. By the end
    of 2009 the fleet will total 240 buses, 40% of which are emission-friendly compressed natural gas
    or hybrid diesel-electric buses. At the end of 2009, the ST Express fleet will have reached the
    maximum number of buses that are contemplated in the Service Implementation Plan.
    The Sound Transit ST Express bus division oversees and manages the service contracts. There are
    two full-time ST Express Division employees on staff: the division project manager and one
    support staff. The key functions are the oversight of the daily operations of Sound Transit bus
    routes and routine vehicle maintenance to keep the fleet in top operating condition, together with
    planning for fleet replacement and additions. Overall, the scope of services provided by the
    partner agencies includes operations, vehicle maintenance, security on buses, emergency service
    response, customer services, some route planning and scheduling, facilities maintenance for
    operating bases, and labor negotiations.
    Service costs are reviewed, negotiated, and reconciled on an annual basis as defined in the service
    agreements. This process requires the transit partners to submit a three-year baseline cost estimate
    for Sound Transit’s review and approval, usually in late October. By the end of November, the
    cost for the upcoming year is negotiated and agreed to by the parties and cost estimates for
    subsequent years are updated. The current service agreements are for a five-year term ending
    December 31, 2009.
    Adopted 2009 Budget—ST Express Bus Program
    The Adopted 2009 Budget includes purchased transportation costs to operate ST Express bus
    service, marketing, maintenance of the vehicles and facilities, signage and accessibility
    investments, and a continuation of the Spot Improvement program, which partners with other
    jurisdictions to make targeted improvements to transit facilities in the region. The ST Express bus

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget—ST Express Bus
    The budget for fully-allocated transit operations, including the allocated administrative costs and
    contingency, increased from $80.3 million in 2008 to $91.4 million in the Adopted 2009 Budget,
    an increase of $11.1 million. Purchased transportation, which is the largest single element of the
    ST Express bus budget, is budgeted to increase by a total of $11.9 million. This is due in part to
    increases in service, but also due to higher wages and benefit rates and rising fuel costs. In
    addition, ST Express will be providing shuttle service between Tacoma and Lakewood Station
    until Sounder service is up and running in that corridor.
    Increases are projected in security, driven mainly by the increasing number of ST facilities, and in
    other facilities maintenance costs. For the first six months of 2009, ST Express will bear the full
    ST share of facilities maintenance and debt service costs associated with the DSTT, which re-
    opened to buses in September 2008. Beginning in July 2009, these ST costs will be shared with
    Central Link light rail, in proportion to the amount of service that will be operated by Sound
    Transit in the tunnel.

            2 Sound Transit share of the DSTT facilities maintenance and debt service are 100% covered by ST Express in 2008, as the tunnel opens in
             September 2007 for bus service but will not carry light rail service until 2009. At that point, the ST Express share of tunnel costs will be 14%.

            3 The Mobility Initative Program was reported as a part of ST Express operations until the 2006 budget year, when it became a standalone
             program.

    Accessible Services
    In 1999 it was determined that Sound Transit did not have a complementary paratransit
    responsibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for ST Express bus or Sounder
    commuter rail service. However, a main tenet for Sound Transit is to improve mobility for all
    people in the Central Puget Sound region. To meet this objective the Mobility Initiative Program
    (MIP) was created by the Sound Transit board with the adoption of the 2001 Service
    Implementation Plan. In 2008, the MIP was renamed Accessible Services to better reflect the full
    scope of activities being performed and to use terminology more in line with other transit
    properties. There are currently two Sound Transit staff dedicated to the implementation of this
    program.


    Accessible Services contains programs in five general areas:
    •   Communications and Information: The development, production, and distribution of a
        FindARide.org and public information in Braille and other alternate forms of transit
        information.
    •   Accessibility Training: To provide experiential sensitivity training to Sound Transit staff,
        contractors, and partner agencies and travel training for seniors and people with disabilities.
    •   Facility and Equipment Improvements: To ensure Sound Transit services and facilities are
        compliant with ADA Accessibility Design Guidelines and state and local guidelines. Also to
        fund and manage improvements at existing facilities.
    •   Accessibility Research: To fund research and demonstration projects in ways to make Sound
        Transit services and facilities more accessible.
    •   Special Needs Transportation: To implement the Regional Special Needs Transportation
        Coordination Plan (RSNTCP), which was adopted by the ST Board and the Puget Sound
        Regional Council in 2006, support FindARide.org, and to fund special needs transportation
        coalitions in Pierce, King and Snohomish counties.

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget—Accessible Services
    The budget for Accessible Services, including the allocated administrative costs and contingency,
    stayed flat at $1.2 million in the Adopted 2009 Budget, a change of less than $0.1 million from
    2008. Implementation of the RSNTCP, which was adopted by the Sound Transit Board late in
    2006, continues and projects identified for 2009 include establishing a Bus Buddy program to
    match volunteers with people who could ride the fixed route bus system with assistance, and
    providing funding for staffed inter-regional paratransit transfer sites within the ST service area.
    Beginning with the opening of Central Link light rail in July 2009, Accessible Services costs will
    also now be apportioned to the North King County subarea in proportion to the amount of service
    supported by the program in that subarea.

    TRANSPORTATION SERVICES CAPITAL BUDGET
    The Transportation Services capital budget includes the capital purchases for fleet vehicles and
    capital projects associated with assets already placed into service.
    There are now several major capital maintenance needs that have been identified in the upcoming
    five-year planning cycle. One project is to begin replacing the aging ST Express bus fleet. Other
    projects include major maintenance programs on Sounder locomotives and coaches, and support
    for maintenance projects at the Tacoma Dome Station garage which have been previously
    committed to. In addition, participation in upgrading all ST Express partner agency mobile
    communications systems is programmed over the next few years. The Adopted 2009 Budget also
    contains a Small Works capital program to provide funding for small capital projects under
    $100,000. This program, which was started in 2006, enables Sound Transit to address those needs
    expected to arise as operations continue to expand and facilities age. Finally, other on-going
    programs include CCTV and passenger information systems projects for Sounder stations, and
    the acquisition and installation of ticket vending machines (TVMs) for Sound Transit rail
    locations.
    The Adopted 2009 Budget for Service Delivery capital is $54.2 million. The adopted 2009 rolling
    six-year forecast (2009-2014) for the capital program is $159.1 million.

    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget—Transportation Services Capital
    Program
    One new project has been added to the Service Delivery capital budget for 2009:
    Sounder Maintenance Facility: In preparation for a growing Sounder fleet and to ensure the
    optimal market rate for vehicle maintenance, a new maintenance facility is being developed.
    Funding included in the 2009 budget would provide for project definition and scoping and enable
    a consensus on the best option to meet Sounder vehicle maintenance needs in the future.
    Although this project was originally included in Sound Move, it was reprogrammed into the
    system-wide projects for immediate needs while a partnership with Amtrak made such an initial
    investment unnecessary.
    Additional details about the capital program are available on the following pages.

Project                               212      Ticket Vending Machines

Description
Scope: 40 Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) have been purchased and 28 have been installed to date at the 12 Sounder stations. The
TVMs are dispersed across the system on the basis of projected ridership. TVMs sell tickets and passes via an interactive touch screen or
through the use of a keypad, and where possible are located near the mini-high platforms for the convenience of persons with disabilities.
The remaining scope of work is a 2008 project to bring the TVMs up to Link and SmartCard standards as well as the remaining
installations that are to be performed at Everett, Mukilteo, Edmonds, Tukwila, South Tacoma, and Lakewood. The cost of the installations
is approximately $10k per machine.

Project                              216       Passenger Information System/CCTV

Description
Scope: Sounder is implementing a CCTV and Passenger Information System at all rail stations. The system includes communications for
a number of CCTV cameras at each station, audible rail announcements, variable message signs, customer emergency stations, and on-
board automated vehicle location. There will be a central control and monitoring system. Completion of the project is dependent upon the
schedule for completion of the Lakewood Corridor track and signal improvements, which are now scheduled to be complete in 2012.

In the 2008 Budget $150,000 was added to the project budget to reflect a funding agreement with the City of Lakewood for certain scope
items added at the behest of the City.

Project                               261       Bus Maintenance Facility

Description
The bus maintenance facility budget contains funds for expansion of ST's fleet maintenance capacity.

A project scope has been negotiated with Pierce Transit to accommodate the ST Express fleet needs. The budget for this part of the Bus
Maintenance Facility is $4,700,000. This is a capped contribution amount with a series of payments tied to completed project milestones.
The project cashflow for 2009 relates to payments scheduled in the agreement.

Funding for future maintenance capacity projects has been moved to 2011. As near-term maintenance capacity investments may be
identified, funding may be re-programmed to earlier years.

Changes since 2008 Budget: There were two budget amendments to the 2009 budget, reflected in Resolution R2008-14, Amendment 3.
The first transferred $3,000,000 from project #290, the ST Express Fleet Program to this project budget. The second transferred $250,000
from the ST Express Mobile Communications project to this project budget. Both amendments impacted the Snohomish County subarea
only.

Project                               290       ST Express Fleet Program

Description
The budget for vehicles reflects capital costs for the acquisition and start-up of new ST Express buses. Buses are purchased by Sound
Transit and then operated and maintained by the partner agencies. Sound Transit funds the acquisition costs of the fleet as well as major
maintenance programs through the ST Express Fleet Program.

After the final procurements in 2008, the total ST Express fleet will number 240 buses.

The remaining project budget would fund major maintenance programs and/or expansion of the ST Express fleet to meet ridership
demand.

Changes Since the 2008 Budget: A 2009 Budget Amendment (Resolution R2008-14, Amendment 3) reduced this project budget by
$3,000,000 and transferred the funding to the Bus Maintenance Facility project (#261). This amendment impacted the Snohomish County
subarea only.

Project                               701       ST Express Fleet Replacement Program

Description
This project details the necessary bus replacement program for the ST Express fleet. This program is separate from the original bus
procurement project (#290), which funds the original acquisition of the ST Express fleet.

Current assumptions include:
Budgets have been added in 2011 to reflect the first replacement of approximately 100 buses that were acquired in 1999. The specific
timing and fleet mix of these acquisitions will be further defined in future Service Implementation Plans.

Acquisition of the replacement fleet would only occur upon approval by the Sound Transit Board. Note that the budget listed in this project
covers just the planning horizon through 2016. Additional replacement purchases will need to be included in future budgets and will be
funded through the Capital Replacement Fund.

Changes since 2008 Budget: Added the years 2013 - 2016 to the replacement plan.

Project                               702        Sounder Fleet Program

Description
This project was created in 2005 to cover major capital replacement cycles and spare parts acquisitions for the Sounder locomotives and
coaches. These funds will be set aside to pay for future capital projects for Sounder vehicles, including major component acquisitions,
such as auxiliary power units and turbochargers.

The planning horizon for this project covers the period through 2013. There will be future needs for capital replacement which will occur
outside this planning horizon. These needs are funded through the Capital Replacement Fund.

Project                               740       Small Works Program

Description
This budget was created in the 2006 budget to fund the projected costs of capital improvements to be performed at sites throughout the
service area.

The budget is based on number of sites maintained, age of facilities and amount of use.

Individual projects with a project cost not exceeding $100,000 are charged to the Small Works project. Once the project cost exceeds
$100,000 it must be specifically identified as a separate project in the capital plan.

Changes since the 2008 Budget: The planning horizon has been extended to 2016. Historical planning costs from 2007 were transferred to
project #746, Regional Mobility Parking Enhancements, once that project was approved by the Board for 2008.

Project                                744        Talking Signs

Description
This project was created in late 2006 to receive federal funds to implement improvements to transit accessibility throughout the region in
the form of "talking signs". The local match is approximately $400,000.

The Talking Signs project utilizes Remote Intrafred Audible Signage (RIAS) technology to provide way-finding and information to people
who have visual, cognitive, or learning disabilities. The plan calls for installation of this technology at nine regional, multimodal transit
facilities. RIAS is a system of infrared transmitters and receivers installed on features such as elevators, stairs and ticket vending
machines. The receivers pick up voice messages from the transmitters and then guide the users through the envrironment.

Improvements will be spread throughout the region and funds are programmed in accordance with the three-year implementation plan.
Work to be completed through the end of 2009 includes installation at Everett Station, Tacoma Dome Station, King Street Station,
Overlake Transit Center, Bellevue Transit Center and Lynnwood Transit Center.

Project                                746        Regional Mobility Parking Enhancements

Description
In 2007 Sound Transit received a Regional Mobility grant in the amount of $3.7 million to expand commuter rail parking in the Tacoma-
Seattle Corridor. The local match for this grant is $500k. The funding will be used to expand capacity at Sumner and/or Puyallup Stations.
The specific parcels are still being selected for acquisition. Upon acquisition, the parcels will be cleared and converted to use for parking.
Up to 285 parking stalls would be added to the inventory available for Sounder customers.

Changes since the 2008 Budget: A 2009 budget amendment (Resolution R2008-14, Amendment 4) added $772,000 to the project budget
to reflect a grant that was received by the City of Puyallup and which will be administered by Sound Transit as part of this project. There
was a corresponding increase to the grant revenues assumed in the finance plan and added to the revenue budget..

                                 PROJECT DELIVERY
    PROGRAM SUMMARY
    The Link light rail, Sounder commuter rail, and Regional Express programs each have a 1997-
    2016 capital spending plan, including a project-by-project listing of capital outlays. These plans
    include the costs for building the initial Phase 1 Sound Move projects, plus any changes to Sound
    Move adopted by the board. A map illustrating these capital projects is included in each
    department’s budget summary. Capital programs managed by corporate departments are listed
    with the managing department under the Agency Operations tab.
    Baseline Budgets
    In accordance with adopted agency budget policies, each capital project is assigned a baseline
    budget as adopted by the board. This budget reflects the cost estimate for a project when:
    1) Preliminary Engineering has reached 30 percent, 2) key third party requirements are finalized,
    3) right-of-way plans are established, 4) Record of Decision (ROD)/Finding of No Significant
    Impact (FONSI) has been issued, and 5) a single well-defined scope is to be advanced into final
    design. The individual capital budget pages reflect baseline budgets for those projects that have
    met the established baseline criteria.
    Risk Assessments
    The Adopted 2009 Budget also contains risk assessments for active capital projects. These
    assessments identify project risk factors that have potential scope, budget, and schedule
    implications. In some cases, a great deal is known about the project scope, location and
    community expectations, and the public process for permitting and local jurisdictional
    participation is advanced. However, other projects are earlier in the planning stages, and
    environmental factors, community input, engineering modifications, or other changes could
    substantially alter the scheduled outlay of funds.
    Budget Risk
    •   Status: Current status of project, including conceptual engineering (CE), preliminary
        engineering/environmental design (PE/ED), final design (FD), construction (CO), and not
        initiated.
    •   Type of budget estimate: Identifies the type of budget estimate that is currently being used for
        the project. These include: allocation (“round number” project budgets agreed upon by
        stakeholders during the development of Sound Move), planning (preliminary conceptual
        estimate developed for specific sites based on limited project information), conceptual
        engineering, scoping (estimate based on itemized right-of-way and construction costs on an
        estimated unit price), PE/ED (estimate based on preliminary engineering/environmental
        design), and construction (estimate based on full design drawings, specifications, and known
        unit prices).
    •   Budget risk level: Overall risk level for project, classified as high, medium, or low.
    •   Right-of-way costs: A check mark indicates those projects with potential for higher than
        budgeted right-of-way costs.
    •   Scope Escalation/Change: A check mark indicates those projects that may not be able to
        absorb additional costs and changes desired by all parties.
    •   Design and Environmental Requirements: A check mark indicates those projects with
        outstanding unresolved issues related to design or environmental requirements.
    •   Unexpected Finding During Engineering: A check mark indicates those projects which had
        an unexpected issue arise related to engineering.

    •   Limited Budget Basis: A check mark indicates those projects which are currently only
        developed to a conceptual level.
    •   Shared Project Funding: A check mark indicates those projects which rely, not only on
        Sound Transit funding, but also on outside party funding for a portion of the project.
    •   Utilities Relocation: A check mark indicates those projects that had undefined utility
        relocation issues.
    •   Project Location: A check mark indicates those projects which have unresolved location
        issues.
    •   Coordination: A check mark indicates those projects with community issues or conflicts and
        difficult project interfaces with other parties.
    Schedule Risk
    •   Risk level: Overall risk level for project classified as high, medium or low, depending on the
        nature and complexity of the issues related to the project.
    •   2008 Budget schedule: The schedule for start of service in the 2008 Budget.
    •   Adopted 2009 Budget schedule: The schedule for start of service in the Adopted 2009
        Budget.


    Spending the Adopted 2009 Capital Budget
    Sound Transit anticipates spending approximately $563.5 million in capital outlays in 2009 for
    the three project delivery programs. This budget is the result of a detailed estimate of the amount
    the agency will spend on each capital project by phase (design, construction, right-of-way, etc.).

    LINK LIGHT RAIL PROGRAM SUMMARY
    Light rail is part of a regional high-capacity transit network that was approved by Puget Sound
    voters in 1996. It includes a 24-mile Central Link system connecting Seattle, Tukwila, and
    SeaTac. Downtown Tacoma is served by a 1.6-mile Tacoma Link light rail line. This
    transportation investment provides a stepping stone for expansion. Central Link light rail will
    create a new transportation corridor where it is needed most—in the major population and
    employment centers where existing roads and bus services are already at capacity during peak
    travel times.
    The Initial Segment will extend from the Tukwila International Boulevard Station in Tukwila and
    move through Tukwila and Rainier Valley on elevated and at-grade tracks. It will pass through
    Beacon Hill in a tunnel and emerge south of downtown Seattle. It will then continue north
    alongside the existing E-3 Busway and into the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel to Westlake
    Station. A stub tunnel will extend under Pine Street. Buses and rail will operate jointly in the
    downtown tunnel. The Initial Segment is scheduled to start revenue service in the summer of
    2009.
    The Airport Link project will connect the Tukwila International Boulevard Station in Tukwila on
    elevated and at-grade tracks into the city of SeaTac to a light rail station at the main terminal
    parking garage at Sea-Tac International Airport. Airport Link is scheduled to be constructed and
    operated as part of the Central Link Light Rail Project by the end of 2009.
    The Airport Link South project would extend from the Airport Station at SeaTac along an
    elevated guideway to an elevated station combined with a park and ride lot at S. 200th Street. This
    extension is included as part of ST2.
    North of downtown Seattle, the University Link project route will consist of new tunnels to a
    station on Capitol Hill and under the Montlake Cut to the University of Washington Station near
    Husky Stadium. University Link is expected to start construction in early 2009 and open for
    revenue service in 2016.



Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                              Page 89 of 312
    The Northgate extension will extend from the station at Husky Stadium via both tunnel and
    elevated sections to an elevated station at Northgate with underground stations at 45th Street and
    Brooklyn Avenue and Roosevelt Way. North Link was included in Sound Move, but construction
    was not funded north of 45th Street. With the passage of Sound Transit 2 (ST2) in November
    2008, the Northgate extension is funded, as is the next extension north to Lynnwood.
    Tacoma Link opened on August 22, 2003, and connects downtown Tacoma with a regional transit
    center at the Tacoma Dome Station. Riders can transfer to Sounder commuter rail, ST Express
    regional buses, or local Pierce Transit buses. Five stations along the line serve major city
    destinations such as the theater district, history museum, University of Washington branch
    campus, and the commercial core.
    East Link has completed conceptual engineering and is currently in the environmental process.
    The East Link corridor extends from the Central Link International District Station in Seattle to
    Redmond via I-90, Mercer Island and Bellevue.
    The Route and Stations
    Central Link
    Seattle’s unique topography and environmental constraints are among the reasons light rail was
    chosen as the best option to meet the region's transportation needs. Seattle’s topography requires
    that a transit system be capable of running in tunnels, along hills, and on elevated tracks as well
    as at street level. Of the 14-mile Initial Segment, 2.5 miles consist of existing and new tunnels.
    Five miles are elevated and 6.5 miles are at-grade. When Central Link is completed, light rail
    trains will offer generations of passengers a congestion-free alternative to driving with service to
    a number of destinations, including colleges, hospitals, employment centers and Sea-Tac Airport.
    Central Link’s Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was completed and published in the
    fall of 1999. The Sound Transit Board selected a route between Sea-Tac and the University
    District in November 1999. Subsequent to that action, the Central Link project was divided into
    three separate segments for implementation: the Initial Segment, Airport Link and North Link.
    Sound Transit has worked with neighborhoods, architects, artists and cities to make sure the light
    rail system and stations along the Central Link line are important assets to each community.
    The Initial Segment, Airport Link, and North Link, are discussed below.
    Initial Segment
    In November 2001, after publication of the Tukwila Freeway Route Final Supplemental EIS and
    Initial Segment SEPA Addendum updating the Central Link Final EIS, the Sound Transit Board
    selected an initial segment of the Central Link project to be constructed from downtown Seattle to
    South 154th Street in Tukwila, with a bus shuttle connecting to Sea-Tac Airport. Construction of
    the Initial Segment is approximately 95% complete as of year-end 2008, and it is on track to
    open for revenue service by July 2009.
    Downtown Seattle to South Downtown
    The Initial Segment will start in a new cut-and-cover tunnel under Pine Street and travel through
    the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel utilizing existing stations at Westlake, University Street,
    Pioneer Square, and the International District. Light rail and bus service will operate jointly
    within the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel. The Convention Place Station will not serve rail
    patrons, but will continue to serve bus passengers.
    From the International District Station, the route will extend south along the east side of the
    Metro E-3 Busway to the Stadium Station south of Royal Brougham Way, continuing to the
    SODO Station north of Lander Street. After crossing Lander Street at-grade, it will transition to
    elevated track before turning east. It will travel on the elevated tracks along the south side of
    South Forest Street and cross over Airport Way. An operations and maintenance facility has been
    constructed south of South Forest Street and west of Airport Way on site of the old Rainier
    bottling plant south of downtown Seattle.

    Beacon Hill
    The light rail route will enter Beacon Hill in a tunnel that will start under Interstate 5 and continue
    approximately one mile to the east where it will emerge at McClellan Street and 25th Avenue.
    The deep subway Beacon Hill Station with elevator access only, will be located at the intersection
    of Lander Street and Beacon Avenue.
    Rainier Valley
    The light rail route will emerge from the Beacon Hill tunnel to an elevated station at South
    McClellan Street. The route will continue on elevated tracks to South Walden Street, and then run
    at grade level in a center median of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South to a point just north of the
    Boeing Access Road.
    The Mount Baker Station at McClellan and the at-grade Columbia City Station, Othello Station,
    and Rainier Beach Station will benefit Rainier Valley neighborhoods, including Beacon Hill,
    Mount Baker, Rainier Vista, Columbia City, Brighton, New Holly Park, Dunlap, and Rainier
    Beach.
    Tukwila
    In November 1999, the Sound Transit Board proposed a light rail route through Tukwila. In
    November 2001, the board selected a different route, the Tukwila Freeway Route, which was
    recommended by the City of Tukwila. The route will cross I-5 on the south side of Boeing Access
    Road and then travel on elevated tracks along the west side of East Marginal Way, crossing over
    the Duwamish River and State Route 599. The route will continue in a combination of elevated
    tracks and short at-grade sections on the west side of State Route 599, then along the west side of
    Interstate 5. Near South 151st Street, the route will turn west on elevated tracks along the north
    side of State Route 518 to the Tukwila International Boulevard Station and park-and-ride lot at
    South 154th Street. A bus shuttle will provide a direct connection with Sea-Tac Airport until light
    rail service is extended to the airport (see Airport Link section below).
    Airport Link
    In November 1999, the Sound Transit Board selected a light rail alignment that included an
    airport station connecting with the previously proposed North End Airport Terminal. The North
    End Airport Terminal project is not being pursued by the Port of Seattle at this time, and
    alternative expansion plans for airport facilities are under construction.
    In July 2005, the Sound Transit Board selected a new alignment, the Airport Link route and
    stations extending the Initial Segment from South 154th Street to South 200th Street. The board
    also selected the project to the Airport Station to be constructed and in operation by the end of
    2009. This project will continue south from the Tukwila International Boulevard Station on an
    elevated structure, cross over State Route 518, and transition to grade north of the South 160th
    Street bridge. The alignment will continue south in the median of the realigned North Airport
    Expressway, cross over South 170th Street and continue on an elevated structure to the site of the
    light rail station near the main terminal/garage of Sea-Tac International Airport. The Airport Link
    project includes construction of the SeaTac/Airport light rail station, rail installation, pedestrian
    bridge, and a pick-up and drop-off plaza located on the east side of International Boulevard in the
    City of SeaTac. At year-end 2008, the Airport Link project is approximately 77% complete.
    A resolution to amend the Airport Link project budget based on the revised cost to complete for
    redesign on the balance of the airport station and associated facilities (Station Finishes) was
    adopted by the Sound Transit Board in February 2008. The resolution also created a new project
    for the light rail segment extending from South 176th Street to South 200th Street.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                               Page 91 of 312
    North Link – University Link
    In September 2001, the Sound Transit Board directed staff to initiate a process for developing a
    North Link Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement and design effort to reconsider routes
    between downtown Seattle and Northgate. The North Link Final Supplemental EIS was
    completed in April 2006. That same month the Sound Transit Board selected the North Link
    project route to Northgate and selected the University Link portion of North Link from downtown
    Seattle to the University of Washington Station as the first phase of North Link for
    implementation. The University Link project secured New Starts funding from FTA. The signing
    of the Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA) is scheduled for January 15, 2009. Construction is
    expected to begin in early 2009 with operations beginning in 2016.
    University Link is a three mile light rail extension that will tunnel east from the Downtown
    Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT), cross under I-5 and proceed east and then north to a Capitol Hill
    Station serving the First Hill/Capitol Hill urban center. The tunnel route would then cross under
    the ship canal to an interim terminus at the University of Washington Station at Husky Stadium,
    serving the University of Washington campus and the surrounding neighborhoods.
    ST2 calls for extending light rail to the Northgate as a high priority. North from the University of
    Washington Station, the tunnel route would continue to a Brooklyn Station serving the University
    business district, surrounding residential neighborhood and north University of Washington
    campus. The light rail route would then continue north in a tunnel to the Roosevelt Station
    serving the Roosevelt commercial area, continuing along the east side of I-5 to a Northgate
    Station that would provide access to bus transfers at the Northgate Transit Center and to adjacent
    park-and-ride facilities. Funding for environmental analysis and preliminary engineering for the
    segment of the alignment from the University District to Northgate was included in Sound Move.
    Tacoma Link
    Tacoma Link is a 1.6-mile line that connects downtown Tacoma and the Tacoma Dome Station.
    The route is essentially L-shaped, extending south from South Ninth Street along Commerce
    Street. It then transitions over to Pacific Avenue near South 17th Street, and continues south. At
    South 25th Street, the route turns east to the Tacoma Dome Station. The line is a double track
    from South Ninth Street to a point just south of South Union Station/South 19th Station on
    Pacific Avenue. There it becomes a single track to the Tacoma Dome Station.
    Five stations along the line serve major city destinations: 1) Theater District/South Ninth Station,
    2) Convention Place/South 15th Station, 3) Union Station/South 19th Station, 4) South 25th
    Station, and 5) the Tacoma Dome Station. They serve city destinations that include the theater
    district, history museum, University of Washington Tacoma Branch campus, and the commercial
    core. A light rail operations and maintenance facility has been constructed near the Tacoma
    Dome Station, where light rail vehicles are serviced and stored at night.
    Tacoma Link has been in operation since August 2003, and the project completed under budget.
    East Link
    The 19-mile East Link project extends from the Central Link International District Station in
    downtown Seattle to Redmond via I-90, Mercer Island and Bellevue. The project will serve the
    transit destinations of downtown Seattle, Mercer Island, downtown Bellevue, and Overlake in
    Redmond. Additional transit markets to be served include Rainier Avenue, Mercer Island, south
    Bellevue, and the Bel-Red Corridor. Conceptual engineering for the East Link project has been
    completed, and the draft environmental impact statement is currently under development.

    Link 2009 Activities
    The primary Link activities in 2009 will be to complete construction of the entire 14-mile Initial
    Segment from downtown Seattle to Tukwila, and start revenue operation in July 2009.
    Construction of Airport Link will be completed in December 2009. Construction will begin on
    University Link. East Link is expected to enter the preliminary engineering phase and significant
    progress will be made on the final EIS.
    The Link Executive Director’s Office will continue to provide oversight and direction for the
    Initial Segment, Airport Link, University Link, and East Link projects. A primary focus will be
    on civil/systems integration and the testing and start-up of the Initial Segment and Airport Link
    service in 2009.

    Civil Engineering tasks will include: a) necessary support of construction contracts,
    b) coordinating with partner cities to address utilities, traffic circulation, and other design issues,
    c) complete civil final design for University Link and, d) support for East Link project
    preliminary engineering and environmental review.
    Systems Engineering tasks will include: a) management of contracts for light rail vehicle, signals,
    communications, and traction power, b) providing systems engineering design support for civil
    line section construction, c) complete systems final design for University Link, and d) support for
    East Link preliminary engineering and environmental review.
    Community Outreach staff will inform the public about light rail project plans, designs, and
    construction details, including safety outreach to the communities along the line. They will work
    closely with affected communities to address concerns and potential project impacts.
    Project Control staff will continue to report up-to-date information on cost, schedule, and scope
    of all Link projects to support project decision making and help assess project performance.
    During the ongoing construction and startup of the Initial Segment, continued focus will be
    placed on the configuration management process. This will assure that construction changes are
    effectively managed and coordinated. For the University Link project, the Project Control effort
    will focus on the refinement of cost estimates, schedule, and risk assessment. The Project Control
    effort for the Airport Link project will focus on the continued tracking and monitoring of budget
    and schedule performance, including coordination of schedules with the Port of Seattle, and
    supporting construction. For East Link, Project Control will support preparation of cost estimates for
    the preliminary engineering and design of the EIS alternatives.
    Project Development staff will continue to facilitate design development by coordinating with all
    Link divisions and project partners. The division will support the University Link final design and
    the federal Full Funding Grant Agreement process, and manage the East Link project. Finally,
    Project Development staff will support federal communications and reporting, and negotiate and
    manage third-party agreements.
    Link Environmental staff will continue to track the required mitigation measures, compile the
    quarterly reports for the Federal Transit Administration, and implement wetland and historic
    mitigation measures for the Initial Segment, University Link and Airport Link projects. They will
    direct environmental permitting for University Link. They will manage the environmental process
    for the East Link Final EIS. The Environmental Division will also support Operations to identify
    and implement operational environmental requirements in preparation for opening of the Initial
    Segment and Airport Link in 2009.
    Link Real Estate staff will continue to provide real estate support as needed on the Initial
    Segment close out, Airport Link, University Link, East Link and other projects in ST2. In
    addition to providing real estate services for Link projects, Link Real Estate also acquires
    property rights as needed for Regional Express and Sounder Commuter Rail projects.

    Link Capital Plan
    The Adopted 2009 lifetime budget of $4.4 billion for the Link Program contains the following
    four capital project budgets: 1) $1.8 billion for North Link, including $1.756 billion for
    University Link, $46.0 million for the two other segments from the University of Washington
    Station to Brooklyn Station at NE 45th Street, and Northgate to 45th Street, and $5.0 million for
    ST2 Early Work; 2) $2.2 billion for the Initial Segment, which includes a program reserve of
    $128 million, and the $23.7 million payment to King County Metro for debt service related to the
    transfer of the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSST); 3) $269.1 million for Airport Link; 4)
    $4.0 million for the new Airport Link South project; and 5) $77.1 million for Tacoma Link which
    is complete.
    The Adopted 2009 Budget for Link contains annual expenditures in the amount of $371.7
    million: 1) $152.1 million for North Link, of which $138.7 million is for University Link; 2)
    $156.1 million for the Initial Segment and 3) $63.4 million for Airport Link.
    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget
    Project Changes
    The Adopted 2009 lifetime budget reflects a project budget amendment adopted by the Sound
    Transit Board in 2008 for the Airport Link project that increased the budget and created a new
    Airport Link South project for the light rail segment extending from S. 176th Street to S. 200th
    Street.
    As part of ST2, the Adopted 2009 lifetime budget includes a new project North Link – ST2
    Early Work to advance preliminary engineering for the North Link segment from UW Station to
    Northgate. Sound Move includes preliminary engineering for the two projects that currently
    comprise this North Link segment, Northgate to 45th St and UW Station to Brooklyn Station (at
    NE 45th St). The new ST2 Early Work project will be combined with the two existing projects
    from UW Station to Northgate into a single project in a future budget.


    Budget Changes
    The North Link – Northgate to 45th Street project lifetime budget has increased by $10.5 million
    to the revised total amount of $19.5 million by resolution of the Sound Transit Board in
    November 2008 to supplement funding needed to acquire property for the Roosevelt Station.
    The North Link – UW Station to Brooklyn Station project lifetime budget has decreased by $10.5
    million to the revised total amount of $26.4 million by resolution of the Sound Transit Board in
    November 2008 to transfer project contingency funds to the North Link – Northgate to 45th Street
    project.
    The University Link project lifetime budget has increased by $142.0 million to the revised
    Baseline Cost estimate of $1.756 billion adopted by the Sound Transit Board in July 2008 to
    proceed with the FFGA application. The FTA has increased the federal funding share amount in
    the proposed FFGA by $63 million, partially offsetting the financial impact to Sound Transit. The
    local share of the proposed budget increase would be funded from unutilized uncommitted
    financial capacity in North King County.
    Initial Segment project lifetime subarea budget for North King County has increased by $8.6
    million and the South King subarea budget has decreased by a like amount. Budgets for North
    King County and South King County reflect the sum of actual historical lifetime outlays by
    subarea, plus estimated costs to complete distributed by subarea in accordance with the equity
    area rules established in the baseline construction estimate (BCE). With the completion of the
    Tukwila Freeway segment, unallocated construction contingency is projected to be utilized for
    North King County segments.

    Tunnel during construction, reflects actual capital outlays for this project of $23.7 million, which
    is $1.2 million under the adopted lifetime project budget of $24.9 million.
    The Airport Link project lifetime budget has increased by $25.5 million to the revised total
    amount of $269.1 million by resolution of the Sound Transit Board in February 2008, based on
    the revised cost to complete for redesign of the airport station and associated facilities (Station
    Finishes). Funding for the budget increase is provided by unutilized uncommitted financial
    capacity in South King County plus a transfer from the Regional Fund, which will be reimbursed
    by the South King County subarea, plus interest, as additional financial capacity is generated. The
    resolution also created the new Airport Link South project for the light rail segment extending
    from South 176th Street to South 200th Street to separately manage and report the costs directly
    attributable to this segment.
    The Adopted 2009 lifetime budget shows Tacoma Link closing out at $77.1 million of actual
    capital outlays, which is $3.3 million under the adopted lifetime project budget of $80.4 million.
    Tacoma Link began revenue service in August of 2003.


    Schedule Changes
    Sound Transit’s current baseline project completion milestone for University Link of late
    September 2016 for start of revenue services remains unchanged.
    The project schedule for the Initial Segment is unmodified and revenue service remains scheduled
    for July 2009.
    The project schedule for Airport Link is unmodified and revenue service remains scheduled for
    December 2009.


    Baseline Budgets and Schedules

    The Adopted 2009 Budget includes baseline budgets and schedules for the following projects,
    which have completed the criteria established for setting project baselines:
    1. University Link: baseline budget of $1.756 billion and scheduled project completion in

Project                                    100        North Link - Northgate to 45th St

Description
The Sound Move plan calls for building a light rail line from SeaTac to the University District and extending it to the Northgate
area subject to available funding. The route in this segment between the University District and Northgate was adopted by
the Sound Transit Board in April 2006 and includes a tunnel station in the Roosevelt neighborhood and an elevated Northgate
Station near the Northgate Transit Center. The budget for this segment reflects an estimate to complete preliminary
engineering only. Final design, right of way, and construction for this segment have not yet been authorized or funded.

The total budget for the North Link - Northgate to 45th St segment reflects the amended project budget of $19.5 million as
adopted by the Sound Transit Board in November 2008.

Project                                   200       University Link - Pine St Stub Tunnel (PSST) to UW
                                                    Station
Description
The 3.15-mile University Link alignment between the Pine Street Stub Tunnel in Downtown Seattle and the University of
Washington Station is located entirely underground with tunnels traveling from Pine Street: under the I-5 freeway to an
underground station at Capitol Hill, continuing north beneath SR 520 and the Lake Washington Ship Canal, to an
underground station on the University of Washington campus, near Husky Stadium. With the exception of limited cut-and-
cover tunnel sections in the vicinity of the stations, the alignment is located in two parallel bored tunnels that will be
constructed using Earth Pressure Balanced Tunnel Boring Machines. University Link is expected to generate high ridership by
connecting the three major population and employment centers of Downtown Seattle, Capitol Hill and the University District.
The adopted budget for University Link reflects an amended baseline cost estimate to add construction contingency
requested by the FTA, which was approved by the Sound Transit Board in late July 2008 for the purpose of applying for the
FFGA.

Project                                    290       North Link - UW Station to Brooklyn Station (NE 45th St)

Description
This one mile segment of North Link spans between the UW Station and the Brooklyn Station at NE 45th Street, and will be
located underground, including twin-bored tunnels with one station near Brooklyn Ave, NE and NE 45th Street in the
University District.

The budget for the North Link - UW Station to Brooklyn Station segment reflects the amended project budget of $26.4 as
adopted by the Sound Transit Board in November 2008. The total budget has not changed; however, the adopted budget
reflects advance construction of four (4) additional LRV storage tracks to be built at the Operations and Maintenance Facility.

Project                               300      Initial Segment

Description
The 14-mile Initial Segment of the Central Link light rail line is under construction. The northern terminus is at Convention
Place with passenger service beginning at Westlake Station serving downtown Seattle, the SODO industrial area, Beacon
Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and reaching an interim southern terminus at the Tukwila International Boulevard Station (S.154th
St.). Passenger stations include Westlake, University Street, Pioneer Square, International District, Stadium, SODO, Beacon
Hill, Mount Baker, Columbia City, Othello, Rainier Beach, and Tukwila International Boulevard. The operations and
maintenance base has been constructed south of South Forest Street. Buses and light rail trains will share joint operations in
the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT) beginning in the summer of 2009. Lifetime subarea budgets reflect the sum of
actual historical lifetime outlays by subarea, plus estimated costs to complete distributed by subarea in accordance with the
equity area rules established in the baseline cost estimate (BCE). With the completion of the Tukwila Freeway segment,
unallocated construction contingency within the Initial Segment project is projected to be utilized for North King County
segments, including Rainier Valley and the Beacon Hill Tunnel. As a result, the budget in North King County has increased by
$8.5 million and the South King subarea budget has decreased by a like amount. The 2009 annual budget has been
increased to reflect actual activity in 2008 and project completion in 2009.

Project                                     400       Airport Link - 154th St to 176th St

Description
Airport Link is a 1.7-mile light rail extension under construction between the Tukwila International Boulevard station and the
SeaTac International Airport that is planned to be completed by the end of 2009. The Airport Link route is a combination of
elevated and at-grade guideway, and includes a light rail station near the main terminal of the Airport, a pedestrian bridge,
and a pick-up and drop-off facility located on the east side of International Boulevard in the City of SeaTac.

The budget for Airport Link reflects the amended project budget of $269.1 million as adopted by the Sound Transit Board in
February 2008. The 2009 annual budget has been increased to reflect actual activity in 2008 and project completion in 2009.

    CAPITAL PROJECTS PROGRAM SUMMARY
    Regional Express and Sounder programs are part of the regional high-capacity transit network
    approved by Puget Sound voters in 1996. The programs include capital facilities and access
    improvements to support the Sounder commuter rail and ST Express bus service. The Capital
    Projects Department focuses on the delivery of these projects and utilizes its considerable
    expertise and experience to effectively complete the Sound Transit capital program.
    SOUNDER PROGRAM SUMMARY
    The Sounder Commuter Rail program includes planning, right of way acquisition, design and
    construction of the infrastructure needed to support a commuter rail system. When completed,
    the system will have peak-hour passenger train service to 12 stations along an 83-mile corridor
    between Everett in Snohomish County and Lakewood in Pierce County. The Sounder capital
    projects are grouped in three segments: Everett-to-Seattle, Seattle-to-Tacoma, and Tacoma-to-
    Lakewood. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) owns the right-of-way between
    Everett and Tacoma. Sound Transit owns about 7 miles of right-of-way at the south end of the
    corridor in Lakewood and Tacoma, and is acquiring about 1.2 miles of right-of-way to close the
    gap between the northern end of this right-of-way and the Tacoma Dome Station in Tacoma.
    Everett to Seattle Segment
    The Everett to Seattle segment is a 35-mile long BNSF railroad corridor that will include three
    Sounder commuter rail stations - Everett, Mukilteo, and Edmonds. In 2003, Sound Transit and
    BNSF executed agreements that allowed commuter rail service in the corridor to begin with stops
    in Edmonds and Everett. Service at the Mukilteo Station began in May 2008. The agreements
    provide Sound Transit perpetual commuter rail, round-trip service easements for four trips a day
    that are tied to Sound Transit delivering to BNSF environmental permits and approvals for track
    and signal improvements throughout the corridor. The final permit was completed and certified
    by BNSF in August 2006. The BNSF track and signal improvements will replace three single
    track sections in the corridor with double tracking and increase the capacity of the system. The
    first round trip went into service in December 2003 and the second in June 2005. The third round
    trip began in September 2007 and the fourth trip began in September 2008.
    Seattle to Tacoma Segment
    This Sounder segment is a 40-mile long BNSF railroad corridor between Seattle and Tacoma that
    includes seven Sounder commuter rail stations - King Street (Seattle), Tukwila, Kent, Auburn,
    Sumner, Puyallup, and Tacoma. The service at Tukwila is currently being provided at a
    temporary facility.
    Extensive track and signal improvements throughout the 40-mile Seattle to Tacoma corridor were
    completed through a partnership between Sound Transit and BNSF. These improvements
    increased the rail capacity of the corridor to support nine round trip Sounder trains a day without
    compromising freight mobility in the Puget Sound area. The 5th and 6th roundtrip trains
    including a reverse commute train began in September 2007. Together, the partnership
    accomplished approximately $343 million in rail capacity improvements, including a new train
    control signal system; railroad crossing safety improvements and approximately 25 miles of track
    upgrades.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                           Page 112 of 312
    Tacoma to Lakewood Segment
    This Sounder segment is eight-miles long, including over one mile of new track to be constructed
    by Sound Transit and seven miles of track purchased from BNSF that will be upgraded for
    commuter rail by Sound Transit. Property acquisition for the new track portion began in 2003 and
    is scheduled to be completed in 2008. This corridor will serve stations in South Tacoma and
    Lakewood. It will connect to the Seattle to Tacoma segment at the Tacoma Dome Station.

    Construction in the corridor is being completed in two phases; the M Street to Lakewood phase is
    scheduled to begin in 2009 and the D Street to M Street phase is tentatively scheduled to begin in
    2010. Note the current budget for D to M Street improvements is insufficient to complete the
    project; additional funding from benefited 3rd parties will be necessary for improvements to be
    constructed.
    Sounder Systemwide
    Layover facilities are a systemwide element of the Sounder capital program. The Layover project
    includes three facilities for overnight train layover at Everett, Seattle, and Lakewood. Currently a
    three train layover facility is in service at Everett with expansion planned for 2009, a layover
    facility is in service near King Street Station in Seattle, and a temporary layover facility is in
    service at Tacoma. The temporary Tacoma layover will be replaced by a layover facility to be
    constructed at Lakewood during the M-Street to Lakewood Track and Signal improvements.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                            Page 113 of 312
Adopted 2009 Budget   Page 114 of 312
    Sounder Capital Plan
    The Sounder 2009 adopted lifetime capital budget (1997 – 2013) is $1.4 billion with a adopted
    2009 annual spending plan of $154.3 million. The program lifetime budget has a net increase of
    $210 million from 2008 due to a budget increase for the D Street - M Street Track and Signal
    Improvements Project and the addition of the ST2 project adding trains to the south line. The
    yearly spending plan reflects an increase of $87.7 million compared to the current 2008 spending
    plan. The spending increase is mainly due to the planned initiation of construction of M Street -
    Lakewood Track and Signal improvements and payments due to BNSF for the ST2 project
    adding trains to the south line.
    The final stage of construction on Everett Station began in June 2008. The Mukilteo Station,
    North Platform was completed and opened for service in May 2008. Design work for interim
    improvements continues for the Edmonds Station prior to relocation of the station to the new
    Edmonds Crossing project. The Edmonds Crossing project is a new multimodal terminal under
    development by the Washington State Ferries and will be located southwest of the existing
    station.
    In the Seattle to Tacoma corridor Sound Transit continues to work with the cities of Tukwila and
    Renton to define the scope and sequencing of permanent Tukwila Station improvements in
    accordance with local development plans.
    In the Tacoma to Lakewood corridor, Lakewood Station opened for regional and local bus service
    in the fourth quarter of 2008. Construction of the South Tacoma Station began in May 2008 and
    is scheduled for completion in March 2009. Design for the M to Lakewood Track and Signal
    Improvements and the L Street Layover was completed in June 2008; final design for the D to M
    Street Track and Signal Improvements was initiated in July 2008.
    Changes in the Adopted 2009 Budget
    Budget Changes:
    •   Mukilteo S. Platform (206): The project budget was increased by a $1.8 million transfer from
        the program reserves, due to delays in transfer of property. The budget increase is to fund
        escalation of construction costs.
    •   Layover – Snohomish County (140): The project budget was be increased by $458 thousand
        transferred from the program reserves due to increases in construction costs caused by project
        delays associated with a property owner dispute.
    •   Layover –South King County (140): The project budget was increased by $880 thousand
        transferred from the program reserves to fund increases in construction costs due to
        construction delays resulting from property owner dispute.
    •   Layover – Pierce County (140): The project budget was increased by $1.1 million transferred
        from the program reserves to fund increases in construction costs. The increase is due to
        delays in the construction of the M Street – Lakewood Track and Signal Project.
    •   ST2 Seattle-Tacoma Track & Signal (510/520): This project is part of ST2 and was an
        amendment to the 2009 budget. The project budget is $185 million with $56 million due to
        be spent in 2009. This will ultimately add four new trips to the south line with one each
        scheduled to come on line in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
    •   M Street to Lakewood Track and Signal Improvements (130): The project budget was
        increased by a $5 million transfer from the program reserves to fund increases in construction
        costs due to project delays.
    •   D to M Street Track and Signal Improvements (135): The project budget was increased by
        $25 million in available subarea financial capacity due to scope modifications that increase
        the overall project costs. Note, with this additional funding the budget is insufficient to
        complete the project. Additional funding from benefited third parties will be necessary for
        improvements to be constructed.

    construction as liens are released, final invoices are processed, claims are negotiated and settled
    and remaining budget is returned to program reserves.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                              Page 116 of 312
    Scope, Schedule and Budget Risks

    •   D Street - M Street Track and Signal (135): The alternative selected for the D to M
        Street Track and Signal improvements provides separation between the track and Pacific
        Avenue that was not anticipated when Sound Move was adopted. The elimination of at-grade
        crossings results in a cost increase of approximately $60 to $75 million. Funding for the
        project will be derived from available subarea financial capacity ($25 million) and yet to be
        identified grants and direct and in-kind partner funding.
    •   M Street - Lakewood Track and Signal (130): Start of construction for these
        improvements was delayed because of an on-going dispute over utility relocations with fiber
        optic providers and to accommodate the WSDOT-Rail Point Defiance Bypass Project.
        Delays in construction have lead to cost escalation. The project budget has been increased by
        $5 million. Further delays will continue to negatively impact the project budget.
    •   Mukilteo Station, South Platform (206): The north platform of the Mukilteo Station
        was completed in 2008. The build-out of the south platform is dependent upon resolution of a
        complex real property transaction within budget and schedule for use of the property
        adjoining the rail right-of-way.
    •   Tukwila Station (236): A temporary station is in service at Tukwila. Design and
        construction of a permanent station has been impacted by the planned implementation of
        other major improvements in the project area by the Cities of Renton and Tukwila. Design of
        a permanent station will be advanced to the 30% engineering stage to complement the cities’
        planning processes. It is unlikely that sufficient funding will be identified to fully implement
        this project as part of Sound Move. Portions of the total project may be constructible within
        existing budget.
    •   Layover (140): This system wide project has challenges in several areas. In Everett, the
        ongoing work to address an adjacent property owner’s claim of access rights has added
        additional time and cost to the project. Legal action will be necessary to resolve the issue.
        Construction delays in the M Street – Lakewood Track and Signal project have delayed
        Pierce County Layover that is to be constructed concurrently with the track and signal
        improvements.
    •   Edmonds Station (209): Permitting coordination with City led projects and the BSNF
        double track project have delayed the start of construction. Construction bidding will take
        place in late 2008; construction will be initiated in early 2009 and completed in 2010.
        Further delays may place the project budget at risk due to continuing construction cost
        escalation.

Project                                   100       Everett-Seattle Track & Signal

Description
Scope: Sound Transit executed agreements with Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) and purchased commuter rail easements for
service between Seattle and Everett. Sound Transit made payments to BNSF on specific dates; $79M - 12/17/2003, $79M - 12/17/2004,
$50M - 12/17/2006, $50M - 12/17/2007. BNSF is responsible for construction of any track and signal improvements, Sound Transit has
environmental compliance responsibilities that run concurrent with the construction activity which are being captured in
Permitting/Environmental Mitigation (project 131) and Willow Creek Environmental Mitigation (project 101). BNSF is expected to complete
their work in 2010.

Changes since 2008: $127K in project savings transferred to the Snohomish County program reserve.

Project                                   110       Seattle-Auburn Track & Signal

Description
Scope: This project is the Seattle to Auburn portion of the 40-mile segment from Seattle to Tacoma, located in the existing BNSF mainline
railroad corridor, is made up of this project and Auburn to Tacoma Track and Signal, project 120. The costs are allocated to the two
projects based on track miles. The extensive track and signal improvements throughout the corridor are being made through a
partnership between Sound Transit and BNSF. These improvements will increase the rail capacity of the corridor so that additional
passenger trains do not compromise freight mobility in the Puget Sound area. Phase I track improvements have been completed.
Passenger service began in September 2000 with two round-trip trains per weekday. Currently, eight round trips per day are running, as
well as special event service for weekend sports and community events. Sound Transit's agreement with BNSF allows nine round-trip
trains to Lakewood when track and signal improvements are complete. Train 9 is scheduled for mid-2009. We have an agreement with
WSDOT for an $8.6M contribution for track modifications at King Street Station, which is included in the project budget.

Changes since 2008: None

Project                                   131       Permitting/Environmental Mitigation

Description
Scope: The Agreement between BNSF and Sound Transit signed in December 2003 commits Sound Transit to acquire all of the permits
necessary for BNSF improvements identified in the Environmental Impact Statement. Sound Transit is also responsible for implementing
the off-site mitigation required for the project. All environmental permits for all easements were in-hand by August 2006. The mitigation
scope includes the purchase of three properties in the Snohomish River Estuary, and a small freshwater wetland enhancement project in
the Town of Woodway. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2009 but post construction mitigation and monitoring will take place
through 2010.

Changes since 2008: $2.1M in project savings transferred to the Snohomish County program reserve.

Project                                   135       D Street-M Street Track & Signal

Description
Scope: Design and construct a connection between the Tacoma Dome Station and the Sound Transit railroad right-of-way (the Lakeview
Subdivision Line) commencing at the S. Tacoma Avenue overpass. Board action was taken in December 2007 selecting an alternative
that provides grade-separation over Pacific Avenue. Project costs estimated at $125M to $150M exceeds current budget and Sound
Transit financial capacity. Funding partnerships are being developed to offset this shortfall.

Changes Since 2008: $25M increase in project budget from additional Sound Transit financial capacity in the Pierce County sub-area.
The 2009 annual budget was increased by $2.2M from the proposed budget by amendment.

Project                                   140        Layover

Description
Scope: Layover is a system wide component of the commuter rail program. It includes storage tracks and facilities for layover of trains at
Seattle, Everett, and Lakewood. The costs and budget are allocated to 3 subareas based on vehicle miles with 26 weekday train trips in
service. The budget includes a $12.7 million pass-through state grant to Amtrak for the improvements to the Seattle (Holgate) yard. A
new sub-project has been initiated to expand the existing temporary L St. Layover Yard in Tacoma because of the delay on the D St. to M
St. Track & Signal project.
Changes since 2008: The Proposed Budget increased to account for an escalation in construction scope and costs. This amount was
amended prior to Board adoption of budget.

Description
Scope: Everett Station is a multimodal station accommodating Amtrak, Greyhound, Everett Transit, Community Transit, Sound Transit
Express Bus, Sounder Commuter Rail, charters, taxis, and shuttles. The initial phase of the project was developed by the City of Everett.
Sound Transit is responsible for construction of the final phase of the station, including demolition and remediation on the east side of the
tracks (completed in 2006), the east parking lot (440 stalls), a pedestrian bridge over the tracks connecting the east parking lot to the
commuter rail platform, pedestrian access plazas on both sides of the tracks, completion of the north portion of the south parking lot (total
300 parking stalls), and a small operations building on the west side of the tracks to house maintenance supplies, security personnel and
BNSF train crews.

Project                                   206        Mukilteo Station, South Platform

Description
Scope: The Mukilteo Station South Platform project includes the 2nd platform, stair & elevator towers for both platforms and the
pedestrian bridge connecting them. A contribution towards a surface parking lot to be constructed by Washington State Ferries as part of
a future new Mukilteo multimodal terminal, is also included.

Changes since 2008: Project budget increased by $1.8M, delays in property transfer have resulted in escalated construction cost
estimates.

Project                                   209        Edmonds Station

Description
Scope: Edmonds is currently served by a temporary platform on the east side of the tracks at the Edmonds Amtrak Station. An interim
station will be constructed for Sounder service until such time as the Edmonds Crossing multimodal station led by the Washington State
Ferries is funded and built. When BNSF constructs a second main line through Edmonds, construction will require removal of the
temporary station platform. The interim station will include two platforms (shared with Amtrak), shelters for weather protection, short term
parking for passenger drop off and pick up, and about 150 parking spaces. The station scope has been revised to reflect the shorter
lifespan (10-15 years) expected for the interim station due to the future Edmonds Crossing project. To ensure continuous service is
provided once BNSF starts construction of the second mainline, Sound Transit must build a new platform on the west side of the existing
tracks between Dayton and Main Streets, as an initial phase of development at this site.

Project                                   236       Tukwila Station

Description
Scope: Service to Tukwila is currently supported by a temporary station boarding area. Preliminary engineering is underway on the
design of a permanent station. The permanent Tukwila Station may include two platforms with canopies, surface parking, a bus transfer
facility, two ticket vending machines, and bike lockers, depending on the cost estimate for these elements. It will be constructed south of
Longacres Way and west of the BNSF railroad tracks. The current station budget is only sufficient to fund a portion of the permanent
station. The project partners (Tukwila, Renton, AMTRAK, KCM, ST) have developed a Master Plan for the station. The Master Plan also
identifies off-site improvements that will be the responsibility of others.

    REGIONAL EXPRESS PROGRAM SUMMARY

    The Regional Express program includes Community Connections and HOV Access projects. To
    maximize public access between regional and local transit systems, Sound Transit is completing a
    variety of Community Connection facilities, including transit centers, park-and-ride lots, and
    transit access improvements. These facilities will improve access to the regional transit system as
    well as connections to local transit services.
    The HOV Access projects are being implemented through a partnership between Sound Transit
    and the Washington State Department of Transportation. Sound Transit is funding direct access
    ramps and freeway transit stations within WSDOT right-of-way to make it easier for transit
    customers, vanpools, and carpools to access the HOV lanes on some of the region’s most
    congested freeways.

    Regional Express Capital Plan
    The Regional Express 2009 adopted lifetime capital budget (1997–2013) is $834.4 million with a
    2009 annual spending plan of $37.6 million. The program lifetime budget is adopted to increase
    by $49.1 million in 2009. The increase is associated with the construction of the Mountlake
    Terrace Freeway Station scheduled in 2009-2010 and the completion of design for the I-90 Two
    Way Transit and HOV Access Stage 3 project now scheduled for 2013.
    The yearly spending plan reflects a decrease of $22.4 million compared to the current 2008
    spending plan. Expenditures in 2009 in the Regional Express Program will be lower than in 2008
    due to the completion of the Totem Lake Freeway Station, Mercer Island Park-and-Ride, Bothell
    Branch Campus Access, South Everett Freeway Station, Redmond Transit Center, I-90 Two Way
    Transit and HOV Access Stage 1, and Issaquah Transit Center projects in 2008.
    The Snohomish County program has one project remaining to be completed, Mountlake Terrace
    Freeway Station currently in final design.
    The South King County projects are in service with the exception of the Star Lake Freeway
    Station. A feasibility study completed in 2008 concluded that a viable project could not be
    constructed. The project has been deleted from Sound Move.
    In East King County, Regional Express management is focused on completing the design of the
    remaining program and advancing these projects into construction. The projects not yet under
    construction include the Renton HOV Access and I-90 Two-Way Transit and HOV Operations
    (Stages 2 and 3) projects. The 2009 adopted budget includes funding for completion of the
    previously unfunded I-90 Stage 3 design. Construction of this stage as well as Stage 2 however is
    contingent upon funding from WSDOT and ST2. The Kirkland Transit Center project is
    currently in the design phase. The remaining East King County projects not yet under
    construction are being led by others with capped contributions from Sound Transit.
    All Pierce County projects in the Regional Express program have been in service since 2004.

    substantially complete and the facility will be open for service. These dates do not include the
    project closeout effort, which can extend between twelve to eighteen months beyond the
    completion of construction as liens are released, final invoices are processed, claims are
    negotiated and settled and remaining budget is returned to program reserves.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                           Page 146 of 312
    Scope, Schedule and Budget Risks
    •   Star Lake Freeway Station (131): Feasibility study unable to identify a viable project, the
        project is proposed to be terminated and remaining funds transferred to reserves.
    •   Federal Way Transit Center/S. 317th (321): There is some budget exposure should an existing
        $2.7 million claim related to earthwork be mediated in the contractor’s favor. ST has denied
        the claim, does not believe the claim has merit and does not anticipate a settlement in the
        contractor’s favor. Nonetheless, until the determination is made, there is cost exposure.
    •   Renton HOV Access/N 8th (150): There are currently no WSDOT funds for the needed
        reconstruction of I-405 through this area. WSDOT is considering tolling and HOT lanes as a
        funding source; design efforts may be reinitiated.
    •   I-90 Two-Way, Stage 2 (386): There is a need for existing programmed state appropriations
        ($24 million) for WSDOT’s portion of the shared construction cost to proceed. Final design
        is 90% complete and is being shelved until funding is resolved. Stage 2 is on the critical path
        for East Link and needs to be completed by 2014.
    •   I-90 Two Way, Stage 3 (387): WSDOT is proceeding to complete conceptual design to
        facilitate future decisions. Stage 3 is on the critical path for East Link and needs to be
        completed by 2014.

Project                                   131       Star Lake Freeway Station/S 272nd

Description
Scope: This project consists of an in-line transit station in the I-5 median north of South 272nd Street in Kent, as well as transit/HOV direct
access ramps to and from South 272nd Street to improve bus speed and reliability. The project would provide convenient customer
access to I-5 bus service without requiring buses to exit the freeway and would improve the I-5/South 272nd Street connection for both
transit and HOV's. The I-5/South 272nd Interchange Feasibility Study identified a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) as the best
alternative to improve transit access and traffic flow to/from the Star Lake area. The estimated cost of the full SPUI exceeds $100
million. WSDOT led a feasibility study to identify a viable Phase 1 project that would have independent utility and that could be built with
the available funding and determined that the project can not be built in stages.

Changes since 2008: Budget has been transferred to the South King County program reserve and the project has been closed.

Project                                   151       Rainier Avenue Arterial Improvements

Description
Scope: This project will add Business and Transit Access Lanes (BAT Lanes), sidewalk, and medians on Hardie Ave between Rainier Ave
and Sunset Boulevard. The existing BNSF Railroad trestle will be widened to accommodate the improvements. A Transit only traffic
signal will be installed at the intersection of Hardie and Rainier Avenues. Rainier Avenue will be reconstructed between S. 2nd Street and
S. 4th Place with access control elements; sidewalk bus stop improvements and a transit signal priority system. An eastbound queue
jump on S. 3rd Street at Rainier Avenue will be constructed as part of the Rainier Avenue improvements. The City of Renton is the project
lead. Sound Transit's contribution to the project is capped at $14.9M. Sound Transit's contributions will be made as work is completed in
specific phases. The Interlocal Agreement for the PE/ED phase outlines the requirements for the City of Renton to receive monies for
each additional phase.

Project                                   312       Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station/236th SW

Description
Scope: The Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station project is an in-line station in the I-5 median near 236th Street SW with a pedestrian
connection to the Mountlake Terrace Park-and-Ride. Due to a half-diamond interchange, Sound Transit Express does not stop at the
Mountlake Terrace Park-and-Ride Lot. The in-line station will enable Sound Transit Express, operating in the I-5 corridor, to serve
Mountlake Terrace and the park-and-ride lot.

Changes since 2008: Project budget is being increased by $15.3M to reflect the 100% construction cost estimate. The funding includes a
$1M CMAQ grant, $3.9M transfer from the Snohomish County program reserve and $10.4M in available financial capacity in Snohomish
County.

Project                                   330       Newcastle Transit Center/SE 70th

Description
Scope: This project includes transit improvements along the Newcastle Way Corridor at the intersection with Coal Creek Parkway to
provide improved intersection channelization to enhance transit speed and reliability, coupled with pedestrian access/safety, shelters, and
new signalization. The project will improve customer access to King County Metro (KCM) transit services. The project definition changed
from a four bay on-street transit center on S.E. 70th Street/132nd Place S.E. to providing transit improvements along the Newcastle Way
Corridor at Coal Creek Parkway reducing the project cost. The City of Newcastle is the lead agency for design and construction of this
$4M capped contribution project funded by Sound Transit.

Changes since 2008: Transferred project savings of $2.8M to the East King County Program Reserves.

Project                                   386       I-90 Two-Way Transit & HOV Operations, Stage 2

Description
Scope: Stage 2 of the I-90 Two-way Transit and HOV Operations project will provide reliable two-way transit and HOV operations
eastbound on I-90 between 80th Avenue Southeast on Mercer Island and Bellevue Way. A new HOV lane will be added on eastbound
outer roadway and the existing ramps at 80th Avenue Southeast on Mercer Island and Bellevue Way and I-405 will be modified. In
addition, the existing eastbound I-90 to I-405 auxiliary lane will be extended west to East Mercer Way. The current reversible operations in
the center roadway, with both lanes operating in the same direction, will remain. Stage 2 is being cost shared between Sound Transit and
the Washington State Department of Transportation. Resolution of scope issues and funding shares, and construction cost escalation
due to schedule uncertainty may require funding from the East King County Program Reserve for ST's share of the project.

Project                                   387       I-90 Two-Way Transit & H0V Operations, Stage 3

Description
Scope: Stage 3 of the I-90 Two-way Transit and HOV Operations project will provide reliable two-way transit and HOV operations
eastbound and westbound I-90 between 80th Avenue Southeast on Mercer Island and Rainier Avenue / I-5 in Seattle. This stage will also
include the installation of screening on the shared-use pathway on the I-90 floating bridge. The current reversible operations in the center
roadway, with both lanes operating in the same direction, will remain.

Changes Since 2008: Project budget has been increased by $62.5M, $24M will be transferred from the East King County program reserve
and $38.5M in available financial capacity in East King County.

Project                                 999       Regional Express Program Reserve

Description
Changes since 2008: Snohomish Country program reserves had draws for Lynnwood HOV of $13K and Mountlake Terrace Freeway
Station of $3.9M and savings of $57K from North Everett Transit Center deposited. South King County program reserve increased to
reflect moving budget from Star Lake Freeway Station - $1M. East King County's current program reserve of $18.7M increased by $14.1M
to reflect savings from multiple projects and there is a draw for I-90 Two-Way Transit & HOV, Stage 3 of $24M. Renton HOV Access/N
8th is at budget risk and that may require future draws on East King County reserves. Based on current needs future draws are
estimated to require the remaining funds in the program reserve.

    PROGRAM OVERVIEW
    Agency Operations consolidates the activities of the agency that support the project and service
    delivery activities, manage board-approved initiatives and programs and cover agency-wide costs
    not associated with an individual project or modal service. The major program areas include net
    staff operations, capital replacement, Research & Technology and debt service.
    The Adopted 2009 Budget for Agency Operations is $125.4 million, $42.0 million for operational
    expenses and $83.3 million for capital.


    Staff Operations
    As we look forward to 2009 and beyond, Sound Transit continues to mature as an organization.
    Areas that will require additional staff focus in 2009 include the start-up of Central Link
    operations, the roll-out of the ORCA smartcard system to customers of seven transit agencies in
    the region as well as the ramping up of construction for University Link.
    In addition, two areas where cost and management efficiencies have been identified are related to
    ticket vending machine (TVM) maintenance, and facilities maintenance. As Central Link begins
    operation, these two programs will be reaching a level of activity that supports bringing these
    functions in-house. This will result in increased operational efficiencies and more predictable
    cost control over the current business model of contracting these functions with outside vendors.
    The board’s budget policy vests authority to add, move or delete positions to the CEO while
    maintaining authority over agency staff expenditures through its authorization of budget amount.
    Since the 2008 budget was adopted, 10 FTE’s have been added to the staffing plan that was
    included in the 2008 budget. These positions are funded for 2008 within board-authorized
    budgetary levels.

    Sound Transit employs both corporate staff which administers its programs and services, and
    operations staff that are directly involved in transit operations. The organizational chart (page 12)
    identifies the functions that are performed within each department. For example, the Executive
    Department includes executive management, diversity, rail activation as well as safety, security
    and quality assurance functions. The agency maintains a long-term staffing plan (currently
    through 2016) that allows agency management to confirm that staffing levels fall within the
    agency’s financial resources.
    The costs for employees and associated expenses dedicated to the operation of Link light rail, ST
    Express bus, Accessible Services, Sounder commuter rail, and TVM maintenance, are listed
    under Transit Operations Budget Summary in the Service Delivery section of this document. The
    staffing plan to support these functions includes 36 FTE’s; an increase of 10 FTE’s over the 2008
    Budget.
    The costs for corporate employees and associated expenses are captured within the agency’s staff
    budgets, which are detailed in the agency’s eight departments later in this section of the Adopted
    2009 Budget. These costs include salaries and benefits for all agency non-operational employees,
    services, materials and supplies, utilities, insurance, depreciation, leases and rentals and other
    miscellaneous expenses. In addition, this section presents performance scorecards for each
    department for 2009.
    The total Adopted Staff Operating Budget for 2009 of $65.4 million represents a $4.7 million
    (7.7 percent) increase to the Adopted 2008 Budget.
    The staffing plan for corporate positions includes an increase of 13 FTE’s over current levels.
    The corporate staffing plan will add positions to support the Smartcard system, an enhanced
    facilities maintenance function, the conversion of two temporary helpdesk positions in IT to
    permanent staff, additional support for University Link construction, agency-wide training
    support and administrative/customer support in Transportation Services.
    In addition, the corporate staff budget includes funding to support agency wide initiatives related
    to environmental sustainability, management of the agency’s assets, document management and
    staff training.

    S0UND TRANSIT AGENCY REVIEW (STAR)

    In 2005, Sound Transit initiated work on updating its performance reporting through development
    of a performance management system based on the ‘balanced scorecard’ approach developed by
    Robert Kaplan of the Harvard Business School. Development of this reporting system included
    updating the agency vision and mission statements, establishment of five key results areas,
    identification of a goal statement for each key result area, implementing department initiatives to
    achieve desired outcomes, and selection of performance measures for department initiatives.
    A Transit Performance Management Roundtable was held in October 2005 where Sound Transit
    exchanged performance management ideas with executives from BART (Bay Area Rapid
    Transit), DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit), Orange County Transit Authority (OCTA), Utah
    Transit Authority (UTA), and Valley Transit Authority (VTA). After studying the performance
    measurement and reporting systems of 11 transit agencies, a new performance reporting system
    was developed for Sound Transit based on knowledge gained from those peer comparisons. The
    performance system called Sound Transit Agency Review (STAR) includes goals and objectives
    statements for five key results areas or Themes which consists of Project Delivery, Service
    Delivery, System Expansion, Stewardship, and Organizational Vibrancy. A goal statement for
    each Theme is published and each department is responsible for translating those goals into
    specific initiatives with defined performance measures. This integrated system provides a basis
    for evaluating the accomplishments of our departments towards the overall agency goals.
    The Agency’s vision statement is:


                      “Easy connections…
                            to more places...
                                     for more people.”


    Sound Transit’s mission statement is:


              “Sound Transit plans, builds, and operates regional transit systems and
             services to improve mobility for the Central Puget Sound”.
    These goals, initiatives, and measures are summarized below on individual scorecards for each
    department to provide a concise basis for evaluation of our performance. As the STAR
    performance management system is implemented, this set of scorecards will evolve as Sound
    Transit gains experience through quarterly internal reporting on these measures. The scorecards
    are presented below, first as an overall agency scorecard and then as departmental scorecards that
    support the overall agency vision and mission. This project continues to be refined as staff is
    focused on improving the performance metrics and the data to measure and report.

    COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND
    The Sound Transit Board established a $50 million fund to supplement the mitigation of impacts
    associated with construction and operation of light rail in southeast Seattle. For the Adopted 2009
    Budget this program is closed with $0 dollar funds requested for 2009.



    TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT (TOD)
    The Board established the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Program in 1997. Subsequent
    motions and resolutions provide program guidance, including M99-60 prescribing TOD evaluation
    criteria and the Real Property Disposition Policy and Procedures (R99-35) which focuses on surplus
    property and joint development. The board actions direct the TOD Program to create transit
    supportive development and communities at Sound Transit facilities, stations, and station areas by
    working with local jurisdictions, property owners, and public and private developers. The TOD
    Program focuses on five areas of activity:


    Technical assistance: provides staff and consulting expertise to Sound Transit project staff, cities,
    counties, and not-for-profit agencies within the district. During 2008, technical assistance included
    station area and station development analyses for TOD and joint development opportunities,
    including at the Capitol Hill Station, continued participation in Snohomish County’s Urban Centers
    Program, and a real estate value analysis of the transit-oriented rezone proposal for the Bel-Red
    Corridor.


    Facility enhancement: creates improvements to existing facilities that support transit and
    pedestrian connections and increased ridership. In 2008, the Program staff began conceptual
    discussions with Capital Projects and City of Tukwila staff for future redevelopment at Tukwila
    Station, and monitored design and permitting for the Federal Way Transit Center East TOD Parcel
    mixed-use development.


    Strategic acquisition: identifies potential sites to preserve or create TOD opportunities by working
    with local jurisdictions, property owners, and developers. During 2008, no strategic acquisition
    opportunities were identified.


    Broker/catalyst/partner: creates increased ridership through appropriate development within
    station areas in collaboration with community representatives. In 2008, Program staff evaluated
    potential joint development options for private investment at the Mount Baker Station and issued a
    Request for Proposals for potential mixed-use redevelopment.


    Surplus Property Utilization Plan: evaluating the agency’s real property inventory to make
    disposition recommendations as directed by TOD/Joint Development policies and guidelines. In
    2008, the TOD Program led agency staff and consultants in completing the 2008-2010 Rainier
    Valley Excess Real Property Utilization Plan. In addition, Program staff initiated the property
    evaluation and prospective sale of a surplus parcel for the relocation of Firestone’s retail store at
    Mount Baker Station, for an eventual TOD redevelopment there.

    2009 Activities:
    In 2009 the TOD Program will monitor the construction of the Korean Women’s Association senior
    housing project at the Federal Way Transit Center East TOD Parcel. Staff will manage a multi-year
    process with the City of Seattle, Capitol Hill Chamber, and the community to guide the future TOD
    opportunities at the Capitol Hill Station. A request for proposals (RFP) will be issued for
    redevelopment of the former Firestone site at the Mount Baker Station, involving the community,
    the City of Seattle, and Sound Transit. Progress in selecting a developer for a joint development at
    the Mount Baker “Triangle” site is also anticipated. Similar RFP efforts will occur for the two
    Othello Station surplus TOD properties.
    Future ST2 joint development opportunities will be evaluated based on alignment and facility
    decisions, with staff contributing to real property evaluations for right-of-way and stations options.
    Staff will continue to provide on-demand real estate and land use information to the public and
    private sectors for station areas and facilities throughout the district.
    The Adopted 2009 operating budget for TOD is $265,000 in District wide TOD operating
    expenditures.

    Public Art Program
    The Sound Transit Board has endorsed a public art program to work with artists, community and
    project staff to develop art projects for the agency’s capital projects that reflects the community’s
    interest and reflects positively on the agency.
    The Sound Transit art policy adopted by the board in January 1998:
        recognizes a wide range of opportunities for art, from discrete artworks to artistic
        enhancements, to functional elements of facilities.
        commits to having artists work with the preliminary and final design teams on the development
        of the project design and on the integration of art into the system as a whole.
        establishes an art budget calculated as 1% of capital construction costs, excluding the cost of
        tunneling. The funds for art are pooled within subareas.
    To carry out the policy, the Sound Transit Art Program (STart) was established. STart is staffed by
    one full-time administrator and one full-time project coordinator responsible for coordinating the
    work of the art program.
    Art and design are developed collaboratively through a process involving communities, engineers,
    architects, landscape architects, artists and staff working together and sharing ideas. Because art is
    intended to be an integral part of Sound Transit facilities, it is reviewed during the design review
    process organized for each project.
    In 2009 the public art program will:
                 •    Manage completion of Final Design of artwork for the Capitol Hill and UW
                      Stadium Stations of University Link; Manage design development for Tukwila
                      Sounder Station.
                 •    Oversee installation of art projects for the following capitol projects:
                      SeaTac/Airport Station; the E-3 Transit Corridor in Seattle; South Tacoma Sounder
                      Station, Mukilteo Phase II; Everett Phase II; and Kirkland Transit Center.
                 •    Identify opportunities and commission artists for South Everett Transit Center and
                      Ash Way Park-and-Ride.
                 •    Analyze system-wide art to identify remaining commission opportunities within the
                      Sound Move package.

    The Adopted 2009 Budget for STart is $1.4 million which is composed of $202.0 thousand in
    operating expenditures and $1.2 million of capital investment. Operating expenses consist of the
    cost of maintaining, repairing, replacing and cleaning installed art work and was established at
    roughly 10% of total life time budget. The lifetime budget was increased in 2008 by $26.5 thousand
    through a transfer from Sounder Mukilteo station in Snohomish County.

    RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY
    In 2002, the Sound Transit Board approved the “Sound Transit Transit Technology Plan (Motion
    2002-101),” which established the goals, objectives and funding limits for a set of technology based
    initiatives. The purpose of these initiatives is to provide research, funding, and the implementation
    of new systems to support bus rapid transit type technology applications, next train arrival
    information for Sounder Commuter Rail, and security technologies among ST facilities and
    services. Applications have included the expansion of transit signal priority in specific corridors,
    funding for automated next stop displays next stop annunciation for passengers on ST buses,
    vehicle location systems and research, automated passenger counting systems, and real-time
    passenger information at select transit centers and Sounder Stations.

    Research and Technology staff will continue the implementation of the transit technology
    initiatives in 2009, as well as the completion of earlier projects identified and approved by the
    board. The activities that are continuing into next year include the expansion of next arriving
    vehicle to transit facilities and web application; passenger counting technologies for Sounder
    Commuter Rail; the continued implementation of Transit Signal Priority for Sound Transit bus
    routes in Redmond and Snohomish County; the expansion of CCTV to the Kent and Auburn
    Garages; and completion of a technical study for providing high bandwidth WiMax technology to
    Sounder passenger cars for customer internet use and train data communications.

    DEBT SERVICE
    As of December 31, 2008, Sound Transit has $1,195 million of long-term bonds outstanding, the
    proceeds of which are being used to finance construction of capital projects. In December 1998,
    Sound Transit issued its first series of bonds in the amount of $350 million, with maturity dates
    from 2006 to 2028. In March 2005, after the board of directors approved Resolution 2005-7
    providing for the issuance of new bonds, $423 million in bonds were issued, with maturity dates on
    the 2005 issue of bonds ranging from 2011 to 2030. In December 2007 after the board of directors
    approved Resolution 2007-22 providing for the issuance of new bonds, $450 million in bonds were
    issued with maturity dates on the 2007 issue of bonds ranging from 2008 to 2036. The aggregate
    debt service for the existing bonds is $57.1 million in the Adopted 2009 Budget.

    NON-OPERATING EXPENSES
    In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, certain costs (insurance claim costs
    and premiums related to operations, taxes, operating leases and rentals, costs of maintaining
    facilities which are completed, but not yet in service, depreciation, and amortization) should not be
    capitalized to projects, but rather expensed.
    These accounting principles also require that the agency regularly evaluate the costs that are
    capitalized. If some of the agency’s capital projects have not progressed as rapidly as initially
    anticipated, excess general and administration costs or costs related to project elements that are not
    included in the final project build-out may be expensed. In addition, as projects are completed that
    will not be owned by Sound Transit, such projects are donated to the municipality that will own and
    maintain the project and an expense equivalent to the cost of the project is recorded for the
    donation.
    For 2009, these costs are captured in three non-operating expense categories. This approach will
    allow the agency to reflect more clearly the true costs of its capital assets once completed.
    Non-operating Property Expenses
    The 2009 budget for non-operating property expenses is $1.4 million.
    Expenses in this category relate to non-operational properties, including property purchased for use
    in agency projects but not yet in construction and property remaining after construction is complete
    – such as remainders and construction staging areas. These expenses for transit centers, stations,
    park and ride lots and other operational facilities, budget for these costs are included in the
    appropriate operational mode’s transit operations budget and not in this category. In addition, costs
    of preparing excess property for resale, such as surveys, title and other costs are included in this
    category.
    Costs related to operations and maintenance of property include such costs as utilities, property
    taxes, security, landscaping, cleaning and other management services related to keeping the
    agency’s properties in good condition.
    Non-operating Project Expenses
    The 2009 budget for non-operating project expenses is $14.6 million.
    Included in this category are $7.4 million in costs related to the Central Link start-up. Budget and
    expenditures for these costs have been included in the Initial Segment and Airport Link projects.
    But due to their nature, as described above, they are being expensed to the appropriate subarea.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                           Page 238 of 312
    Donations and other non-cash expenses
    The 2009 budget for donations and other non-cash expenses is $16.7 million.
    Certain projects being built in the Sound Transit capital program are intended to belong to other
    governmental agencies when completed. Examples of these projects include HOV ramps being
    built in WSDOT right of way and other projects in which Sound Transit is a partial funding partner
    and a city or county agency is acting as project lead. Authorization to expend ST funds to design
    and build these projects occurs in the capital program. However, as these projects are completed
    and put into service, accounting principles require Sound Transit to record the donation of these
    projects to the agency as an expense in the year that the transfer occurs.
    Also included in this category are project costs that are being written off and depreciation related to
    non-operating agency assets.

Description
This budget item is the cost of Sound Transit staff administration capital. Only those items that meet the current accounting capitalization
threshold of $5,000 per item are included here. All of these items are funded out of the Regional Fund.

Budget has been added for period 2009 through 2016, consistent with the finance plan, to fund this program through the end of Sound
Move capital construction. There was an amendment transfering $90,000 from Sounder Operations to Agency Administration for the
purchase of agency fleet vehicles.

Changes since the 2008 Budget: In July 2008 the Board adopted an amendment to the Administrative Capital budget that increased the
lifetime budget by $715,000.

Project                               500       Capital Replacement

Description
This project provides funds for a sinking fund contribution to a capital replacement reserve to replace agency capital assets as they wear
out and need replacement. These amounts are derived from the Agency’s long-term financial plan which generates a capital replacement
schedule for all agency assets based on their costs and useful lives.
In 2009, Staff will complete a set of policies that layout guidelines and the process for funding future capital replacement from this fund.

    SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

    Allocation and capitalization methodology
    Approximately 62 percent ($40.4 million) of the staff operating budget of $65.4 million is
    allocated either to capital projects, transit operations, or is a general and administration expense.
    The remaining 38 percent ($25.0 million) represents the net staff operating budget for the agency.
    These costs are summarized in the table below.

    The Adopted 2009 Budget allocates about 51 percent of corporate department costs to the capital
    projects and transit operations. These costs are distributed by an activity-based allocation model
    that utilizes activity drivers to distribute costs to departments based on their use of the service or
    resource. For example, a portion of accounting’s costs is distributed to modal departments based
    on the relative share of total agency invoices that were processed for that department.
    Transportation Services, with 25 percent of the agency’s invoices for a given period, would be
    assigned 25 percent of the costs of the accounting unit. Each division is reviewed for appropriate
    drivers to allocate their costs and examples of other activity drivers include: direct wages,
    computer users, and square footage of space occupied. For budgeting purposes, these activity
    drivers are estimated for the coming year. The actual expenses are ultimately allocated based on
    actual activity drivers which are updated at the end of the year.
    Budget for costs allocated from corporate departments to capital projects and transit services are
    included in the departments' capital and operating budgets. These budgets are calculated based on
    projections of the costs for each within the agency’s long-term administrative cost forecast model.
    The costs assigned to capital projects are “capitalized”—captured as part of the capital projects’
    total costs and depreciated over the life of the capitalized project. Miscellaneous capital outlays
    (such as computers and small equipment) are recorded as Regional Fund fixed assets, even if the
    costs are incurred by a modal department.
    Capitalization
    It is the policy of Sound Transit to capitalize costs for items that cost more than $5,000 and have
    useful lives that are greater than one year. Such costs are capitalized into fixed asset accounts
    within the balance sheet and depreciated over their useful lives. Sound Transit’s balance sheet
    contains separate accounts for fixed assets as described by the Washington State Budget and
    Accounting Reporting System. Fixed assets are tracked through the agency’s enterprise resource
    planning system, and are reconciled by asset account. Expenditures for capital projects under
    construction are reported on the balance sheet in a construction in progress account. When
    construction is completed and the asset placed in service, the asset will then be recorded as a
    fixed asset and associated depreciation will be recorded.



Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                              Page 259 of 312
    The Adopted 2009 Budget records all debt service payments as non-departmental operating
    expenses so that total debt service payments are identifiable. It then allocates a portion of those
    debt service payments as capitalized interest to capital projects in proportion to the agency’s
    annual capital spending s a percentage of outstanding debt, consistent with generally accepted
    accounting principles.
    The Adopted 2009 Budget contains $32.6 million in non-operating expenses. These costs are
    associated with capital programs, but under generally accepted accounting principles cannot be
    treated as capital outlays and must be expensed. These costs include leases, rent, taxes, some
    insurance items, specific project management consulting services, and project write-offs and
    contributions to other governments.
    Subarea financial structure, allocations, borrowing, and debt allocation
    The subarea equity principle is an integral part of the regional transit system approved by the
    voters in 1996 and is included in Sound Move’s Appendix B: Financial Policies as adopted in
    1996 and amended on April 13, 2006. The subarea principle is defined as “utilizing local tax
    revenues and related debt for projects and services which benefit generally in proportion to the
    level of revenues each subarea generates.” The financial policies also define Phase 1 as the period
    in which subarea equity will be evaluated. A determination of whether subarea equity is achieved
    will occur at the end of Phase 1.
    To this end, the agency has developed an accounting system that tracks all transactions, i.e.,
    revenues, expenses, and capital outlays at the subarea level. On an annual basis, management
    represents the accuracy of the subarea data through an annual agreed upon procedures report
    issued by the agency’s independent auditor in conjunction with the financial and federal audit
    processes. Additionally, the Washington State Auditor’s Office audits the subarea data annually.
    The majority of capital, transit operations, and non-capital line of business expenses and revenues
    are solely attributable to a single subarea. For those transactions that span two or more subareas,
    the agency has developed a methodology based on Sound Move’s Appendix A: Detailed
    Description of Facilities and Costs and Appendix B: Financial Policies as amended. Transactions
    that require an allocation are based on drivers that are specific to each line of business. These
    drivers are derived from Sound Move assumptions in Appendix A and B and reviewed on an
    annual basis by independent auditors. Detailed below are the drivers used by each line of business
    that are interwoven throughout the budget document and incorporated into the agency’s financial
    system for allocating costs between projects and subareas:
    Sounder drivers
    •   Track Miles: Examples of transactions allocated by track miles include construction of track
        and facilities, electrical work on track and lighting and signs pertaining to trackwork.
    •   Layover Facilities: Examples of transactions allocated by the layover facilities rule driver
        include surveying and mapping, control and signal systems, and construction of track that is
        associated with layover facilities.
    Link drivers (Initial Segment)
    •   Total Construction Costs: Examples of transactions allocated by total construction costs
        include systemwide support and agency administration costs.
    •   Fleet Requirement: Examples of transactions allocated by fleet requirement include vehicle
        costs, vehicle maintenance and the operations and maintenance facility costs.
    •   Route Miles: Examples of transactions allocated by route miles include electrification
        systems and communication systems.

    •   Number of Stations: Examples of transactions allocated by the number of stations include
        ticket vending machines and signage.


    Regional Express drivers
    •   Project size: Examples of transactions allocated by project size include agency administrative
        costs, allocated administrative consultants and signage.


    Transportation Services drivers
    •   Vehicles: Examples of transaction allocated by vehicles include the cost of vehicles and
        vehicle parts.
    •   Train Miles: Examples of transactions allocated by train miles include the costs of running
        the trains and any other costs associated with BNSF.
    •   Vehicle Miles: The number of vehicle miles is used as a driver for Sounder and is calculated
        as the number of rail cars times the number of train miles. This measure is used to allocate
        costs related to vehicle maintenance and fuel costs.
    •   Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs): Examples of transactions allocated by ticket vending
        machines include the cost and installation of TVMs and the costs for maintaining those
        machines.
    •   Platform hours: Examples of transactions allocated by platform hours include bus and
        operating revenues and expenses.


    Inter-subarea Borrowing
    In 1999, the Sound Transit Board recognized that inter-subarea borrowing would occur to
    facilitate efficient cash and debt management. During the 2001 budget process, the board further
    clarified their inter-subarea borrowing policy to establish borrowing through 2009 for financial
    planning purposes. Inter-subarea borrowing is deemed needed when a subarea has a negative
    unrestricted net asset position in any given month and does not have restricted assets to cover the
    shortfall. Borrowing from other subareas will be proportional based on the lending subareas
    positive unrestricted nets assets. The borrowing subarea will pay the lending subareas interest at
    the current Seattle CPI-U rate. Subarea borrowing requirements are evaluated at each month end.
    Debt Allocation
    Phase 1 of Sound Move is forecasted to have approximately $1.6 billion of debt being issued to
    finance related capital projects. As debt is being issued throughout Phase 1, the debt will be
    allocated provisionally to each subarea consistent with the forecasted total bond allocation
    included in the annual updated finance plan. Any changes in provisional allocation will only be
    done prospectively. At the completion of Phase 1, final debt allocations will be completed based
    on the cash requirements each year of the Phase 1 program not met by subarea resources. This
    final debt allocation will establish the permanent subarea bond obligation and debt service
    requirements for the life of the outstanding debt.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                           Page 261 of 312
    Regional Fund
    The Regional Fund is funded proportionately by contributions from the five subareas. Sound
    Move financial policies allow for annual board review of the amount of local taxes to be
    contributed to the Regional Fund. The policies permit up to 10 percent of local revenues to be
    distributed to the Regional Fund. Interest earnings (excluding bond proceeds and board-approved
    repurchase agreements) on all Sound Transit funds are also assigned to the Regional Fund for
    uses specified within the financial policies.
    Sound Move identified agency administration, fare integration, research and technology, and
    Sound Transit 2 planning as funded elements within the Regional Fund. The Adopted 2009
    Budget has a $30.9 million total lifetime budget for these cost elements.
    Strategic Acquisition Fund
    Resolution 72-1 amended the Sound Transit Financial Polices to include acquisition of certain
    properties as an authorized use of the Regional Fund Contingency when it is in the best interest of
    Sound Transit to preserve right-of-way required to implement the regional transportation system.
    The Strategic Acquisitions fund provides interim funding to purchase properties and the
    appropriate subarea will reimburse the Regional Fund Contingency for a property acquisition
    when the property is incorporated into a Board approved project or sold. A property in the area of
    the Roosevelt Station in the North Link Alignment was purchased for $1.4 Million prior to July
    31, 2008. Payments to a second property owner in the amount of $532,000 were made to forbear
    construction pending final acquisition which took place in December, 2008. $11,763,298
    including the payments to forbear construction will be funded from the Strategic Acquisitions
    fund. As of the end of 2008, acquisition discussions are continuing with the owner of a third
    property located between the Airport Station and South 200th in SeaTac.


    Reserves
    Within the original $3.9 billion (1995$) program cost, Sound Move identified $110 million
    (1995$) for reserves (including bond reserves, operating reserves, and capital replacement
    reserves) over the 10-year program, allocated by subarea. Contributions to reserves are not an
    expense or outlay in proprietary fund accounting and, therefore, are not included in the Adopted
    2009 Budget. To the extent, however, reserves reflect a current obligation is identified in Sound
    Transit’s year-end financial statements in conformance with generally accepted accounting
    principles. As part of its commitment to maintain subarea equity, Sound Transit tracks
    contributions to reserves by subarea.
    Sound Move also identified $11 million (YOE$) as a systemwide contingency fund. In the 2002
    budget, the board transferred funds to create a new emergency fund that would serve to provide
    coverage in the event of an uninsured loss. While the agency maintains a comprehensive
    insurance program, the policies do contain retentions (deductibles) which the agency would have
    to cover in the event of an insurable loss. In such instances, the board, on a case-by-case basis,
    would authorize use of the Emergency Fund.
    During 2003, as part of the board action on Smart Card, $19.9 million (YOE$) was moved from
    Regional Fund programs into a Regional Fund contingency account. In 2006 the Board adopted a
    strategic property acquisition program in the financial policy 72-1 to be funded out of the
    Regional Fund contingency. To date, three actions have been authorized by the board: Two at
    North Link-Roosevelt Station and staging area and one at Airport Link – South 200th. Once these
    properties have closed actual amounts will be identified out of the Regional Fund contingency.

    Status of Debt
    The Sound Move Financial Plan projected expenditures of $5.1 billion in year-of-expenditure
    dollars for the 10-year period from 1997 through 2007. Of this amount, the plan called for
    funding $1.39 billion from bond proceeds. In December 1998, Sound Transit issued its first series
    of bonds in the amount of $350 million, with maturity dates from 2006 to 2028. The Series 1999
    bonds are special limited obligations of Sound Transit that are secured by the Motor Vehicle
    Excise Taxes, Retail Sales and Use Taxes and Rental Car Taxes. In March 2005, Sound Transit
    issued its second series of bonds in the amount of $423 million, with maturity dates from 2011 to
    2030. The Series 2005A bonds are special limited obligations of Sound Transit that are secured
    by Retail Sales and Use Taxes and Rental Car Taxes. In December 2007, Sound Transit issued
    its third series of bonds in the amount of $450 million with maturity dates from 2008 to 2036.
    The Series 2007A bonds are special limited obligations of Sound Transit that are secured by
    Retail Sales and Use Taxes and Rental Car Taxes. The interest component of the annual debt
    service payments on the bonds is allocated to capital projects as capitalized interest, consistent
    with generally accepted accounting principles. For, 2009, total projected debt service is budgeted
    at $57.1 million, of which $54.2 million is capitalized.

    Although Sound Transit has no authority to levy property taxes, its debt capacity is determined
    with reference to the value of taxable property within its service area. Under state law, issuance of
    bonds payable from any type of taxes is subject to statutory debt limitations. Sound Transit
    currently is authorized to incur debt in an amount equal to 1-1/2 percent of the value of taxable
    property within the service area without securing voter approval for bonds. With the approval of
    60 percent of the region’s voters, Sound Transit may incur aggregate indebtedness of up to 5
    percent of the value of taxable property within the service area. Each county assessor in the
    service area is required to report to Sound Transit annually on the value of the property within its
    taxing district. From those reports, the agency’s current debt capacity, taking account of the 1999,
    2005, and 2007 bond issues, has been calculated as shown below.

    Performance Statistics Discussion
    Systemwide Performance Management Program
    Sound Transit is designing an outcome-based performance management system to monitor
    progress towards accomplishing our goals. The Service Delivery Quarterly Performance Report
    to the CEO was established as a means of helping to establish the baseline framework for
    evaluating existing agency and departmental goals, objectives, and performance measures relative
    to the agency’s service delivery vision. Now finishing its fourth year, the quarterly report has
    been an integral way for the department to communicate its performance to the rest of the Agency
    as well as the public.
    The report content and form were informed by a preliminary review conducted by TSD staff of
    industry practices for performance reporting, such as the guidelines and criteria developed by the
    Association of Government Accountants. Numerous transit and other public agency management
    and performance reports were also reviewed.

    Performance Measures and Standards
    The performance measures that are presented here and that are reported on in the quarterly report
    are coordinated with the Transportation Services scorecard as well as the Agency scorecard as
    described in the Sound Transit Agency Review (STAR) section of the budget. They were selected
    by the department’s management based on industry practices for transit performance, are
    consistent with National Transit Database requirements, and take into account recommendations
    from the 2004 performance audit of ST Express bus operations.
    Efficiency and effectiveness measures that are reported on quarterly include:
    •   Ridership
    •   Percent of scheduled trips operated
    •   Boardings per revenue vehicle hour
    •   Boardings per trip or train
    •   Cost per boarding

    Service quality measures that will be reported on quarterly include:
    •   On-time performance
    •   Customer complaints
    •   Preventable accidents

    Notes
    (1) Service is reported as service hours or miles operated. Revenue hours or miles are not reported as Tacoma Link collects
         no fares for regular service at this time.
    (2) Standard is greater than or equal to 98.5%. A train is late if it a) departs a terminal station more than one minute late or,
         b) arrives at a terminal station three or more minutes late and is unable to make it's departure time.
    (3) A preventable accident is defined as an accident in which the operating employee(s) failed to do everything reasonable
         to prevent it. For Tacoma Link, the standard is less than or equal to 1.0 per 30,000 service miles. This standard was
         lowered from one preventable accident per 100,000 service miles to better reflect standard industry practices for light
         rail.

    The Sound Transit Board may amend these Financial Policies from time to time;
    the most current version of the Financial Policies is available at
    www.soundtransit.org


    PURPOSE
    The Sound Transit Board (the Board) adopted an initial framework for the financing of Sound
    Move, by setting local tax rates, focusing on minimal debt financing, requiring conservative
    projections for federal and state funding, and establishing a definition by which equity will be
    measured. The Financial Policies reflect the Board's policy intent for implementing the financial
    framework for completing Sound Move and subsequent system plans and for providing the tools
    to the Board to appropriately manage toward and respond to future conditions.


    LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
    In adopting these Financial Policies, the Board recognizes certain legal responsibilities. Existing
    state law grants all legislative and policy authority to the Board, and does not allow the Board to
    abrogate, transfer or delegate such authority to other agencies or to the five subareas within the
    Sound Transit District. Consequently, all funds collected by or provided to Sound Transit,
    including local tax revenues, federal and other government grants, bond proceeds, fare box
    revenues, interest earnings, and private development revenues, may be disbursed only with
    approval of the Board. Priorities for disbursements will be determined within Sound Transit's
    annual budgetary process, which by law requires two-thirds affirmative vote of the Board.


    Similarly, the Board recognizes that bonds issued by Sound Transit will be secured by a pledge of
    repayment through local taxes. When the bonds are issued, Sound Transit will enter a binding
    contract with its bondholders that requires a first claim against local tax revenues for repayment.
    Stated differently, bondholders will have a legal priority to Sound Transit's local tax revenues,
    above and beyond any commitment Sound Transit may wish to make with its subareas that no
    subarea will pay another subarea’s debt. Therefore, these Financial Policies reflect Sound
    Transit's commitment to subarea equity while maintaining the flexibility necessary to manage the
    financing of the System Plan on a consolidated basis and within legal constraints.


    ∗
     Resolution No. R2008-10 provides that these amended Financial Policies take effect upon the earlier of either the
    approval of local funding for the ST2 Plan by the voters at an election, or upon Board adoption of the amended
    Financial Policies by separate Resolution.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                                            Page 273 of 312
    EQUITY
    Definition of equity
    Equity will be defined as utilizing local tax revenues for projects and services that provide
    transportation benefits to the residents and businesses in each of the subareas generally in
    proportion to the level of revenues each subarea generates. Subareas may fund projects or
    services located outside of the geographic subarea when the project substantially benefits the
    residents and businesses of the funding subarea. The Financing Plan for Sound Transit activities
    addresses this equity principle by providing a financial plan for each of the five Sound Transit
    subareas, comprised of the subarea's share of local taxes, bonding capacity, farebox proceeds and
    an assumption for federal funding. The five subareas are defined as Snohomish County, North
    King County/Seattle, East King County, South King County, and Pierce County. While the
    Financing Plan will be managed by the Board on a consolidated basis, the Board will report
    annually on individual subarea performance.
    The Board agrees, therefore, that the facilities, projects and services identified in all voter-
    approved system plans represent a reasonable definition of equity for purposes of satisfying both
    public policy concerns and statutory requirements. The Financial Plan for voter-approved system
    plans will serve as the starting point for evaluating the equity principle.


    IMPLEMENTATION POLICY


    Subarea Reporting
      1. The Financial Plan will provide projections for each of the five subareas, comprised of the
         subarea's projected share of local taxes, use of bonds, farebox proceeds, an assumption for
         federal funding and related expenditures.

      2. Local taxes will be allocated for subarea reporting based on actual tax receipts collected by
         subarea and within the Sound Transit District. The annual Financial Plan will incorporate
         updated forecasts based on these actual receipts. A portion of local taxes from each
         subarea will be allocated to fund system-wide costs as identified by the Board.

      3. For subarea reporting purposes, government funding that is received for a specific project
         or service will be allocated to subarea(s) on a basis consistent with the allocation of costs
         for the project or service, unless the Board takes action to allocate the funds to other
         subareas as it deems in the best interest of Sound Transit after consideration of the funding
         needs to complete, enhance or extend the system plan.

           For subarea reporting purposes, government funding that is received that is agency-wide or
           general in scope will be allocated by the Board as it deems in the best interest of Sound
           Transit after consideration of the funding needs to complete, enhance or extend the system
           plan.

      4. Miscellaneous revenues, such as those generated through private-public partnerships,
         advertising and terminal concessions will be allocated for subarea reporting based on
         subarea investment in the facility and/or service from which the revenue is generated.



Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                          Page 274 of 312
      5. Debt will be allocated for subarea reporting based on a subarea's share of total long-term
         bonding requirements or as otherwise directed by the Board as deemed in the best interest
         of Sound Transit.


      6. Subarea expenditures will be allocated for subarea reporting based on facilities and services
         to be provided, their projected costs and project contingencies, associated operating costs,
         debt service, reserves for debt service, operations and maintenance and capital replacement.
         The allocation of expenditures for reporting purposes for facilities and services that cross
         subarea boundaries will be made by the Board to ensure safe and efficient operation of the
         system-wide facilities and services after due consideration to subarea benefits and
         priorities.

    Monitoring function
      1. Sound Transit will establish a system that on an annual basis reports subarea revenues and
         expenditures. This monitoring and reporting function will be incorporated into Sound
         Transit’s financial cycle. The Board may at its discretion conduct an independent
         assessment of the consistency of subarea reporting with Board policy guidance.

      2. Sound Transit will appoint an advisory citizen oversight committee to monitor Sound
         Transit performance under these policies (see Public Accountability below).

    Adjustments to subarea projects and services
      1. Subarea capital projects and transit services will be evaluated and adjusted annually as a
         part of the Board’s consideration and adoption of an annual budget which requires a two-
         thirds affirmative vote of the Board. Adjustments to subarea capital projects and services
         can include additional priority projects and/or services within that subarea should funding
         be available. This adjustment process recognizes that some fluctuation in revenues and
         expenditures against forecasts will occur.

      2. For those cases where a subarea's actual and projected expenditures exceed its actual and
         projected revenues and funding sources by five percent or greater, and/or where unforeseen
         circumstances occur which would result in an inability to substantially complete projects
         within such subarea's plan, the Board shall take one or more of the following actions:

               •      Correct the shortfall through use of such subarea's uncommitted funds and/or bond
                      capacity which is available to the subarea; and/or
               •      Scale back the subarea plan or projects within the plan to match a revised budget;
                      and/or
               •      Extend the time period of completion of the subarea plan; and/or
               •      Seek legislative authorization and voter approval for additional resources.

      3. For those cases where a subarea’s actual and projected revenue to be collected until the
         system plan is completed will exceed its actual and projected expenditures by five percent
         or greater, and/or where unforeseen circumstances occur which would result in the
         subarea’s ability to fund additional projects and services not identified in the System Plan,



Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                            Page 275 of 312
           then Sound Transit may use such surplus funds to complete, extend or enhance the System
           Plan to provide transportation benefits for the subarea’s residents or businesses as
           determined by the Board.

      4. Contributions from other parties, including the State, local governments and private sector
         can be programmed by the Board to complete, extend or enhance the System Plan,
         consistent with agreements with the other party.

    SYSTEM-WIDE EXPENDITURES
    The Board shall fund such system-wide expenditures as necessary to maintain and plan for an
    integrated regional transit system consistent with voter-approved system plans. Such system-
    wide expenditures shall include fare integration, research and technology programs, future phase
    planning and agency administration and other such expenditures as determined by the Board to be
    appropriate. Properties authorized for purchase by the Board to preserve required right-of-way
    will be funded as a system-wide cost until such time as the right-of-way is utilized by a
    subarea(s), at which time the cost will be allocated to the subarea(s) consistent with Board
    approved allocation. System-wide expenditures, not funded by dedicated system-wide agency
    interest earnings, revenues or other specific funding sources, shall be allocated to subareas
    proportional to the subarea’s share of total local tax revenues, population, benefits received, or on
    another basis as deemed appropriate by the Board.


    DEBT MANAGEMENT

    Legal Definition of Sound Transit Debt Financing Capacity
    Sound Transit's enabling legislation defines Sound Transit's capacity for issuing general
    obligation debt at one and one-half percent of the value of the taxable property within the
    boundaries of the Sound Transit District (and with approval of three-fifths of voters voting within
    the Sound Transit District, up to five percent of the value of the taxable property within the
    district's boundaries). There is no dollar limit for revenue indebtedness.


    Debt Service Coverage Requirements
    The Board recognizes that its future bondholders will hold first claim against taxes pledged as
    repayment for outstanding bonds. However, Sound Transit's debt financing capacity will be
    calculated on a more conservative basis, by evaluating all revenues and deducting total operating
    expenses for net revenues available for debt service.


    For long-term planning purposes, Sound Transit agency debt service coverage ratio policy will be
    set at an average coverage ratio of 2.0x for net revenues over annual debt service costs, not to fall
    below 1.5x in any single year. However, as voter-approved plans are implemented, prudent
    changes to coverage ratios may be made by the Board as appropriate. Prior to bond issuance,
    Sound Transit will establish the appropriate debt service coverage ratio to incorporate into its
    bond covenants.




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                            Page 276 of 312
    Uses of Debt Financing
      1. Debt financing for capital projects covers two distinct types of borrowing, the first related
         to long-term debt financing, and the second related to short-term debt financing.

      2. Short-term debt financing (with terms of ten years or less) is expected to be used primarily
         to bridge the gap between the necessary timing of expenditures and the anticipated receipt
         of revenues.

      3. The use of long-term financing (with terms of more than ten years) is expected to be
         limited to capital and related costs for portions of the program that have a useful life in
         excess of the term of the debt. Long-term financing should be preserved for those aspects
         of the program for which other sources of funds are not likely to be available.

    Allocation of Sound Transit Debt
      1. For reporting purposes, the amount of long-term debt financing used to benefit each of the
         subareas will be based on each subarea's ability to repay debt after covering operating costs.
         The Board may determine appropriate debt service limits by subarea.

      2. While the above policy prescribes the use of debt financing for subarea reporting, the Board
         will manage the agency's debt capacity on a consolidated basis so as to maximize resources
         between subareas.

    SETTING PRIORITIES FOR EXPENDITURES
    The Board will adopt expense budgets for transit operations and agency administration and
    maintain a multi-year capital improvement plan. A two-thirds affirmative vote of the Board is
    required for budget adoption. Sound Transit will establish guidelines for its budgeting process
    and criteria by which to establish priorities for expenditures.


    FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
    Sound Transit shall maintain polices for debt and investment management, risk management,
    capital replacement, fares and operating expenses and grants management so as to effectively
    manage voter-approved revenues and efficiently operate the regional public transit system.


    PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY
    To ensure that the construction program development and implementation occurs within the
    framework and intent of these policies, Sound Transit will:


      1. Conduct an annual independent audit of its financial statements in compliance with state
         and federal requirements;

      2. Implement a performance audit program; and




Adopted 2009 Budget                                                                           Page 277 of 312
      3. Appoint and maintain an advisory citizen oversight committee, charged with an annual
         review of Sound Transit’s performance and financial plan, for reporting and
         recommendations to the Board.



    FUTURE PHASES

    Voter Approval Requirement
    The Board recognizes that the voter-approved taxes are intended to be used to implement the
    System Plan and to provide permanent funding for future operations, maintenance, capital
    replacement and debt service (“permanent operations”) for voter-approved programs and
    services. The Board has the authority to fund these future costs through a continuation of the
    local taxes authorized by the voters. However, as a part of its commitment to public
    accountability, the Board pledges that the local taxes will be rolled back to the level required for
    permanent operations and debt service after the voter-approved Sound Transit 2 and Sound Move
    plans are completed and implemented. The rollback procedure is prescribed in the Tax Rate
    Rollback section. The Board further pledges that, after the voter-approved Sound Transit
