Three light rail projects in the South Sound: what’s the difference?
Sound Transit has three new light rail projects in the South Sound. The Federal Way Link Extension will extend regional light rail from Angle Lake Station to Federal Way Transit Center. The Hilltop Tacoma Link Extension will extend current neighborhood light rail service 2.4 miles in Tacoma with six stations and connections to the Stadium and Hilltop neighborhoods. The Tacoma Dome Link Extension will extend regional light rail about 10 miles from Federal Way to Fife and Tacoma. It runs on mostly elevated track, has four stations (two with parking) and connects to Sea-Tac Airport.
