Seattle’s Sound Transit
Participants will also hear from special guest Peter Rogoff, CEO of Seattle’s Sound Transit agency, as he recaps the business opportunities that were created as a result of the $54 billion bond package in 2016. This is on the heels of a $10.8 billion transit bond in 2008 that is nearly complete. Mr. Rogoff is also the former Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration under President Obama.
Accelerate is an opportunity for local businesses to be prepared when project procurements are made public. Whether you want to participate in Project Connect procurement opportunities, have a product or service that could be a great fit for the agency or are looking to advertise on one of our buses or at a rail station, CapMetro provides many different ways to work with businesses.
Project Connect is a proposed multi-billion dollar network expansion, including a new light rail system, a downtown transit tunnel, new MetroRapid routes and vehicles, a zero-emissions fleet and much more.
