Transit: The Story of Public Transportation in the Puget Sound Region
Author
Jim Kershner
ISBN
9781933245553
Ever since the first streetcars rumbled through the streets of Seattle in 1884, public transportation in the Puget Sound region has been a wild roller-coaster ride, replete with scandals, triumphs, and momentous turning points. A complete rail transit system crisscrossed the region during the trolley days, only to be dismantled by 1941. After seventy years of turmoil--and traffic congestion--a new system, Sound Transit, arose in its place. The story is not just about trolleys, trains, and buses--it is also about the making and breaking of mayors and the way that Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett developed from the 1880s to today.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Jim Kershner, Staff Of HistorylinkPublisher: HistorylinkPublished: 12/13/2019ISBN: 9781933245553Pages: 144Weight: 2.20lbsSize: 10.00h x 9.00w x 0.70d
