soundtransit link announcement audio

Kevin Wallace filed this request with the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority of Washington.


From: Kevin Wallace

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

All announcement audio messages used on Link trains and platforms (e.g. "now entering ______ station", "doors to my right", etc). Please include (a) all recordings that are currently in use, (b) all recordings that were previously in use, and (c) all recordings that are intended to be used in the future (e.g. for stations that have not yet opened, if those recordings have already been made).

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Please see the attached source records In response to your request for all audio announcement messages used on Link trains and platforms: all currently in use, previously used, and for future use. We are unable to differentiate between previously used and currently used, as the previously used become obsolete when no longer used. We have no announcements for future use.

This completes our response to your request and we are closing this request file.
