To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:
Original audio recordings of all messages and/or sounds played on Link trains/platforms, including, but not limited to, those messages listed in the documents responsive to SoundTransit public records request PD16-129 .
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.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on April 4, 2016. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
This will acknowledge receipt of your request for the original audio recordings of all messages and/or sounds played on Link trains/platforms, including, but not limited to, those messages listed in the documents responsive to Sound Transit public records request PD16-129.
We received your request on April 5, 2016.
We have identified and gathered 208 MB of audio messages for link station announcements and 24.2 MB of audio messages for light rail trains. These records are in the native.wav format.
The responsive documents are too large to email. Please send $7.50 to cover copy and mail charges. Make your check payable to Sound Transit, 401 South Jackson, Seattle, WA 98104 and reference PD16-164 on your check. Once we receive payment we will copy the files to a DVD and mail it to you. If you would rather review the records here at Sound Transit, please contact me to schedule an appointment.
If we do not receive payment or hear from you by May 11, 2016, we will conclude you no longer want access to the records and will close your request file.
