The sounds of Sound Transit

Public announcements made on public transit are, you guessed it, a public record

If there’s one thing we here at MuckRock love, it’s a creative interpretation of what being a “public record” really means. Which is why we were overjoyed when Kevin Wallace requested - and received - two CDs full of the programmed announcements used on Seattle’s Sound Transit trains.

We put together a short sampling below, and you can download the files yourself here.
