The phrase,'Unsound Transit', was coined by the Wall Street Journal to describe Seattle where,"Light Rail Madness eats billions that could otherwise be devoted to truly efficient transportation technologies." The Puget Sound's traffic congestion is a growing cancer on the region's prosperity. This website, captures news and expert opinion about ways to address the crisis. This is not a blog, but a knowledge base, which collects the best articles and presents them in a searchable format. My goal is to arm residents with knowledge so they can champion fact-based, rather than emotional, solutions.

WFS lists passenger-only ferry for sale on E Bay

The Washington state ferry Chinook is up for sale again on eBay.

The 10-year-old passenger-only boat was advertised last month with a minimum bid of $4.5 million. There were no takers but Traci Brewer-Rogstad, the ferry system's deputy executive director, says there were some telephone calls of interest.

The Chinook was relisted on Tuesday at the same minimum price, and as of Thursday morning no bids were listed. The boat was used on runs between Seattle and Bremerton but has been mothballed for four years
