Link fare subsidy merits transit approval

Sound Transit is getting a gift horse from a downtown Tacoma business group. The agency shouldn’t look it in the mouth. The Business Improvement Area — an association of more than 300 downtown Tacoma property owners — is offering to pay Sound Transit $58,000 over a two-year period beginning in September. That’s when Sound Transit plans to start charging $1 adult fares on the hugely popular 1.6-mile light rail line that links the Tacoma Dome Station to the Theater District.
