Transit: The Story of Public Transportation in the Puget Sound Region

Jim Kershner

Public transportation in the Puget Sound Region has been a wild roller-coaster ride since the first street cars rumbled through the streets of Seattle in 1883. It is a story replete with scandals, triumphs, and momentous turning points. In Transit, author and historian Jim Kershner (silver winner of the 2018 Independent Publishers Book Award in the regional nonfiction category) chronicles the journey from the 1880s to today, including the making and breaking of mayors, the rise of the automobile, and the urban growth of the region.
