Government has failed to provide for rapid mass transit; therefore, a Public Development Agency is proposed to build, maintain and operate a system which will control costs while providing the highest return and general good to the area and the people. The purpose of ETC shall be to cause a transportation system to be built that will be principally an elevated mass transportation system which will be electrically powered, with rubber tires. ETC will then oversee and operate the system, and all other facilities directly related to it. ETC will exist entirely within the city limits of Seattle. The system will generally follow the following routes: The S.W. Terminus will be within 1000 yds. of 35th SW and Roxbury. There will be a sta. at the site of the reservoir at 35th and SW Myrtle and within 400 yds of 35th SW and Juneau, and also within 1000 yds of 35th SW and Avalon Way. ETC will cross the Duwamish River within 1000 yds of the south edge of the high level bridge without necessitating openings for ship traffic. Within 1000 yds of 1st Ave. S. and Spokane St. there will be a sta. There will be a sta. within the grounds or building of the King Dome. The ETC Council may cause to be built several stations within the Central Business Dist., but there must be a sta. within 400 yds of 3rd Ave. and Union St. There will be at least one sta. on the grounds of the Seattle Center.

ETC will charge a fee to any group, agency, corporation or individual seeking to join onto the ETC track from within or outside the City of Seattle. ETC will seek private monies (without relinquishing control of the Corporation) to carry out its goals or any part thereof. ETC may also build and operate, or cause other transportation improvements that will affect its principal train operation.
