"David & his team at The Workshop did an outstanding job for us in helping to plan and execute the opening weekend for Sound Transit's new light rail line this past July. He worked closely with Sound Transit staff to plan how we would manage the nearly 100,000 people we expected to ride light rail on opening weekend. His work helped us be able to handle the large crowds of families and other visitors with minimal wait times and without any major problems or incidents. David and his team are well organized, creative, and experts at planning and executing events."

— Ron Tober, Sound Transit

The Workshop coordinated multiple stations, with crowd control and security at each stop, trains going both ways, visitors, and entertainment at each station. We worked with local and Federal Agencies, planning for contingency on top of contingency. The launch was a tremendous success.
