Link Connections

Link is coming to Capitol Hill and Husky Stadium in early 2016. Metro and Sound Transit are working with the public to plan how bus service will connect with new light rail.

The King County Council is considering recommended bus service changes (detailed here) that would begin after Link light rail reaches Capitol Hill and the University District in the first quarter of 2016.

UPDATE 10/1/15: Metro presented an overview of the recommended changes to the Transportation, Economy, and Environment (TrEE) Committee earlier this week. Here are some new ways to learn about what’s being proposed:

King County Executive Dow Constantine has proposed new Metro bus connections to get people to fast, frequent Link trains from North Seattle, Capitol Hill, and the Central Area. The proposal would also provide more frequent bus service on major corridors in those areas, and more east-west service between places like Fremont, Wallingford, Green Lake and Sand Point.
