King County Metro and SDOT are hosting an online open house to get public feedback on improvements on the Route 40 Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor project. We are hosting a virtual meeting on Tuesday, June 30 from 5 – 6 PM to share what we’ve heard so far to improve the Route 40 and outline our initial concept ideas.
Prior to COVID-19, Route 40 was one of Metro’s highest ridership routes, serving some of the busiest parts of Seattle including South Lake Union, Fremont, Ballard, Aurora, and Northgate neighborhoods. As part of the Route 40 Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor Project, your feedback will help make corridor improvements to Route 40 to make it faster and more reliable.
Thank you to those who completed our online survey in March of this year! We had over 1,000 responses and have compiled your feedback, along with feedback from Metro drivers, to evaluate how best to improve Route 40. At our online event, we’ll share what we heard and how we are incorporating those comments into the initial design concepts. We are excited to hear more ideas and thoughts from you about this critical transit route.
We are in the early planning phase of the Route 40 Transit Plus Multimodal Corridor project, with construction anticipated for completion in 2024.
Join us on Tuesday, June 30 at 5 PM to learn more about the potential improvements and share your feedback with us!

The #40 is the worst-ran, least-reliable and most-late bus in the entire King County Metro system. Over the years I have taken this bus from every stop, every direction, at every time and it is -never- not once on time.
It’s not possible to lower the back door. If you need that come to the front door and ask the driver to lower the bus…
40 Bus Comment: PLEASE ask drivers to lower step at door in rear of bus when getting OFF the bus. HAZARD for SENIORS to step down a long distance when getting OFF the rear door of the bus. Especially if carrying groceries.
That’s really what I meant: “Lower the Bus” so seniors don’t have to injure themselves while exiting the far rear-door of the bus. It is a “hazardous” step down if you have groceries.
