Metro needs your input on proposed route changes for North Link Connections Mobility Project

Post Date:01/23/2020 10:23 am

Metro has an opportunity to significantly improve the current transit network in north King County with the opening of the three new Link light rail stations in north Seattle in 2021.  Feedback gathered during Phase 1 helped Metro better understand the mobility needs and priorities in north King County.

From what Metro heard, some themes became visible including:

  • Improving east-west connections to move people across town. 
  • Ensuring that travel time is either faster or stays the same. 
  • Improving connections to hospitals and medical facilities like Seattle Children’s Hospital, the University of Washington Medical Center, and facilities on First Hill. 
  • Improving connection to new markets like South Lake Union. 
  • Ensuring that transfers bus to bus and bus to Link light rail are easy to understand and easy to do.

During Phase 2, Metro wants to hear your feedback on the proposed changes. To learn more and to take a survey to provide feedback, visit Metro's North Link Connections Mobility Project webpage
