What will change when Link comes to Capitol Hill and the UW?
This is the question that Sound Transit and King County Metro are starting to ask.
Beginning in 2016, Link Light Rail will connect Downtown Seattle with Capitol Hill and the University of Washington at Husky Stadium. This new subway service will provide Sound Transit and King County Metro the opportunity to make changes and adjustments to bus service in the neighborhoods surrounding the light rail stations.
With this opportunity in mind, Sound Transit and King County Metro are looking to the public for their input, ideas, and suggestions.
Representatives from the transit agencies will be conducting eight information sessions between November 6th and November 20th at the following locations:
|Thurs, Nov. 6||11:00am||Street Team: eastbound bus stops on Stevens Way|
|2:30pm||Street Team: Campus Parkway & Brooklyn|
|Wed, Nov. 12||3:00pm||Street Team: Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel, Westlake Station-Bay A|
|Thurs, Nov. 13||7:00am||Street Team: Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel, Int’l District Station-Bay A|
|6:00pm||Link Connections: Community Conversation|
|Mon, Nov. 17||6:00pm||Link Connections: Community Conversation|
|Wed, Nov. 19||10:00am||Info Table: University of Washington Medical Center|
|Thurs, Nov. 20||11:30am||Link Connections: Community Conversation|
If you are unable to attend any of these information sessions, King County Metro has an online survey that you may fill out.
