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.
