University of Washington Station

Located right next to the new Husky Stadium, Sound Transit's University of Washington Station will provide easy regional access to campus, UW Medical Center, other Husky athletic sites and surrounding neighborhoods. A new pedestrian bridge allows walkers and bikers to avoid traffic and will alleviate congestion by directly connecting the underground station to upper campus and the Burke-Gilman trail.
