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.
Service begins: Expected 2016
Rider projection: By the year 2030, approximately 25,000 riders will board light rail trains daily at the University of Washington Station.
Fact: Sound Transit will plant more than 200 trees near Husky Stadium
