Oh the places you can go from Northgate Station!

Fast trips headed to Northgate, Roosevelt and U District!

Publish Date

With new stations at Northgate, Roosevelt and U District neighborhoods set to open on Oct. 2, we've seen a lot of questions about travel times to/from these new destinations. 

By extending light rail from its current end at University of Washington Station, riders will have a whole new reliable way to bypass some of the worst traffic in the region!

How does eight minutes from Roosevelt to Capitol Hill sound? Or how about 10 minutes from downtown (University Street) to the U District? Twenty minutes from Northgate to the stadiums? 

Check out the table below to see all the travel times systemwide and bookmark this page to keep your trip times handy!
