Good news, Link riders: light rail frequency will increase starting June 12. 

Link will run every eight minutes during peak hours and every 10 minutes during midday and weekends to help passengers get where they want to go - and return to their normal routines. 

During late evenings, Link will run every 15 minutes.

Currently, Link runs every 12 minutes during peak hours and every 15 minutes during off-peak hours, with frequency every 30 minutes in late evenings.

ST Express service and Sounder service remain unchanged.

We're excited to see you back onboard as our region continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and as we get closer to opening three new stations at U District, Roosevelt and Northgate on Oct. 2.

We're doing our part to keep you safe on trains and buses. Do yours by continuing to wear a mask! 

With traffic now at pre-pandemic levels, Link provides a safe and reliable alternative to endless highway congestion. It's also your free ride to your vaccine appointment!

We're here when you're ready to ride again.
