One year of new connections and community

Publish Date

One is the magic number today!

And not just because our baseball team is one win away from making the playoffs -- it also marks one year since the opening of the new 1 Line connections and U District, Roosevelt and Northgate Stations.

(Well, close enough. The real anniversary is Oct. 2). 

But we loved celebrating the occassion with our passengers and partners this week. Thanks to everyone -- the neighbors, the commuters, the university students and more -- who stopped by for a pastry, a photo, to sign our anniversary banner or just to say hi.

Check out some photos of the events:

Script written on a banner reads " We love public transit."

A special thanks to our community sponsors: Macrina Bakery, Bagel Oasis, Zylberschtein's, Caffe Ladro and Sea Wolf.
