In partnership with the City of Seattle, more trips will be added on key bus routes beginning March 23. Metro is encouraging riders to study new stop locations in downtown Seattle when 15 routes are redirected onto different city streets and all buses shift out of the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT) in preparation for opening regional light rail extensions. To keep service moving more easily for customers, Metro is launching all-door boarding on Third Avenue.
Sound Transit has identified six potential sites in South King County for a new Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF) to serve the expansion of congestion-free light rail service in the Puget Sound.
Sound Transit today previewed construction plans for early 2020 that will connect the existing light rail system in downtown Seattle to Mercer Island, Bellevue and Redmond, with service beginning in 2023.
