Shuttle buses will be available for riders from start of service until 9 a.m.

Publish Date

Link light rail 1 Line service will temporarily stop running between the SODO and Westlake stations Sunday, June 4 from start of service until 9 a.m. This will allow the Washington State Department of Transportation to conduct routine inspections of area bridges over the light rail tracks.

During the service interruption, light rail riders will need to switch between trains and buses at Westlake and SODO stations to complete their journeys. Trains will be running every 15 minutes between Northgate-Westlake and SODO-Angle Lake stations. Sound Transit will provide shuttle buses between the affected stations running every 10-15 minutes, and Sound Transit personnel will be available to help passengers with transfers. Light rail trains are expected to return to their regular Sunday schedule at approximately 9 a.m. 

Passengers traveling through the area should allow for additional time for their trip. Information about alternative routes that passengers may want to consider is available on our website

A language line is available to provide translation assistance for limited English proficiency persons at 800-823-9230.

Sound Transit remains committed to working closely with its partners to continue serving the public. Efforts will continue to prioritize serving riders who depend on Sound Transit’s services, including seniors, people with disabilities, Title VI protected populations (race, color, national origin), low-income, and limited-English-proficiency populations.
