Improved access to I-405 for transit, a new transit center and additional park-and-ride spaces are all being evaluated for Kirkland as part of the implementation of Sound Move, the 10-year regional transit plan approved by voters in 1996. 

Sound Transit, the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority, invites Kirkland residents and interested Eastsiders to participate in a public meeting to discuss project alternatives and identify the scope of environmental concerns that should be studied during the formal environmental review that begins in April. 

Wednesday, March 17
5 to 7:30 p.m.

Kirkland Senior Center
352 Kirkland Avenue

The Kirkland Senior Center is adjacent to the Kirkland Performance Center. The facility is ADA accessible and is served by Metro bus routes 230, 251, 254 and 255. For more information about the Kirkland projects or to be added to the project mailing list, please call the Kirkland project answer line at 425-519-5368. 

The Kirkland projects are among approximately 100 transit improvement projects being implemented by Sound Transit to improve public access to local and regional transit services. Sound Transit will inaugurate service in September on the first eight of 17 regional express bus routes and will begin Sounder commuter rail service between Tacoma and Seattle by the end of the year. The agency is also developing the Link light rail system to connect the cities of SeaTac, Tukwila and Seattle.
