Service changes

A graphic depicts people transferring between an ST Express bus and a Link light rail train at Northgate.

In the fall of 2021, the Sound Transit Board of Directors approved service increases through our 2022 Service Plan, but changing effects of the pandemic and broad employment trends have since resulted in nationwide transit operator shortages, requiring some ST Express trip cancellations and route suspensions. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and work with our operating partners to understand the scope and duration of these shortages. We appreciate their (and your!) flexibility and collaboration as we work as one region to manage these challenges.

As part of our September 2022 Service Change, we’re reinstating the Sounder’s S-Line midday trip (departing at 10:06 a.m. from Lakewood) and adding another morning trip ( departing at 7:55 a.m. from Seattle).

The 1 Line will keep operating every 8 minutes during peak hours and every 10-15­ minutes during off-peak hours. Check out our blog post on upcoming 1 Line maintenance projects that may affect service over the next six months.

The following changes are planned for September 2022 and go into effect Sept. 17-19:
