Learn and comment about the new station design and amenities, project refinements, new travel times, ways to reach stations on foot or bicycle, and much more! The online open house will remain open until February 14, 2020. Your feedback will help us to continue to refine our project.

I-405 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) connects communities along I-405 and SR 518 from Lynnwood to Burien. With buses running as often as every 10 minutes, this new service connects to Link light rail at Lynnwood, Bellevue and Tukwila as well as to other transit service provided by Sound Transit, Community Transit and King County Metro. The project includes a new transit center in South Renton and 10 BRT stations, three of which add parking, for a total of 1,300 new spaces. I-405 BRT builds upon the Washington State Department of Transportation's I-405 Master Plan with roadway improvements for faster travel.

What is BRT?

Sound Transit's Stride Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a new fast, frequent and reliable bus service connecting to light rail and to communities north, east and south of Lake Washington. Like a train, BRT is designed for fast arrivals and departures including off-board fare payment and multiple-door entry and exit. New bus lanes and transit priority improvements help riders avoid traffic and travel faster. Many stations include expanded parking. BRT also includes a new bus maintenance base in Bothell to guarantee a safe, clean and comfortable ride for Sound Transit bus riders.
