Light rail is coming to Northgate in 2021
The Northgate Link Extension adds three new Link light rail stations at Northgate, Roosevelt and the U District. When these new stations open in 2021, people will be able to connect to Link at Northgate and enjoy fast, reliable service to downtown Seattle, the University of Washington, Sea-Tac Airport and many more destinations around the region.
Connecting buses to Link light rail
Sound Transit and Community Transit are working together to adjust bus routes so that Snohomish County residents can take advantage of this new transit option. Our ideas include ending some bus routes at Northgate, where riders could transfer to Link. We're receptive to feedback, and there's room for change as we design routes. Here's what we are thinking:
- Community Transit routes that currently run on I-5 to the U District would connect to Link at Northgate instead.
- ST Express routes that currently run to and from Snohomish County on I-5 to downtown Seattle would connect to Link at Northgate instead.
- Community Transit routes that serve downtown Seattle would continue to do so.
