The new U District Link Light Rail Station is scheduled to open in 2021. This is an exciting investment in our neighborhood that will significantly change the way many people get around. The U District Mobility Group, a community-led effort of neighbors, stakeholders, public agencies and nonprofit organizations, is holding a series of community workshops to collect community members’ ideas on barriers, opportunities, and potential solutions. The goal is a community-driven, holistic, multimodal U District station area mobility plan.
The new UW light rail station is on schedule to open in early 2016, but Sound Transit is giving you a chance to virtually ride the route today, in the driver's seat. The agency has uploaded a video showing the tunnel during a test run from the new Capitol Hill station to the UW light rail station.
