Public Meeting Announcement & New Sounder Service
SOUTH KING COUNTY LIGHT RAIL EXTENTION OPEN HOUSE
Sound Transit is holding two open houses on the South King County Des Moines/Federal Way Link Extension. The first is on September 13th in Federal Way and the second is on September 16th in Des Moines. These public meetings will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the project, as well as provide input on the new light rail stations near Kent Des Moines road, S 272nd Street & I-5 and the Federal Way Transit Center. If you are unable to attend, you can fill out this online survey by September 22nd.
NEW SOUNDER TRAIN SERVICE
Starting September 25th, the south Sounder line between Seattle and Lakewood will be adding two new roundtrips. These new times will ease congestion on trains, and offer residents of South King County more transportation options. You can find more information on the new schedule here.
PARTNERSHIP WITH UBER FOR SOUTH KING COUNTY RIDERS
Starting September 5th, Sound Transit and Uber are partnering to offer discounted Uber rides to or from select light rail stations (Beacon Hill through Angle Lake). By entering the promo code TRANSIT in the Uber app, riders can save $3.50 on UberX or UberPOOL rides from the Link light rail station. This effort to make transportation more accessible will go until January 5th, 2018. More information can be found here.
