Link light rail to increase frequency starting June 12

Will run every eight minutes during peak hours rather than every 12 minutes

With the region’s continuing recovery from the pandemic, Sound Transit will improve Link light rail service frequencies starting Saturday, June 12.

Link will run every eight minutes during peak hours and every 10 minutes during midday and weekends. During late evenings, Link will run every 15 minutes.

Currently, Link runs every 12 minutes during peak hours and every 15 minutes during off-peak hours, with frequency every 30 minutes late evenings. ST Express service and Sounder service remain unchanged.

“The days are longer, the weather is warmer, the virus is retreating, and we are all venturing out more and more. In the coming months as more and more people return to normal routines, expanded Link service will help riders get back to enjoying fast and congestion-free trips,” said Sound Transit CEO Peter Rogoff in a June 4 news release. “With traffic congestion worsening and already at pre-pandemic levels, the benefits of Link will only keep growing, especially with our Oct. 2 expansion of service northward to the U District, Roosevelt and Northgate.”

In accordance with an order from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all Sound Transit passengers must continue to wear face coverings consistent on vehicles and in stations. The agency estimates that nearly all passengers have been complying with the requirement. Transit Riders should also follow social distancing and other critical health guidelines to protect the community.

For trip planning assistance or other questions, contact Customer Service at 888-889-6368, TTY Relay 711, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Riders can sign up to receive automatic email service alerts for Link light rail, ST Express, Tacoma Link, Sounder Seattle-Everett and Sounder Seattle-Tacoma/Lakewood.
