In response to increases in ridership, Sound Transit is planning to add service across its system for its September service change.
Trains on Link light rail, starting Sept. 19, will run every eight minutes during peak hours on weekdays. Trains will run every 15 minutes on weekends and off peak on weekdays, and every 30 minutes on evenings.
Sound Transit hopes to continue to operate these levels of service stably through the next service change, in March 2021. The agency will launch public outreach for its proposed 2021 service plan in the coming weeks.
Passengers can see full details of the September service changes at soundtransit.org/servicechange.
Effective Sept. 21, Sounder South weekday service, which includes stops in Kent, will increase to nine round trips from seven round trips. The northbound trips that will be suspended are the 1514, 1518, 1520 and 1522 departures from Tacoma. The suspended southbound trips will be the 1501, 1505, 1507 and 1509 departures from Seattle. Passengers should note that in some cases the suspended trains will differ from the trains currently suspended and should plan their trips accordingly.
