Northgate Link Expansion:

      • Community Transit will redirect its 800-series bus routes to connect to the 1 Line (Link) at Northgate Station instead of going to the U District and University of Washington.
      • Making this connection allows Community Transit to add 48 trips to its 800-series routes, mostly to improve bus frequency back to Snohomish County in the afternoon and evening.
      • Sound Transit Routes 511, 512, and 513 that currently run between Everett and Seattle will also connect to light rail at Northgate. People traveling to the UW, downtown Seattle or anywhere along the 1 Line can use any of these routes to connect to light rail.
      • Route 512 will begin serving Northgate on Saturday, Oct. 2. The other routes mentioned above will start serving Northgate on Monday, Oct. 4.
      • Community Transit 400-series routes and Sound Transit Route 510 will continue to provide direct bus service between Snohomish County and downtown Seattle
