Starting this October, Snohomish County transit riders will get their first direct connection to regional light rail. All Community Transit 800-series bus routes and three Sound Transit bus routes will connect to the 1 Line light rail at the new Northgate Station (Sound Transit is changing the name of Link light rail to 1 Line).
People traveling to the University of Washington, downtown Seattle or anywhere along the 1 Line can take any of these routes to connect to light rail: 511, 512, 513, 810, 821, 860, 871, or 880. Light rail travel time from Northgate to the U District is expected to take six minutes, and the trip from Northgate to downtown Seattle is expected to take 14 minutes.
There are 48 new trips added to the 800-route schedules for frequent connections from light rail back to Snohomish County.
Community Transit 400-series routes and Sound Transit Route 510 will continue to provide direct bus service between Snohomish County and downtown Seattle.
