Bus Stops and 1 Line Station information to make your bus-to-light rail connection

On October 2, 2021, 1 Line light rail's Northgate Station opens. Community Transit and Sound Transit buses (800-series and Routes 512, 511, and 513) will no longer serve direct routes to the University of Washington and downtown Seattle. Instead, buses from Snohomish County will take riders to Northgate Station where they can connect to 1 Line light rail.

To help bus riders, we've created two tables that show the stops buses used to serve and the exit to use when using 1 Line light rail to UW and downtown Seattle.

  • U District and UW-area transfers
  • Downtown Seattle destinations
