Metro and Sound Transit are working together to plan the integration of buses and light rail into an efficient transit system for riders. Starting in 2023, Sound Transit’s East Link light rail extension will connect Seattle and Mercer Island with major population and employment centers on the Eastside, including Bellevue, Bel-Red and Redmond.
Bus and light rail service will connect at regional transit hubs, including the future Mercer island and South Bellevue light rail stations. Riders will transfer from buses to link to continue their trips to downtown Seattle, and from Link to buses to reach Eastside destinations not served directly by light rail.
Metro and Sound Transit will host and open house in Issaquah to provide information about this concept and hear your thoughts.
The open house will be 6-8 p.m. Aug. 12 with a presentation at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1800 N.W. Gilman Blvd., Issaquah.
