Link Light Rail service will be partially disrupted this weekend, per an annoucement from Sound Transit:
Link light rail service will temporarily stop running between the UW and SODO stations Saturday, October 17, and Sunday, October 18 to allow for system upgrades.
During the service interruption, free bus service will be available between UW station and SODO station. Light rail riders will need to switch between trains and buses at SODO station stations [sic] to complete their journeys. Sound Transit will provide shuttle buses every ten minutes between the affected stations, and Sound Transit personnel will be available to help passengers with transfers. Trains will run every 15 minutes on the weekend. Light rail trains will return to their regular schedule Monday morning.
Other alternatives to get to or between the northern station areas include:
- Route 7 between Mt Baker Station and downtown.
- Route 36 between Beacon Hill Station and downtown.
- Route 48 between Mt Baker Station and UW.
- Route 10, 11, or 49 between Westlake and Capitol Hill.
- Route 49 between Capitol Hill and the U-District.
- Route 60 between Beacon Hill Station and Capitol Hill.
- Route 70 between downtown and the U-District.
- Route 101, 150, or ST Express 594 between SODO Station, Stadium Station, and downtown.
Any work Sound Transit has to do on Link is certainly best to do on weekends during the pandemic, while there are the fewest riders to be impacted.
