[ARCHIVED] Take the East Link Connections survey before March 7th

King County Metro and Sound Transit are embarking on Phase 3 of a three-phase community engagement process for East Link Connections, seeking feedback from Eastside residents and riders on the future bus and Link light rail network. Link light rail will serve 10 new stations in 2023, and changes and improvements are proposed to more than 50 Metro and Sound Transit bus routes to serve riders better. The result of this process will be a service change ordinance that will come to Council for discussion and action mid-summer, prior to planned implementation in Spring 2023. More information can be found on the Metro Matters blog here.

Building on what was learned in Phases 1 and 2, Metro and Sound Transit have launched a new Proposed Network SurveyChanges incorporate public feedback from riders and residents from fall 2021 and the public is invited to weigh in on the refined proposals. The survey is open now and will close March 7.
