Sound Transit making service changes starting Saturday

Sound Transit is making service changes starting Saturday, Sound Transit said in a news release on Thursday.

ST Express 511, which travels between Ash Way and Northgate, will be replaced with an all-day ST Express 512 service between Everett Station and Northgate Station.

Sound Transit said this will give riders more transfer opportunities to the 1 Line during peak hours.

The other change will be to ST Express 586, which travels from Tacoma to the University District. Federal Way Transit Center buses will now use Bay 2 when traveling northbound.

The Sounder service will also have some changes. Sounder S Line will get schedule adjustments to trains #1505 (7:55 a.m., Seattle Departure) and #1518 (10:11 a.m., Lakewood Departure).

Now that Amtrak has restored two Cascades Trains, Sounder N Line passengers will have more options at Everett, Edmonds, and Seattle through the Rail Plus program.

The service change dates are:

  • Saturday, March 18, King County Metro-operated ST Express.
  • Sunday, March 19, Community Transit-operated and Pierce Transit-operated ST Express.
  • Monday, March 20, Sounder.

There are no changes to Link or Tacoma Link service.
