Mass transit is coming. What are your thoughts?

How people want to see mass transit (such as light rail) extended from Northgate to Lynnwood–including via Mountlake Terrace–is the subject of three public meetings being held by Sound Transit.

There will be three seperate meetings and Sound Transit hopes that you will be able to make one of them.

Oct. 7 North Seattle
Ingraham High School
1819 N. 135th St., Seattle 98133

Oct. 12 Lynnwood
Lynnwood Convention Center
3711 196th St. S.W., Lynnwood 98036

Oct. 14 Shoreline
Shoreline Conference Center
18560 1st Ave. N.E., Shoreline 98155

The meetings will be held from 6 to 8:30 pm, with a presentation at 6:45. Comments about where the future service should go and the location of stations are welcome.

There are 4 basic ideas that Sound Transit would like to explore with the public:

  • Potential areas that may be served by future stations
  • Project purpose and schedule
  • Criteria for reviewing alternatives
  • General ideas about potential transit modes and routes to serve the corridor

This is part of the process necessary for Sound Transit to qualify for significant federal grants. The federal grants are needed to help pay for the full cost of light rail, as approved by voters to go north from Northgate through Mountlake Terrace to Lynnwood. Meanwhile key staff from our Community and Economic Development Department met this week with Sound Transit, Community Transit, and several cities to continue the planning process.

  1. Love the idea of having mass transit come through Mountlake Terrace. I will be so nice to be able to take Light Rail all the way to the Airport, and not have to use things such as Shuttle Express. I’m looking forward to it in the coming years.

  2. I will take it every day to the UW – it can’t get here fast enough! I think I would visit downtown Seattle more often with LLR. I know my downtown friends would come up more often with LLR.
