Sound Transit University Link Opens

As Passenger Transport went to press, Sound Transit was scheduled to introduce service on its University Link Extension, a 3.1-mile light rail line with two new stations: University of Washington, shown, and Capitol Hill. With the March 19 launch, the $1.8 billion project will open six months ahead of schedule and $200 million under budget. The new line is an extension from downtown Seattle to the University of Washington, with stations in the dense Capitol Hill neighborhood and adjacent to the UW Husky Stadium and UW Medical Center; it provides connections to both downtown Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
