As Sound Transit’s North Link light rail station planning moves full speed ahead, we need your help to ensure bicyclists and pedestrians aren’t left behind.
You may have read our previous posts regarding the Northgate Link light rail station area plans (here, here & here), and maybe even attended a past North Link meeting. We’re calling on you again to make sure Sound Transit, King County and the City of Seattle are working together to plan and design all North Link station areas to encourage access by sustainable and healthy modes of transportation — specifically walking, bicycling and transit. In other words, safe and attractive bicycle and pedestrian routes to and from the stations, along with safe and accessible bicycle parking at the stations (with enough capacity to meet future demand), should be a priority as Sound Transit moves forward with its station-area planning for North Link.
