Link Light Rail will not be reaching the south peninsula transit service area anytime soon, but the two Metro downtown bus routes (125, 131) that serve Highland Park may be impacted by the light rail extension into West Seattle.

To ensure that your transportation questions and concerns are addressed, be sure to attend the West Seattle and Ballard Link Light Rail Extensions Neighborhood Forum to be held at the Masonic Lodge (4736 40th Ave SW, 98116) in West Seattle on May 5, 2018 from 10am to 12:30pm.

Be Prepared!
A catastrophic emergency in our region coupled with Seattle’s unique geography may render transportation and communication infrastructure unusable, effectively isolating many neighborhoods within the city.

To prepare for such an event, the Seattle Emergency Communications Hubsand Seattle Auxiliary Communication Service will hold a full-city simulated power outage exercise on April 28, 2018 from 9am to 12pm, with three locations located within West Seattle. To volunteer or participate, find more information here.
