Planning for West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions

The Link Light Rail system is expanding in Seattle!

Sound Transit is building 13 new and expanded light rail stations with service to West Seattle in 2032* and Ballard in 2037-2039*. The West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions (WSBLE) include a new transit tunnel under Downtown and two water crossings. It is the largest transit investment in our city’s history.

The City is planning for the new light rail lines to ensure fast and reliable transit connections between neighborhoods and job centers, and also to enhance our communities as they become more inclusive, affordable, and interconnected destinations.

*For details on WSBLE project delivery dates, refer to Sound Transit's website.
