NE 130th St. Sound Transit Station Decision
- Would ensure better access for Lake City and Bitter Lake / Broadview riders. The 130th/125th corridor has far greater capacity and shorter distance to Lake City and Bitter Lake, two underserved and dense communities in the northernmost part of Seattle. A new bus route could easily and efficiently serve both communities with quick access to light rail without the delays and congestion on NE 145th and Northgate Way.
- Promote more walking and biking to light rail. Many Haller Lake and Pinehurst commuters in the walkshed of a NE 130th station would easily be able to walk to light rail at NE 130th when they would otherwise need to drive or take a bus to the Northgate or NE 145th stations. This would reduce pressure on demand for building expensive parking garages at both the Northgate and NE 145th stations.
- Would increase ridership on LINK light rail.
