King County Metro and Sound Transit are considering service changes to routes that go across State Route 520 to keep buses moving and make them more reliable (on-time) by connecting them with Link light rail at the University of Washington.

The affected routes include King County Metro 252, 255, 257, 268, 277 and 311, and Sound Transit 540, 541, 542, and 545.

This spring, Metro and Sound Transit gathered community input to create some concepts for future service. Now, the organizations are asking riders to tell them what they think about those concepts in a variety of ways, from an online survey to community conversations across the affected area, including in Kirkland.

The first Kirkland community conversation will be held from 6-8 p.m. June 14 at Kirkland City Hall, 123 Fifth Ave. Another will be held from 6-8 p.m. June 26 at Kingsgate Library, 12315 N.E. 143rd St. Other community conversations are planned in Redmond and Seattle.

For more information about the concepts, community conversations, to take the online survey or sign up to receive email updates, visit kingcounty.gov/depts/transportation/metro/programs-projects/link-connections/sr-520.aspx.
