On Nov. 12, King County Metro invited Kirkland and Bellevue transit riders and residents to take a survey to tell Metro where they want to see RapidRide bus service from Kirkland to Bellevue.

Metro is looking for specific feedback on route options between Totem Lake, downtown Kirkland and the South Kirkland Park-and-Ride.

In 2025 Metro plans for RapidRide K-Line service to connect Eastside riders between communities and to Sound Transit’s link light rail Blue Line, I-405 Bus Rapid Transit and the RapidRide B Line, according to a press release. Metro is developing RapidRide K-Line service for riders in the communities between Totem Lake, downtown Kirkland, downtown Bellevue and Eastgate.

By connecting with Kirkland and Bellevue residents, riders and businesses now, Metro is hoping to further understand the community’s needs and priorities for future service, the release states. This fall, community input will help Metro make decisions about the path RapidRide K Line will travel between Totem Lake, downtown Kirkland, and south Kirkland Park-and-Ride; establishing potential RapidRide K-Line route and station locations; other projects, such as dedicated bus lanes, added crosswalks and improved roadways that improve bus speed and reliability and enhance safety for those who travel in the area; and additional projects that work to improve access to transit by making it easier, safer or more convenient to get to — or wait for — the bus.

How does the community get involved?

The community can get involved if riders take Metro’s survey, share Metro use, talk with Metro in the community, attend a Metro-hosted information-table meeting and/or visit the project website.
