  • Capacity at the temporary lot is reduced from 50 to 19 stalls.
  • When the new P&R opens in 2013, the 50 stall capacity will be restored.

The Mt Baker Link Station elevator to & from the southbound platform is out of service. The northbound platform elevator is operating.

  •  Until repairs are made, southbound passengers who require the use of the elevator should ride instead north to Beacon Hill and transfer to a southbound train.
  • Southbound passengers who want to exit at Mt Baker should ride to Columbia City & transfer to a northbound train.
