Available transit options include several of our flexible services that have expanded their destinations from rail stations and transit hubs to also serve vaccination sites.

There is a wide range of reduced fares for senior and youth, and for customers with lower incomes or disabilities. Customers with very low incomes may be eligible for a fully-subsidized ORCA LIFT card. Visit the Fares & ORCA page for information.

A weekend Link shuttle bus will operate between SODO & UW stations
During weekends in April, from each Friday evening at 9:00 PM to the end of Sunday service, Link trains will not operate between SODO and University of Washington (UWS) stations while work is done to complete connections for future Northgate and East Link expansion.

During these weekends Metro will operate a Link shuttle bus during regular Link operating hours, serving stops near all of the affected stations.

Regular Link train service will operate as usual in both directions between Angle Lake and SODO stations.
