All aboard — as Sound Transit gets ready to open its Eastside Link Light Rail line on April 27, it dropped some other big news — four new stations on the 1 Line will open on August 30.

The 8.5-mile extension north will include the Shoreline South/148th, Shoreline North/185th, Mountlake Terrace, and Lynnwood stations that have been under construction since 2019.

Once operating, service will run every four to six minutes during peak travel times and every eight minutes during other times of the day. Those traveling from Lynnwood to SeaTac will be able to do so in approx. one hour.

The Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood Stations will be the light rail’s first dip into Snohomish County and the last until it reaches Everett — a major milestone for the expansion project. However, Everett service isn’t slated to begin until 2037.
