Seattle’s Sound Transit announced the initial segment of its Link 2 Line will open to passenger service on April 27.

The 6.5-mile segment of the East Link Extension includes eight new stations in Bellevue and Redmond. The initial segment will terminate at the South Bellevue Station at the west end, and the Redmond Technology Station on the east. Two-car trains will run every 10 minutes, 16 hours a day.

“The 2 Line is the product of the sustained commitment of project partners and community members, and years of hard work by Sound Transit staff and contractors,” said Sound Transit Interim CEO Goran Sparrman. “Having worked on the East Link project with the City of Bellevue in the planning phase, I’m excited to see the project moving toward opening.”

East Link Extension Impact

The full 2 Line is expected to open in 2025. Completion of the 1-90 segment of East Link was delayed by quality issues, which are currently being corrected.

When completed, the I-90 segment will add the Mercer Island and Judkins Park stations to the 2 Line and connect to the 1 Line at the International District/Chinatown Station in downtown Seattle. The Downtown Redmond Link Extension is also scheduled to open in 2025 with the Marymoor Village and Downtown Redmond stations completing the 2 Line.

Service will run from 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., seven days a week and will connect with the regional transit network at South Bellevue, Bellevue Downtown, and Redmond Technology stations.
