The Link Light Rail 2 Line is a light rail line operated by Sound Transit in King County, WA. Operations and maintenance for the 2 line are under contract to King County Metro. The line runs on the East Link extension, and will connect with the 1 Line at International District/Chinatown Station and interline with it up to Lynnwood City Center station once the I-90 section of the extension is opened.

Route Details

The initial route on the Starter Line starts with South Bellevue Station at the western end and heads north along Bellevue Way and 112th Ave SE. Between East Main Bellevue Downtown stations, the line heads through a tunnel under Downtown Bellevue, passing over I-405 immediately after Bellevue Downtown and briefly following the Eastrail alignment before turning east along Spring Blvd, in a trench at Spring District station before moving to a street-running median alignment at 130th Ave. After the section of street-running ends at the intersection of 136th Pl NE and NE 20th St, the line follows SR-520 for the rest of the line to the eastern terminus at Redmond Technology Station.
