About this project 
Partnering with King County Metro, we plan to make improvements to this vital transit corridor. Our project objectives are to make bus trips faster and more reliable, and to make it safer and easier to access transit.

The need for improvements to the Route 40 were first identified as part of the Levy to Move Seattle and King County Metro's METRO CONNECTS program. Based on results of the 2018 Levy Workplan Report, Route 40 will not be transitioned to RapidRide during this project. However, improvements will be designed to align with potential future RapidRide expansion.
With 3 million annual rides, King County Metro's Route 40 has the third-highest ridership of all of Metro’s bus lines. Running north to south, Route 40 is 13.5 miles long and passes through the neighborhoods of Northgate, Crown Hill, Loyal Heights, Ballard, Fremont, South Lake Union, Downtown Seattle, and Pioneer Square.

What’s happening now?  
This project is nearing the end of the planning phase and will be entering the early design phase (30% design). Selected concepts will move forward to final design and construction, with construction work scheduled to begin in 2023 and to be complete early 2025.

How will we use your feedback? 
The input you provide will be shared with the design team as they transition into the design phase for each concept. This survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete. We appreciate your time and feedback.
