2023 Routes to Rails
Light rail is coming to Redmond, with four new stations planned in the next two years: Overlake Village and Redmond Technology stations through East Link and Marymoor Village and Downtown Redmond stations through the Downtown Redmond Link Extension. These stations will connect Redmond to the greater regional transit network and other Eastside destinations, but more importantly, they will provide seamless connections between four Redmond neighborhoods.
To prepare for the light rail opening, the City wants to understand how you will travel to and from the stations.
- What could the City of Redmond do to help you leave your car at home and walk, roll, or bike in these station areas?
- If you already walk, roll, or bike in these communities, what would improve your experience?
Based on your input, the City will implement a community-selected pilot project in early summer 2023 that improves access to one of the future stations. A pilot project could be anything from a new crosswalk to a trail connection to a protected bike lane to a new parklet.
Share your feedback with us through March 15. Tell us where you have had challenges in the future station areas, such as feeling unsafe at intersections or experiencing missing sidewalks, as well as which community destinations are most important to you.
