I just looked up University Link at Sound Transit. The line will open for business in 2016. Four more years yet! Too long!
Last night I had to wait three buses to get home from the Sounders match, and the one I got was still standing room only the whole trip home. If we had University Link, all the students who were on the buses (I’m guessing 95% of the three busloads) would have been on light rail.
