Federal Way Transit Extension
Sound Transit is evaluating alternatives to expand high capacity transit from SeaTac to Federal Way. The corridor being studied extends approximately 7.6 miles south to Federal Way from the future Angle Lake light rail station at S. 200th in SeaTac.
Sound Transit is in the process of delivering major voter-approved high capacity transit investments throughout the region. The national recession has significantly reduced funding, including a projected 41 percent reduction in South King County revenues through 2023. Currently, there is sufficient funding to extend light rail to Kent/Des Moines.
The planning and environmental process for this project will establish a shovel-ready plan for extending service to the Federal Way Transit Center in the event additional funding is identified.
