Feet First Recommendations for West Seattle and Ballard Light Rail Extensions

SAFA logo


Feet First has been working to make Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail system more walkable for more than a decade. Our Sound Access for All (SAfA) campaign was a major part of the effort to build the Northgate bridge, connecting the Northgate station across I-5 to North Seattle College.

As Sound Transit gears up for the projects funded by the ST3 measure, the SAfA team has been out walking and talking, and thinking and writing, about the West Seattle to Ballard segments (including the SoDo, CID, downtown, SLU, and Uptown portions in between). This effort has resulted  in a report (download) that Feet First has shared with Sound Transit, and we think it is important reading for everyone interested in making it easy to walk to light rail. The “regional spine” needs to be easily accessible to everyone.
