Beginning September 2018, the Rainier Freeway Station will be closed due to East Link light rail construction on the Judkins Park Station. The following routes will be affected until operation begins in 2023:
Sound Transit: 550 and 554
King County Metro: 111, 114, 212, 214, 216, 217, 218, 219
While these routes will continue to serve downtown Seattle, they will either bypass the Rainer Freeway Station or serve stops at different locations on Rainier Avenue. Routes that serve Rainier Avenue from the Eastside will exit I-90 at Rainier, and continue downtown via surface streets. There will be no changes to bus routing on the Eastside.
