Route 40 – Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor
Partnering with King County Metro, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) plans to make improvements to this vital transit corridor.
The objectives of the project are to reduce transit travel times, improve transit reliability, and increase safety and transit access along the Route 40 corridor. SDOT has a goal of reducing peak transit travel times by 5% to 10% during peak hours and making the time between buses more consistent so no matter the time of day, trips take about the same amount of time. Improvements made as part of this Transit-Plus Multimodal Corridor project will include:
- Dedicated bus lanes: Bus-only lanes that separate buses from traffic and improve transit travel times and reliability
- Signal upgrades or optimization: Transit signal priority extends or activates green lights to reduce waiting times for buses at signals
- Channelization changes or turn restrictions: Changes to roadway channelization and limiting certain turns that can allow buses to move faster, avoid conflicts, and improve safety
- Safety improvements: Improvements to crossings and transit connections to help people get to bus stops more easily and safely
- Sidewalk upgrades: Repaving sidewalks and upgrading ADA-accessible curb ramps in key locations
