Redmond is preparing for the extension of light rail to Downtown by conducting a bus-rail transit integration study. The study will recommend how best to integrate light rail transit into Downtown Redmond so that light rail is safely, conveniently and efficiently accessible by transit, walking, and biking, while accommodating vehicle access for pickup and drop-off.
The study will recommend a preliminary preferred station area concept for the Downtown Redmond light rail station. The preferred concept will maximize station access to increase mobility and grow transit ridership while minimizing the station footprint in order to limit the impacts on other land uses and activities in Downtown.
Public Input Summary
- Memo to City Council addressing bus + rail planning public input and station area concepts
- Downtown Bus + Rail Planning public input summary
These visualizations are intended to give a sense of the experience an individual may have when arriving at and using the light rail station in each of the four concepts. White or color background blocks in the background are included only to acknowledge that there are existing buildings in Downtown and are not intended to portray any actual structures now or in the future. An advertisement was added yesterday; just X it out.
- Station area concepts: - West At Grade, 2 - West Elevated, 3 - East Elevated, 4 - East At Grade
- Example images: elevated stations/guideways, at grade stations/guideways
- Evaluation results: location (west or east), profile (at grade or elevated)
- Slide presentation from January 26 meeting
