Link gets closer to opening on the Eastside with daily train testing

Trips between South Bellevue and Redmond Technology stations will take 16 traffic-free minutes when the 2 Line begins operating. Until then, you may see test trains running! Remember to be careful around train tracks; trains can be coming at any time, from either direction. Be aware of your surroundings, follow traffic signals and cross only at designated locations.
