ST3 in Bellevue
The voter approved Sound Transit 3 (ST3) measure will bring bus, light rail and parking projects to the Eastside. These projects will connect Eastside cities with other Eastside cities, as well as to Downtown Seattle via the East Link light rail extension, which is currently under construction in Bellevue.
