Patience is a virtue, & we are grateful you have it!

Is your New Year’s resolution to practice patience? We can tell!

Link light rail trains are running every 13-15 minutes. We know that waiting longer for trains can be a pain, which is why we’re working with Sound Transit to do all we can to make sure trains stay on schedule.

For the most part, we’ve been blown away by Link rider’s patience and generosity to others as they navigate Connect 2020 schedule changes.

What helps you practice your patience?

Taking deep breaths, knowing that you planned an extra 30 minutes into your commute so you’re not stressed about time, people watching, doing small acts of kindness, drinking extra water, or killing time on your phone?

If you’re like many transit riders, there’s a good chance you’re staring at your phone – maybe even reading this blog post as you wait for a train. If that’s you, take this time that you’re killing to fill out our Seattle Squeeze Survey and let us know how construction in downtown Seattle impacts your commute.
