Sound Transit in September will add service to its Link light-rail and Sounder commuter-rail systems in response to an uptick in ridership during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Seattle agency announced earlier this week. 

Beginning Sept. 19, light-rail trains will run every eight minutes during peak hours on weekdays. Trains will run every 15 minutes on weekends and off peak on weekdays, and every 30 minutes on evenings. In May, the Link ran trains every 20 minutes during the day.

On Sept. 21, Sound Transit also will add two roundtrips to its weekday Sounder South schedule, increasing the service from seven round trips to nine. There will be no changes to Sounder North service. 

Sound Transit hopes to continue to operate these levels of service stably through March 2021, agency officials said in press release.
