Sound Transit’s Link light rail celebrated its fourth birthday on July 18 amid continued strong ridership growth and record-setting trends this summer. The 15-mile line has carried more than 30 million riders since it opened to the public on July 18, 2009.

Link has seen double-digit annual ridership growth since opening, and averaged almost 32,000 weekday boardings in June, a 14 percent increase over June, 2012. Link also saw its busiest day ever when it carried more than 38,000 riders on Tuesday, June 11.
