Capitol Hill Station
Broadway E & E John St

We’re kicking off U Link service with a free community celebration March 19 from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Stations and train rides open at 10 a.m.  Here’s a sample of what we have in store at each station:

  • Self-guided tours of University of Washington and Capitol Hill stations

  • A variety of live music, including instrumental, jazz, rock and hip-hop

  • Wave of the Future Pavilions featuring games, photo booths and more

  • Food for purchase from your favorite local food trucks

  • Farmer’s market at Capitol Hill Station

  • Free commemorative items (while supplies last).

At Capitol Hill Station, the 9 AM to 5 PM fun will include DJ Riz Rollins and street musician Pasquale Santos, giant Jenga, a temporary tattoo parlor, and a “Eurodance Party” parade (we don’t even know what that means!). You’ll be invited to take a “self guided” tour of the stations, enjoy some interpretive videos, and grab some undisclosed “commemorative items.” “Ambassadors in teal vests will also be available throughout the event to answer any questions that may arise during your visit,” Sound Transit assures.
