Sound Transit Express Route 512 leaves Downtown Seattle, travels straight up I-5 to Everett, making just a handful of stops along the way. Among the cities and neighborhoods it serves are Wallingford and the U-District, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, and Everett—although with park-and-rides lining the route toward the north, people from all sorts of towns use this bus.
We’ve found five notable homes for sale along the route. Because most of the stops after downtown and before Everett are clustered around stations, it could mean a little more of a walk to the bus than we usually account for on these maps. But also because the stops are clustered around stations, it means the bus has only eight stops after leaving downtown—and two of those are at the very end of the line in Everett.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t run during peak hours—then it switches to the 510, which goes straight to Everett and skips the stops in between. But they’re all close to transit hubs, meaning plenty of other options for getting to and from a nine-to-five, like Community Transit Route 413. (This will all be served by Link Light Rail eventually, anyway.)Read More
