King County Metro route 40 is a long route that starts downtown and winds through several neighborhoods in Northwest Seattle.
After picking up in both the downtown core and South Lake Union, it winds through Westlake, then over the Fremont Bridge. After hitting downtown Fremont, it moves onto Ballard on Leary, then runs north on 24th Avenue to Loyal Heights, then east through Crown Hill and Greenwood.
It ends its run in Northgate, by North Seattle College, Northgate Mall, and the Northgate Transit Center.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from condos to ramblers to craftsmans.Read More
