Want to know people's experiences with commute from South Bellevue East gate VS Issaquah trasit bay, both along i90.

I am joining Amazon soon and trying to decide what's a better option to rent based on commute times

    If you’re thinking about taking ST554, issaquah is better. Eastgate stop is on the highway ramp, so prepare for longish walks to the P&R under drizzling rain.

      Also much better chance to grab a seat in issaquah.

      And Metro 214 doesn’t even stop at Eastgate.

      OP
      Any idea on commute times from Issaquah?

      About 45-50 minutes I’d say. Search for ST554, timetables are posted online. That said, I was told that ST bus service would terminate at Mercer Island when the light rail goes to Bellevue.

    I took the shuttle from Bellevue for 2 years. It was great. If I needed to drive I went in a little early. Traffic isn’t that bad before 7am. Find a friend and car pool the HOV after that. Issaquah is much quieter, nicer, and closer to the mountains than east gate. Bellevue is feeling the spill over from Seattle’s problems.

      How long did it take for the shuttle to get you into the office? I heard that the Bellevue shuttle gets full real quick

      20-30 mins. It takes the HOV and bus lanes all the way down town.
