Metro’s Friday AM Commute Is Underway

At the start of service on Friday morning, all Metro  routes have returned to regular service and routing throughout King County.

If there are temporary minor or localized service exceptions, Metro will send Transit Alerts as would be done for such cases on any other normal day.  Unexpected temporary reroutes are not posted online.Because of the possibility of localized icy conditions, it is still a good idea to be aware of conditions in your immediate area, watch media reports, watch for Transit Alerts and give yourself plenty of time.

While Metro posts and sends Transit Alertsabout known or planned service disruptions, rapidly changing road, traffic and weather conditions may make it impossible to know about every service interruption.  It may not be
possible to report on service that is affected on a per trip or per stop basis
.

Thank you for riding and for using Metro’s services.

Metro’s Thursday PM Commute Wrap-up

At 3:00 PM – Metro’s Thursday evening commute is winding down.

Most Metro routes in the East King County, Southeast King County and Southwest King County Snow Areas are on their snow routes.

Metro routes in the Central Seattle, North Seattle, North King County and most of the South Seatle Snow Areas are operating via their normal routes and stops, with possible delays due to conditions and service that is affected in East, Southeast and Southwest King County.

Only routes 106 and 107 are currently affected in the South Seattle Snow Area.

Please be aware of conditions in your immediate area, watch media reports, visit Metro Online for information and watch for Transit Alerts with updates as we get them. If conditions improve, service that was affected in the morning, may return to regular routing in the afternoon. Please plan your travel accordingly.

As the day progresses, conditions may change quickly. Metro will provide updates as soon as information can be gathered and confirmed.

If you are in an outlying or hilly area, or if the route in your neighborhood is a commuter-type route with a limited number of trips, Metro encourages you to go to a transit center, park and ride lot or more heavily traveled flat arterial where there is more service available.

Expect possible significant delays.  Allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination. Buses may be crowded or delayed on snow days.

Before traveling, check Metro Online for the most current status of Metro service. Updates to the online information begin as early as 4 a.m. and continue as needed until the event is over.

We will return at 6:00 AM Friday morning to help keep an Eye on Your Metro Commute.
