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.
