Service Revisions at Bellevue TC Bay 3 – 9/22-23

On Thursday and Friday, 9/22-23, Metro routes 243 and 261 will not serve Bay 3 at the Bellevue Transit Center while operational testing is conducted on the RapidRide B Line, scheduled to begin service on October 1. During this time, routes that normally use BTC Bay 3 will instead serve Bay 1 at the west end of the BTC, southbound on 108th Ave NE.   

The Mt Baker Link Station elevator to & from the southbound platform is out of service.  The northbound platform elevator is operating.

  • Until repairs are made, southbound passengers who require the use of the elevator should ride instead north to Beacon Hill and transfer to a southbound train.
  • Southbound passengers who want to exit at Mt Baker should ride to Columbia City & transfer to a northbound train back to Mt Baker.  

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

Travel safely and have a great weekend.
