Metro’s Friday evening commute time has ended with no significant service disruptions or delays to report.
There are impacts to Metro Transit service during the Labor Day holiday, Bumbershoot & Seahawks events
In observance of Labor Day, King County Metro Transit operates a Sunday/Holiday schedule on Monday, September 1. There are also lots of other events in Metro’s service area.
Labor Day transit service
If your bus does not normally operate on a Sunday, it will not operate on Monday. The holiday schedule means that many commuter bus routes will not be in service that day. Bus riders should check the schedule for their routes, as well as scheduled event and construction reroutes.
Sunday fares are in effect on all Metro service on Labor Day.
Riding transit is a good way to get to area events and celebrations. Even when affected buses are rerouted, they usually still get close to event venues near their routes. Use the regularly published Sunday schedule for your bus on Monday, but expect delays wherever there are crowds or traffic congestion.
Bumbershoot at Seattle Center
While Metro is not operating shuttles or other special or additional service for Bumbershoot at Seattle Center over the holiday weekend, there is plenty of regularly scheduled transit service that serves the festival.
Routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 13, 24, 32, 33 and the RapidRide D Line serve Seattle Center directly, while routes 5, 16, 26, 28, 40 and the RapidRide E Line go to within a few blocks. The RapidRide C Line from West Seattle continues downtown as the D Line to Seattle Center.
Metro customers are advised to plan for delays and crowds during next week’s NFL events and Seahawks home opener in the Pioneer Square and stadium areas. Buses that normally operate along S Jackson Street in the Pioneer Square area will be rerouted. Visit Metro’s Service Advisories page before you travel to find out how your bus will be affected in that area. Crowding and traffic congestion related to this event could cause significant disruption to all traffic, as well as transit service that passes through downtown Seattle. Transit riders are advised to plan ahead, revise travel plans if necessary, allow plenty of time, expect significant delays, sign up for Transit Alerts and watch for additional information online and at bus stops.
