Transit service continues to be rerouted off of University Way NE between NE Campus Pkwy and NE 50th St, using 15th Av NE instead. Use posted stops on University Way NE south of NE Campus Pkwy or north of NE 50th St, or at posted stops along the reroute.

Transit has resumed service on 2nd Av south of University St.

The Westlake Tunnel entrance on Pine St is now open.

Service delays expected to subside on Route 106 on Martin Luther King Jr Way S; the earlier blockage near S Alaska St has been cleared.

Route 125 has resumed regular routing in downtown Seattle; the earlier blockage on 1st Av near Pine St has been cleared.

Be prepared for service delays due to May Day and Mariner traffic. Visit SDOT, King County & Metro information sites, and see notifications.  Transit riders may want to change travel plans  know alternate routes or sign up for Transit Alerts.

Tuesday, May 1, from early afternoon until possibly late evening, transit
service will be significantly affected by multiple May Day events in and around
downtown Seattle, including both planned and unplanned rallies and marches.
Expect some planned transit reroutes as well as possible significant service
delays due to traffic, crowds and congestion associated with these events.
Event and transit reroute start and end times and other details may be subject to change.
While Metro can plan some bus reroutes in advance, other transit service may
also be rerouted either briefly or intermittently as conditions warrant. It is not
possible to know where or when all the impacts of various events will occur.
Regular transit riders not taking part in Tuesday’s events are advised to revise
their travel plans or routes; know what their alternatives may be; check Metro’s online Service Advisories page before traveling for planned reroutes; sign up for Transit Alerts for major updates, and be prepared for delays or other unpredictable service disruptions.
During major service disruptions real time apps and information signs may not be able to accurately predict when buses will arrive at stops. All transit riders should be prepared for delays and allow plenty of extra time for travel on Tuesday.

Planned May Day events
May Day March for Workers & Immigrant Rights
This planned march will begin at Judkins Park at approximately 3:30 PM and will conclude with a rally on Second Avenue at Spring Street. The march is expected to travel via S Jackson St, to Fourth Av S to Madison St and on to Second Avenue, where traffic will likely be blocked for a while.

weather or civic events, transit riders are advised to

detours, police directions, etc.
– Be prepared for delays or to make revisions to travel plans, such as traveling at a different time or using a different bus stop or route, depending on specific
circumstances.
– Be prepared for unexpectedly revised traffic or routing, and for delays in
transit service.
– Know the alternate stops or routes that may be in the vicinity of their starting
points and destinations.
Such events may be scheduled or unexpected, and may disrupt normal travel
patterns or activities.
While every effort will be made to keep riders informed of Metro’s service status, depending on the time and the nature of such events, Metro may not be able to provide real-time information or service updates via email or text.
Metro will also be following police direction or other applicable protocols, with
safety as the first concern, and will work to maintain or restore service as soon as possible.

Metro’s Tuesday PM Commute: Transit service is currently being rerouted off 2nd Av between University St & Marion St, as the civic event continues to Westlake Park; delays expected to subside on 4th Av

Transit service is currently being rerouted off of 2nd Av between University St and Marion St, using 3rd Av instead, as the civic event proceeds to Westlake Park; service delays on 4th Av are expected to subside.

Route 125 has resumed regular routing in downtown Seattle; the earlier blockage on 1st Av near Pine St has been cleared.

Be prepared for service delays due to May Day and Mariner traffic. Visit SDOT, King County & Metro information sites, and see notifications.  Transit riders may want to change travel plans  know alternate routes or sign up for Transit Alerts.

Tuesday, May 1, from early afternoon until possibly late evening, transit
service will be significantly affected by multiple May Day events in and around
downtown Seattle, including both planned and unplanned rallies and marches.
Expect some planned transit reroutes as well as possible significant service
delays due to traffic, crowds and congestion associated with these events.
Event and transit reroute start and end times and other details may be subject to change.
While Metro can plan some bus reroutes in advance, other transit service may
also be rerouted either briefly or intermittently as conditions warrant. It is not
possible to know where or when all the impacts of various events will occur.
Regular transit riders not taking part in Tuesday’s events are advised to revise
their travel plans or routes; know what their alternatives may be; check Metro’s online Service Advisories page before traveling for planned reroutes; sign up for Transit Alerts for major updates, and be prepared for delays or other unpredictable service disruptions.
During major service disruptions real time apps and information signs may not be able to accurately predict when buses will arrive at stops. All transit riders should be prepared for delays and allow plenty of extra time for travel on Tuesday.

Planned May Day events
May Day March for Workers & Immigrant Rights
This planned march will begin at Judkins Park at approximately 3:30 PM and will conclude with a rally on Second Avenue at Spring Street. The march is expected to travel via S Jackson St, to Fourth Av S to Madison St and on to Second Avenue, where traffic will likely be blocked for a while.
March and rally start and end times are subject to change.
Transit service that normally travel on S Jackson St, Fourth and Second avenues, as well as other transit service traveling along downtown Seattle streets will be rerouted. Reroutes will be posted online in the coming days and Transit Alerts sent to customers.

Other May Day events
There are other planned and possibly ad hoc events on May Day with less
specific information available. All event and reroute times are only approximate and are subject to change. Other transit service in the Seattle area may be delayed or temporarily rerouted by these events. Delayed service in one area may create delays in other areas.

Mariners home stand
The Seattle Mariners are home at Safeco Field on Tuesday with a 7:10 PM start
time. Game crowds combined with May Day event crowds may cause additional delays in transit service in and around the SODO area, Safeco Field and the south end of downtown Seattle.

Seattle Streetcar service on May Day

Both the First Hill and South Lake Union streetcars may experience service
delays along portions of their routes due to May Day events. Streetcars will not
operate on streets that are blocked by event participants.  Check for Rider Alerts and updates on the signs posted at streetcar stations.

Transit service during unexpected or civic events
In areas where there are transit service disruptions due to crowds, traffic,
weather or civic events, transit riders are advised to
– Be aware of conditions in their immediate vicinity, such as street closures,
detours, police directions, etc.
– Be prepared for delays or to make revisions to travel plans, such as traveling at a different time or using a different bus stop or route, depending on specific
circumstances.
– Be prepared for unexpectedly revised traffic or routing, and for delays in
transit service.
– Know the alternate stops or routes that may be in the vicinity of their starting
points and destinations.
Such events may be scheduled or unexpected, and may disrupt normal travel
patterns or activities.
While every effort will be made to keep riders informed of Metro’s service status, depending on the time and the nature of such events, Metro may not be able to provide real-time information or service updates via email or text.
Metro will also be following police direction or other applicable protocols, with
safety as the first concern, and will work to maintain or restore service as soon as possible.
Event start and end times and other details may be unknown or subject to
change.
