Metro’s Wednesday PM Commute: Rts 159, 168 and RapidRide A Line are still rerouted; earlier delays are subsiding as commute winds down

Timberlane Reroutes
Route 159 to Timberlane is currently rerouted off a portion of SE 272nd St, Timberlane Way SE and SE 262nd Pl, due to a blockage.

Until further notice, use the stops on SE 272nd St west of SE Wax Rd or on SE 261st St west of SE 180th Av SE.

Route 168 is currently rerouted in both directions due to a blockage on SE Timberlane Blvd near Timberlane Way SE.

Until further notice, use the stops on SE 272nd St west of SE Wax Rd or east of 191st Pl SE.

RaidRide A Line Reroute
RapidRide A Line is rerouted off southbound Pacific Hwy S between S 260 St and S 272 St.

Use the stops on southbound Pacific Hwy S north of S 260th St or south S 272nd St.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and we appreciate you patience.

Hot weather tips
Metro Transit is advising all transit riders in its service area to plan ahead for traveling during the very hot weather that is expected during the next few days.

While about 70 percent of Metro’s bus fleet has air conditioning, crowded buses could still feel very warm, and getting to and from bus stops in the heat may be a consideration for some people.

  • Ride the bus during off-peak hours, when buses are less crowded.
  • If possible, take morning or evening bus trips to avoid the midday sun.
  • Carry water with you on the bus to keep you hydrated.
  • Wear lightweight, comfortable clothing.
  • If you are traveling with children or seniors, be aware that they are more prone to heat-related illness.

Metro does everything it can to make riding transit as comfortable as possible, however, transit service can be affected by traffic, weather and other conditions over which we have no control. Your patience during delays and service disruptions is appreciated.

Convention Place tunnel station stop closures & relocation
On July 21 the bus stops inside the Convention Place Station closed permanently. Buses are now serving stops on Ninth Avenue.

Try Metro’s new text for departures tool to quickly find the next departures of transit service at stops
