All Metro service is currently affected significantly by changing icy roads and weather conditions.
Metro is operating its Emergency Service Network on Monday and Tuesday this week. During ESN operation, no other routes, except for those listed below, operate, and some King County neighborhoods and streets have no bus service because of difficult travel conditions or geography.
The DART Route 931 Emergency Snow Network (ESN) route in both directions between UW Bothell and the Redmond Transit Center is not operating this evening, due to icy road conditions.
The Routes 21, 120 and RapidRide C line Emergency Snow Network (ESN) routes are severely limited in the West Seattle area, due to icy road conditions.
The West Seattle Water Taxi Shuttle Route 773 Emergency Snow Network (ESN) route in both directions between Alaska Junction and Seacrest Park is not operating this evening, due to icy road conditions.
Routes 3 and 4 Emergency Snow Network (ESN) routes are not serving north Queen Ann north of Valley St due to icy road conditions. Buses are turning back at Valley Street.
Emergency Service Network (ESN)
ESN operation means that, due to severe weather and road conditions, Metro service is significantly reduced to 56 bus routes and several associated chained shuttles that serve only designated major cleared arterials in more densely populated areas.
This reduced network of transit operation means that many King County neighborhoods do not have the service or levels of service to which they are accustomed.
The ESN includes only routes that Metro believes it can operate with a reasonable degree of safety and reliability in severe conditions.
The ESN is not incorporated into Metro’s trip planner, however other trip planner features and tools, such as maps and bus stops along ESN routes, may still be helpful to riders.
Visit the Metro Matters blog for information about how to use the ESN to connect to various locations.
ESN operation includes a designated set of already-established Metro and Sound
Transit Express bus routes, however, there may be revisions to the usual routes, and in some cases a portion of the route may not be served. Please review ESN routes carefully.
