Ride safely

  • Wear a mask while riding on transit.

Transit service may be interrupted by weather, events or activities
In areas where there are crowds, traffic, weather or events disrupting normal travel patterns, transit riders are advised to be aware of conditions in their immediate area, such as street closures or detours.

Be prepared for delays, or to make revisions to travel plans, such as using a different bus stop, depending on specific circumstances. Be prepared for unexpectedly revised traffic or routing, and for delays in transit service. Transit riders are encouraged to know the alternate routes or stops that may be near their starting points and destinations.

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.  Event start and end times and other details may be subject to change.

Know before you go
During events that disrupt transit service, online or real time customer information planning tools and third-party apps may not be accurate and may not reflect temporary schedule changes.

Even during disruptive weather or other events, these systems may still provide useful information, such as maps and bus stop information.

Trailhead Direct 2021 update

King County Parks and King County Metro are happy to announce that the Trailhead Direct service will be returning for 2021! We can’t wait to welcome you aboard.

The service will be composed of 2 routes this year — Issaquah Alps and Mt. Si. The season will launch on Saturday June 5 and run through Sunday September 26th. The Issaquah Alps route will start at the Mount Baker Transit Center with service every 30 minutes to Squak Mountain State Park and Tiger Mountain. The Mount Si route will start at the Sound Transit Capitol Hill Link light rail station with service every 20 minutes to Mount Si, Mount Teneriffe, and Little Si.

Public health and responsible recreation guidelines were taken into close account when designing this season’s service. To keep you safe while we keep you moving, King County Metro has made some big changes aboard all buses, including Trailhead Direct vehicles:

  • Masks are required onboard and while waiting for your Trailhead Direct vehicle at transit centers.
  • Please ensure you wear your mask over your nose and mouth and keep it on for the duration of your trip. Help us protect the vehicle operators and one another while en route to the trailheads.
  • Respect the passenger limits onboard Trailhead Direct vehicles, and please observe the signage onboard to block seats to support physical distancing.
  • King County Metro is disinfecting vehicles daily, and has installed safety partitions.

Our day-to-day looks very different than it did in 2019, so too does the Trailhead Direct service. To protect each other, the land, and delicate ecosystems, King County Parks encourages you to #RecreateResponsibly by taking these things into account when planning your Trailhead Direct adventure this summer:

  • Know before you go. Check the status of the place you want to visit to make sure it’s open. Have a back-up plan in case of crowding.
  • Plan ahead. Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch, and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a mask. Give yourself extra time to catch your return trip and in case of changes to the plan.
  • Practice physical distancing. Be prepared to mask up to give others space. Keep your group size small. If you’re feeling sick, stay home.
  • Play it safe. Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce risk of injury. Stay within your limits to prevent burdening search and rescue teams and health care providers.
  • Explore responsibly. Be mindful of where you’re choosing to take a trip and your impact on the communities you visit. Always keep pets on leash.
  • Leave no trace. Stay on the trail. Respect the land and water, as well as Native and local communities. Pack out everything you bring with you, including trash and pet waste.
  • Build an inclusive outdoors. Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for people of all races, backgrounds, and abilities.
