Metro’s Friday PM Commute: Transit delays continue along SB I-5 from Northgate to I-90; expect delays due to Weekend events & I-5 closure

I-5 construction
From Friday evening, July 13 at 8:00 PM, through Monday, July 16 at 5:00 AM, transit service that travels along northbound I-5 between I-405 and SR-520 may be delayed or rerouted due to lane reductions associated with Washington State Department of Transportation’s Revive I-5 project.

Transit riders should expect service delays on surface streets adjacent to this section of the I-5 corridor. I-5 buses may be rerouted to surface streets, causing delays, but no changes to bus stops served.

Attention ORCA and TransitGo pass and ticket buyers
Metro has switched to a new simple fare of $2.75 for all
regular adult fare passengers. Metro riders are no longer paying additional
surcharges for fare zones or travel during peak commute hours. Watch
for additional information from your fare payment system of choice, and
plan to make any necessary revisions starting with your July pass or ticket
purchase. This is a revision to Metro fares. For other agencies’ fares,
please visit their respective sites.
