Metro buses have reduced holiday schedule Friday,
but most will be back to regular routing
Most Metro Transit buses will be off snow routing by Friday morning, but bus riders are reminded the system is on a reduced schedule for the day after Thanksgiving.
After battling snowy and icy roads for four days, most buses will be on regular routes. There may be a few exceptions where the roads are still slick or closed. If driving is difficult in your neighborhood, there is a chance buses could still be on snow routes on Friday morning.
The long holiday weekend includes already-scheduled changes for Metro service:
• On Friday, there is a reduced weekday schedule which features more service than weekends but less than a regular weekday. This is done during holiday periods when Metro traditionally sees 20-40 percent lower ridership . Details on the reduced weekday schedule can be found online;
• There are many holiday events in Seattle this weekend that will cause temporary reroutes and delays for bus service including the downtown Macy’s Holiday Parade on Friday morning, the Friday evening Westlake Tree Lighting ceremony, the Seattle Marathon on Sunday with related events on Saturday, and the Seahawks game on Sunday.
Metro’s Customer Information Center at (206) 553-3000 will be open again at 8 a.m. Saturday after the holiday.
