Metro Transit has reduced service Monday, Feb. 21
Neither water taxi route will operate on the holiday
King County Metro Transit reminds bus riders that it will be operating a reduced-weekday schedule on Monday, Feb. 21 in observance of the Presidents Day holiday. The King County Water Taxi will not operate either the Vashon or the West Seattle routes on Feb. 21. The free West Seattle Taxi Shuttles - Routes 773 and 775 - will not operate either.
On days with reduced weekday schedules, Metro does not operate some commuter and school-oriented routes, and other routes have individual trips canceled. A complete list of routes that are canceled or have trip cancellations during reduced-weekday schedules can be found online.
Also, long-range weather forecasts call for possible snow showers early next week, so be sure to sign up for Transit Alerts on Metro Online’s snow page. This will help keep you informed if the holiday schedule on Monday is delayed by bad weather.
The reduced weekday schedule features more bus service than on weekends, but somewhat less service than on normal weekdays. This schedule is typically used on about 10 days through the year, and is estimated to save Metro about $1 million annually.
