Vigente del 3-23-19 al 9-20-19

On March 23, 2019, seven bus routes will shift from the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel (DSTT) to surface streets to accommodate the Washington State Convention Center construction and future Link light rail expansion. To keep buses and riders moving, the City of Seattle is establishing a new transit pathway on Fifth and Sixth Avenues and Metro will establish all-door boarding in the Third Avenue corridor and at stops along Westlake Avenue North. The Metro Customer Service Office in the Westlake Tunnel will close permanently.

In addition, Metro will continue to add service to address crowding and reliability, expand service in partnership with the City of Seattle, and make other changes across King County. These and other changes are summarized in the information listed on this page.
