Metro buses are on snow routes again today. Some routes are cancelled. Route 5 is affected in the Shoreline area. Route 28 is not serving Broadview north of 103rd. Route 44 is cancelled due to snow and ice in the Ballard area. See more Metro bus alerts. If you must ride the bus, dress warm for long waits at stops and even longer rides (my ride home last night was two hours from downtown Seattle to PhinneyWood).
