Buses on regular routes in our neighborhood for tonight’s commute

February 24th, 2011 · No Comments

Metro Transit is on regular routes in our neighborhood during the evening commute, but is still on snow routes for the East, Southeast and Southwest service areas. However, Metro cautions that snow routes could be implemented in the northern service areas again if the weather warrants it.

Temperatures are forecast to be extremely low overnight throughout King County, so icy roads are expected again Friday morning. Snow routing will likely continue for many bus routes through the day and evening on Friday.

Travel conditions could change quickly, and Metro will provide updates as soon as information can be gathered and confirmed. So, before traveling by bus, check the status for your route before you travel.

People without online access can call the Customer Information Office at (206) 553-3000. General information about service will also be sent out via the kcmetrobus Twitter account.

Expect buses to be crowded and significantly delayed when on snow routes and travel is difficult. Dress warmly for the walk to the bus stop and wear appropriate footwear for the weather.

Also, riders should head for bus stops on main arterials or at major transfer points such as park-and-ride lots, transit centers, or shopping centers. And, wait at stops at the very top or very bottom of hills, because buses are often unable to stop for passengers on icy inclines.
