Metro operating on snow routes until further notice

Update Monday: Metro is still operating on snow routes, plus a reduced holiday schedule because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Earlier: King County Metro Transit is operating all bus routes on designated snow routes until further notice.
From Metro:

If your bus does not have a pre-planned snow route, it will operate its regular route, however service may be delayed due to weather and road conditions. Transit customers are advised to wait for buses at posted bus stops on flat portions of cleared arterials or at major transfer points, such as park-and-ride lots and transit centers where there may be multiple service options.
It is not possible to know when a bus will arrive at a specific location, or to provide service updates at the individual trip or stop level.
Use regularly published timetables as a guide, check Metro’s online snow page for route updates, be aware of conditions in your area and be prepared for delays.

Metro also just published a notice that the printed paper timetable for Route 28 shows an incorrect snow route.

The snow route does not operate via Aurora Av N and N 46th St.
It does continue to its Broadview terminal via 3rd Av NW south of NW 103rdSt, Holman Rd, Greenwood Av N and N 130th St.
The correct routing is available on the Route 28 map page on Metro Online.
