Metro Transit’s seasonal changes begin on Saturday, Sept. 10. In our neighborhood, Route 45 between Loyal Heights and the UW Link Station will consolidate the 5:21 a.m. and 5:50 a.m. westbound trips into one trip leaving the UW station at 5:35 am.
Weekday late night trips after 10 p.m. and weekend trips after 11:30 p.m. will be adjusted to provide a better connection with Link Light Rail arrivals.
You can see details of all route changes here; or pick up an orange rider alert brochure or timetable on buses and at transit centers.

The new Link light rail stations in Capitol Hill and at the University of Washington will affect bus routes throughout the city once they open in 2016. Metro has proposed changes to 32 routes, including the 28 and 48 in Phinney Ridge and Greenwood, to streamline regional transit.
Route 28 Local and the 28 Express would be combined, making weekday buses more frequent. Route 48 would be more frequent both on weekdays and weekends.
Fill out Metro’s survey by May 31 to tell them how these changes will affect you.
