Metro is asking for community input on its adjustment of Eastside transit service
Metro is considering making changes next year to several bus routes that serve Bellevue, Redmond, Clyde Hill, Medina, and south Kirkland. These changes could affect Metro routes 221, 222, 225, 229, 230, 233, 240, 245, 246, 247, 249, 250, 253, 256, 261, 265, 266, 271, 272, and 926.
The purpose of the changes is to update bus service and provide good connections with the new RapidRide B Line and Sound Transit Express bus routes. The B Line will run between the transit centers in downtown Bellevue and Redmond via the Crossroads and Overlake areas. (Learn more)
