This weekend has fantastic fun in store between the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and the Fremont Solstice Parade and fair. Transit is always a great and inexpensive way to get around, but first do some homework because more than 30 bus routes will face reroutes and delays as a result of event street closures.
- Routes will be affected in the East Queen Anne, South Lake Union, Downtown Seattle, Columbia City, I-90, Rainier Valley, Leschi and Seward Park areas.
- Reroutes and delays will affect routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 21, 24, 26, 27, 28, 36, 38, 40, 48, 50, 62, 120, 124, 125, 131, 132, RapidRide C, D and E lines.
- Service on the First Hill Streetcar also will be affected by the marathon, and will not serve stops south of South Washington Street on Saturday from the start of service until about 2:30 p.m.
- A temporary free Saturday morning Rainier Valley area shuttle will help riders connect to transit service from 5:30-10:30 a.m. during the marathon. Event information is on the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon website.
Metro will operate a shuttle between downtown Seattle and the south end of the Fremont Bridge via Westlake Avenue North every 15 minutes from noon until 7 p.m. on Saturday.
Metro’s Service Advisories page has specific reroute details and times. Transit reroute start and end times may be subject to change.
