Metro and Sound Transit provide many options for getting to the Seattle Women’s March 2.0 on Saturday.
Link light rail serves Capitol Hill and Cal Anderson Park, where the event is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Those planning to take Link can ride from 15 other stations between the University of Washington and Angle Lake. Customers also can ride Metro and Sound Transit to downtown and join the march from there.
Use online timetables or Metro’s online Trip Planner to find bus service to Capitol Hill or University of Washington Link stations. Bus service that travels to or near these areas includes Metro routes 8, 10, 11, 12, 31, 32, 43, 44, 45, 47, 48, 49, 60, 65, 67, 71, 73, 75, 271 and 372.
Sound Transit Route 545 serves both Montlake Freeway Station and downtown Seattle for connections with other service.
A few more traveling tips:
- Have your transit fare or an ORCA card ready, or download a ticket to your phone through the Transit Go mobile ticketing app.
- Sign up for Transit Alerts on Metro’s website. Detailed information on bus service during the march is available at Metro’s Service Advisories page and Sound Transit’s rider alerts page.
- Transit riders should use current timetables, plan ahead, allow plenty of time and prepare for traffic delays.
- Extra Metro buses do not have schedules, will not appear in the Metro’s online Trip Planner or One Bus Away, and will be dispatched based on demand. Riders should expect overcrowding and for some buses that are too full to accommodate more passengers.
- Fourth Avenue will close north of Pike Street to all traffic for the duration of the march. Metro and ST Express buses will be rerouted, and ST Express Route 512 will truncate at Westlake Station.
- After the event, Metro will provide shuttles from the west side of Seattle Center, northbound on First Avenue North at Harrison Street, for people wishing to return to the central downtown area.
Thousands are expected to participate—Metro and Sound Transit will run extra service as needed. Last year we logged more than 330,000 boardings on bus and light rail together and set a Saturday ridership record for Link light rail at 80,000.
