On Saturday, March 20, 2021, Metro will adjust service on routes in Seattle and King County, however some routes and trips remain suspended for the foreseeable future due to low ridership demand and financial realities. For routes that are suspended, here are updated tips and alternatives, courtesy of Metro planners. Riders also can call customer service for trip planning assistance at 206-553-3000 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Metro’s Puget Sound Trip Planner website and app now are up to date for planning trips on or after March 20.

We appreciate everyone continuing to follow the requirement to wear a mask on public transportation at all times.
