On Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, Metro will adjust and restore service on routes in Seattle and King County. Service levels will climb to about 90% of prepandemic levels, and more than 11,000 daily trips across hundreds of routes. However, 18 routes remain suspended due to low ridership demand and financial realities.

For routes that are suspended, here are updated tips and alternatives, courtesy of Metro’s transit 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. In the coming weeks, Metro’s Trip Planner and Puget Sound Trip Planner app will be up to date for planning trips on or after Oct. 2.

Some routes that are currently suspended in North King County will be replaced Oct. 2 with new or revised routes that will begin operating as part of the North Link Connections Mobility Project. More information about those route changes is available on the North Link Get Ready webpage.

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