King County Metro continues to deliver about 95% of our typical 11,000 weekday trips with only routes 301 and 304 suspended and some trip cancellations expected Jan. 23-27. Our maintenance crews are making steady progress on fleet repairs and we appreciate your patience while we complete this important work.
Before traveling, please review our service advisories, use the real-time tools below to see whether your trip is operating, and review our list of alternative routes (also below) for temporarily suspended routes 301 and 304. Due to the fluid nature of the situation, a small number of trips may run on routes that are temporarily suspended.
To support riders better, we also are sending email and text Transit Alerts in advance in cases where there are known recurring canceled trips expected to continue through the work week.
Before traveling, riders are encouraged to:
- Visit Metro’s service advisories page to see if Metro has suspended routes or construction reroutes.
- Sign up for transit alerts for your favorite routes to receive updates via email and text.
