King County Metro will operate all bus routes Monday, April 3, through Sunday, April 9, although some individual weekday bus trips will be canceled. All weekend routes and trips are expected to operate as scheduled.
King County began migrating its website March 31, which means some transit resources are temporarily unavailable. Metro’s Trip Planner remains available, and transit alert service disruptions are emailed, texted and Tweeted.
Fleet repairs continue and our maintenance crews are focused on returning buses to service, as well as working with vendors to stabilize the supply chain challenges affecting our industry. We appreciate your patience while we complete this important work. We also continue to face workforce availability challenges and are actively recruiting, training and promoting operators to deliver our service.
To support riders better, we also are sending email and text Transit Alerts in advance in cases where there are known, recurring canceled trips.
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.
