Buses operate on reduced schedules Saturday for New Year’s Day.
King County Metro Transit buses operate on a reduced weekday schedule Friday and on a Sunday schedule on Saturday.
The agency offers a list of affected routes to help riders prepare. During the reduced weekday schedules, some commuter and school-oriented routes do not operate, and other routes have individual trips canceled.
In addition, Metro Transit plans to raise fares next year in order to tackle a budget shortfall.
