Some King County Metro Transit bus routes in Issaquah and Sammamish change Feb. 5.

Riders throughout the Metro Transit service area should check winter schedules for the routes they use most often to see what has changed. Riders can prepare by picking up a blue timetable and the Special Rider Alert brochure. The information is also posted at Metro Online.

Or use the Trip Planner for some advance research. Be sure to input a date of Feb. 5 or later for the Trip Planner. Riders can also call Metro Customer Information at 206-553-3000.

The changes for local riders include:

  • The southbound trip to Issaquah from Providence Point at 6:18 a.m. and the northbound trip to Providence Point from Issaquah at 6:23 a.m. will be discontinued.
  • In Overlake, Route 269 returns to its previous routing on Northeast 31st Street and 152nd Avenue Northeast. Other parts of the current route will be deleted.
  • The changeover includes routing and bus stop changes for about 20 bus routes from various areas of the county and then pass through downtown Seattle. Metro Transit has made the changes to accommodate the Alaskan Way Viaduct and seawall replacement project on First Avenue between South King Street and South Holgate Street in Seattle.

Metro updates routes and scheduling three times per year to improve service and meet the changing needs of transit customers.
