Metro Transit updates Issaquah bus routes
February 1, 2011
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.
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.
- The changeover includes routing and bus stop changes for about 20 bus routes from various areas of the county that 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.
Metro updates routes and scheduling three times per year to improve service and meet the changing needs of transit customers.
Riders can prepare by picking up a blue timetable and the Special Rider Alert brochure on buses and Metro Transit information racks. The information is also posted at Metro Online.
Or use the online Trip Planner for some advance research. The trip planner is available at Metro Online. Be sure to input a date of Feb. 5 or later for the Trip Planner.
