Thanksgiving means turkey — and reduced bus schedules and closures at public buildings.

King County Metro Transit and Sound Transit buses and trains operate on special holiday hours Thursday for the holiday.

Metro Transit operates on a Sunday schedule for Thanksgiving and on a reduced weekday schedule Friday.

The reduced weekday schedule features more bus service than on weekends, but less service than on regular weekdays.

Sunday schedules apply for all ST Express buses and Link light rail routes on Thanksgiving. Sound Transit offices close Thursday and Friday.

Garbage collection also stops for the holiday. Allied Waste and Waste Management — haulers in Issaquah and the surrounding area — do not collect garbage, recycling and yard waste on Thanksgiving.

Thursday customers should expect a pick-up on Friday and Friday customers should expect a pick-up on Saturday.

In addition to closures at Issaquah City Hall and other local, state and federal government buildings, the Issaquah Community Center closes from Thursday to Saturday for the holiday. Julius Boehm Pool closes from Thursday to Sunday.
