Winter weather continues to hamper transit operations in Puget Sound. Here’s today’s morning update:
|King County Metro||Last night, Metro again extended the Emergency Snow Network, which consolidates service to about 60 core routes. Paratransit service is more limited because of the reduced scope of bus service. Water Taxis are expected to operate.|
|Sound Transit||Some ST Express bus routes are skipping stops and operating on snow routes while train service (1 Line, N Line, and T Line) is largely operating normally, except that the S Line is operating on reduced service levels and Route 556 has been suspended.|
|Seattle Streetcar||Both streetcar lines continue to operate.|
|Seattle Monorail||There’s no update yet, but service did run until 7:45pm on Tuesday when it was suspended early.|
|Community Transit||All routes are operating on snow routes.|
|Pierce Transit||Most routes are operating on snow routes, except Routes 52, 54, 55, 100, 202, 206, 402, 409, and 497. Downtown Tacoma circulators are also operating.|
|Intercity Transit||Most routes are operating normally, but Routes 12, 45, 47, 64, and 68 are operating on snow routes.|
|Kitsap Transit||An update will come around 8:00am, but the agency has canceled some service and is operating many routes on modified routes and emergency routes.|
|Everett Transit||Service is operating normally.|
In all cases, refer to agency social media and websites for maps, schedules, and service alerts. Routes may be operating very differently than normal and circumstances can change quickly.
