Recommended changes to bus service
This page details Metro’s April 2014 recommendation to cut approximately 550,000 hours of service.
Summary to view or download:
Reducing our proposed cuts from 600,000 to 550,000 annual service hours gave us the opportunity to make some adjustments in response to public input about our original proposal. On certain routes, we used our service guidelines to identify lower-priority reductions to forego. This allowed us to keep longer hours of night service, mitigate peak service reductions, and preserve some midday service.
We kept Route 113, which was originally slated for deletion, to preserve commuter service to the Olson-Myers Park-and-Ride in West Seattle and maintain current coverage in Shorewood. We kept DART Route 908 to maintain the only all-day service covering East Renton/Maplewood and our only service to the Renton Senior Center.
