Get In The Know: Projects: Improving Route 120 Route 120 Stop Spacing

Metro is reducing the number of closely spaced bus stops on the Route 120 corridor. Some of the affected stops also serve routes 125, 128, 22, 85, 133, and 560. The changes will help buses move faster and operate on a more reliable schedule, reduce energy consumption and emissions, and reduce Metro’s operating and maintenance costs.

Route 120 has 89 bus stops between S Spokane Street and the Burien Transit Center. Metro plans to remove 17 stops and relocate 10 stops, increasing the average spacing between stops from about 969 feet to 1,269 feet.

As a result of these changes, about 17 percent of Route 120 riders who board south of S Spokane Street will have to use different stops.

When will these changes happen?

Some stops were removed in May 2012. Another set of changes will be completed in time for the service change on Sept. 29, 2012. The remaining changes will be complete by spring 2013. If your stop will be changing, watch for a rider alert at the stop for notice about when it will be changed.
