In March 2016, one week after the launch of new Link light rail service to Capitol Hill and the University of Washington, we made several changes to bus service in the affected areas.
These service changes, shown here, include some modifications to the changes approved by the King County Council. The modifications are within Metro’s administrative authority and were made to address specific issues that arose after Council adoption.

Why delete Route 72?
To reduce duplication and improve reliability.

- Between NE 80th Street and the University District, use new Route 45, or revised routes 67, 73, or 373X.
- On University Way, use new Route 45 or revised routes 67, 73, or 373X.
- For service between the University District and downtown Seattle, use Link light rail or revised Route 74X (peak periods only).
