Getting you across the 520 bridge

Metro can help you avoid paying tolls on SR-520...at least some of the time.

Bus Service Bridging Lake Washington

Expanded Service for 520 Travelers!

Together Metro and Sound Transit make over 700 trips on 18 routes across the bridge every weekday. More buses mean more alternatives to driving and paying the bridge tolls. Metro is also improving park-and-ride lots and bus stops.
