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.
