Bus Service

Construction activity updates

Overview

Metro Transit customers using Convention Place Station will see more weekend construction activity this year. Contractors are preparing to build a temporary ramp to connect the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel with Ninth Avenue, allowing the Washington State Convention Center develop the site. When Convention Place Station closes for construction, bus routes 41, 101, 150, 255 and Sound Transit Express Route 550 will operate on surface streets.

Construction is expected to last until later this summer, when all tunnel bus service will transition to a temporary ramp and Convention Place Station passenger facilities will shift up to Ninth Avenue for all tunnel buses.

You can monitor upcoming construction on the Metro Matters blog.
