Proposed route revisions for Lake City - Northgate - Downtown Seattle

Proposed for Metro Route 41

See Map 5.

  • Days of operation: Seven days a week.
  • Hours of operation: Approximately 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekdays; 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends.
  • Service frequency: Every 15 minutes until 7:30 p.m. on weekdays; every 15 minutes until 6 p.m. on Saturday; every 4 to 15 minutes during weekday peak hours between Fifth Avenue Northeast/ Northeast 125th Street and downtown Seattle; every 30 minutes between 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on weekdays, between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunday; every 60 minutes between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. and before 9 a.m. on Sunday.

Service on Route 41 would be expanded to operate seven days a week. Riders traveling to Northgate from Woodinville, Bothell, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park and southeast Shoreline could take new ST Express Route 522 or Metro Route 372 and transfer to Metro Route 41 at Lake City Way Northeast / Northeast 130th Street. Route 41 would operate more frequently on weekdays and Saturdays to minimize waiting times for transferring riders. Most trips on Route 41 would be extended from Northgate to Lake City to replace service currently provided by Route 307 (see Map 5), and Route 41's starting and ending times of service would match those of the current Route 307. Riders between Lake City, Northgate and downtown Seattle would continue to have direct, no-transfer service on Route 41. Most rush-hour Route 41 trips would continue to terminate at 5th Avenue Northeast/ Northeast 125th Street. Route 41 would continue to operate in the downtown Seattle transit tunnel when it is open, and on Third Avenue when the transit tunnel is closed.

Discontinuation proposed for Metro Route 307

Service on existing Metro Route 307 would be discontinued. Metro proposes expanded service for Route 41 to replace Route 307 between Lake City and downtown Seattle via Northgate. Riders traveling between Northgate and Woodinville, Bothell, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park or southeast Shoreline could take new ST Express Route 522 or Metro Route 372 and transfer to Metro Route 41 at Lake City Way Northeast / Northeast 130th Street. Route 41 would operate more frequently on weekdays and Saturdays to minimize waiting times.

Proposed for Metro Route 372

See Map 6.

  • Days of operation: Monday through Friday.
  • Hours of operation: 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on weekdays.
  • Service frequency: During peak periods, every 15 to 30 minutes between Kenmore and the University District, and every 30 minutes between Woodinville and the University District; during midday hours, every 30 minutes between Woodinville, Kenmore and the University District; during evening hours, every 60 minutes between Woodinville, Kenmore and the University District.

Service on route 372 would be expanded on weekdays to operate in both directions, and serve the University of Washington-Bothell / Cascadia Community College campus and the North Creek area in Bothell (see Map 6). It would make one additional stop at Lake City Way Northeast / Northeast 110th Street. Added trips would serve all class times at the main University of Washington campus in Seattle. The first southbound trip from Woodinville to the University District would leave Woodinville Park-and-Ride at about 5:30 a.m.; the last southbound trip would leave Woodinville at approximately 8 p.m. In the northbound direction from the University District to Woodinville, the first northbound trip would leave Northeast Campus Parkway / Brooklyn Avenue Northeast in the University District at about 5:50 a.m., and serve North Creek at about 6:45 a.m.; the last northbound trip would leave the University District (Campus Parkway / Brooklyn Avenue Northeast) at approximately 9:35 p.m.

The schedule of trips on Route 372 would be staggered with trips on new ST Express Route 522 between Woodinville and Lake City to provide more frequent service on weekdays along the SR-522 corridor.

Proposed for Metro Routes 306 and 312

See Map 7.

Route 312 trips beginning and ending in Woodinville would be revised to begin and end at the University of Washington-Bothell/Cascadia Community College campus (see Map 7). No changes would be made to Route 306 and 312 trips that begin and end in Kenmore. The number of trips on Route 312 between Bothell and downtown Seattle would not change. Alternative and faster service during peak hours between Woodinville and downtown Seattle is available on Metro Route 311, which will not change. Revised Metro Route 372 and ST Express Route 522 would provide service between Bothell and Woodinville.

Routes 306 and 312 would make one additional stop at Lake City Way Northeast / Northeast 130th Street.
