Route Revisions

Metro Transit Service

The routes listed below are a numerical listing of affected routes throughout Metro’s service area. Choose a route number or open the printer-friendly page to read about the changes that will begin on June 6, 2015.

City of Seattle funded transit improvments

With the passage of Proposition 1 last November, the City of Seattle now has a funding mechanism that is expected to raise $45 million per year to help address overcrowding and reliability issues with Metro service, and to add frequency to meet demand for more transit. Based on Metro’s Service Guidelines and the Seattle Transit Master Plan, funding is being used to improve the reliability of service, add trips to ease overcrowding and improve service frequency on many Metro routes.

Service added, restored, or revised

Note: City of Seattle funding will also help improve on-time reliability for the following routes:

1, 2, 7, 11, 14, 16, 17E, 18E, 21E, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, 37, 40, 41, 43, 44, 48, 49, 55, 56, 57, 64E, 66E, 70, 71, 72, 74E, 76, 83 Night Owl, 99 and the RapidRide C & D lines
