Metro Transit Special Rider Alert, January 2004

Revised January 28, 2004*

Bus Service Changes Begin Saturday, January 31, 2004

Every day, changes occur to King County roads, businesses and communities that impact our transportation network. That's why Metro makes changes to its bus service several times throughout the year. We want to help make your bus trips as fast and convenient as possible, and deliver service you can count on and appreciate.

January 31 through early June 2004 changes are listed in this Special Rider Alert. Please refer to your route's new green timetable for specific departure and arrival times. *There is a slight delay in the distribution of some of those timetables. Timetables are currently available on most buses, posted at bus stops, and starting Friday, Jan. 30 will be available online.

If you have any questions about the changes in transit service or need help planning your trip, please call Rider Information at 206-553-3000 (TTY users 206-684-1739), or use our online Trip Planner.

Thank you for riding Metro. We appreciate serving you and are doing our best to provide you with timely, reliable bus service for your everyday transportation needs.

NEW! Point-to-Point Schedules

Try Point-to-Point Schedules, our newest online Trip Planner tool. It allows you to create a custom schedule between two locations for a given time range. It shows all the routes that serve the two locations in the time range as long as no transfer is required. It also shows the exact stops to use and the time the route is expected at the stops. The new Point-to-Point schedule works for regularly scheduled public transit service in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Your results can be easily printed or downloaded to a personal digital assistant (PDA).
