Metro Reduced Holiday Service Begins Monday

December 18th, 2012 by Laura Fonda

Heads up if you rely on Metro for commuting or are planning on downtown trips for some last minute holiday shopping – King County Metro Transit will be operating on holiday and reduced weekday schedules all next week and the beginning of the following week (New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day).

According to Metro:

“Using a limited schedule over holiday periods from November through January is estimated to save Metro about $1 million each year. These are planned reductions for holiday periods when Metro has historically seen a reduction in the number of weekday riders – estimated to be 15 percent or more systemwide.”

Sunday schedules will be in effect on the following holidays:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 25 – Christmas
  • Tuesday, Jan. 1 – New Year’s Day

The reduced weekday schedule will be in effect on:

  • Monday, Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve
  • Wednesday-Friday, Dec. 26-28  – winter holiday period
  • Monday, Dec. 31 – New Year’s Eve
  • Monday, Jan. 21 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Queen Anne routes with reduced weekday schedules include: 2, 3, 4, 13. A list of additional route service impacts are online.
