1:45 p.m. update: A message from King County Metro Transit:
“In order to safely transport as many passengers as possible, King County Metro Transit will be focusing on core service on major routes for the afternoon commute and the rest of Thursday. Due to deteriorating travel conditions, Metro will cancel or severely reduce service on many of its bus routes this afternoon and evening. The developing plan is to provide bus service on cleared highways and arterial roads, and to major transit centers and park-and-ride lots. This transit plan will continue until weather and road conditions improve, which means almost all bus service will be significantly limited.”
Metro says it will post these changes online here by mid-afternoon today.
