King County Metro Transit is reminding riders that buses will operate on Sunday and reduced weekday schedules over the Thanksgiving holiday and during several holiday periods through January – including a full week of reduced service at the end of December.
On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27, Metro will operate a Sunday schedule. On Friday, November 28, Metro will operate reduced weekday service, which offers more service than on weekends, but somewhat less service than on normal weekdays.
According to Metro, using a limited schedule over holiday periods from November through January will save an estimated $1 million each year. The holiday reductions are planned for times during which Metro historically sees a reduction in the number of weekday riders.
Metro offices, including the Customer Information phone line, and Lost and Found and Pass Sales counters, will be closed on both Thursday and Friday. The Customer Information Office at (206) 553-3000 will reopen on Saturday morning.
