MLK Day: Reduced Bus Service, Plan For Seattle Street Closures

King County Metro Transit will operate a reduced weekday schedule on Monday, January 21, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

King County Metro Transit will operate a reduced weekday schedule on Monday, January 21, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

On days with reduced weekday schedules, some commuter and school-oriented routes do not operate, and other routes have individual trips canceled. Metro also makes some adjustments to routes that serve the University of Washington. When the UW is not in session, there will be some bus trip reductions.

Additionally, some bus service will be affected by the holiday events in downtown Seattle and the Central District, and on Capitol Hill.

Buses will be rerouted from about Noon to 3 PM, where street closures and traffic congestion are expected on Second Avenue in downtown Seattle, in the Central District, and on 15th Avenue East and East Pine Street on Capitol Hill, as a result of the Martin Luther King Jr Day events.

*Editor's Note: Information provided by King County Metro Transit.

During these events, Metro and Sound Transit bus service will be rerouted off of parts of Second Avenue, 23rd Avenue E, 15th Avenue E, E Union Street, E Madison Street, E Seneca Street and E Pine Street.

Specific reroute details are on the Metro Online Construction & Events page.

Visit Metro’s online Trip Planner to find out how to get to and from events and locations. Trip Planner
itineraries do not include information about planned service disruptions, so be sure to check if your
route will be affected.

Visit Metro Online for more information, or call the Customer Information Office at 206-553-3000
prior to Monday. The Customer Information Office and most other Metro and King County offices
will be closed on Monday.
