Metro Downsizes 2021 Bus Service

Back in January we mentioned all the changes Metro Transit was proposing when the Link Light Rail opens to Northgate in September 2021. Now, their latest plan has downsized quite a bit from what was originally proposed, partially owing to Covid-related reductions in ridership and tax revenue in 2020.

The main effects to service around Victory Heights are fewer buses along Northgate Way during off-peak hours, and the elimination of the 312 Express route to downtown Seattle.

However, it’s not too late to add your input, Metro is currently conducting a public survey about the proposed routes, so here is your chance to be heard.

Incidentally, Metro returned to collecting fares on its bus routes on October 1st after suspending them in the spring.
