Metro buses switch to Holiday, reduced schedules for New Year's Eve and Day
King County Metro Transit will be operating on holiday and reduced weekday schedules Christmas week and during the New Year’s holidays.
On New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, Metro will operate a reduced weekday bus service, and on New Year's Day, Jan. 1, will operate buses on a Sunday schedule. Details are posted on Metro’s holiday and reduced service page and in route timetables.
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.
