Metro buses switch to Holiday, reduced schedules for New Year's Eve and Day
December 18, 2012 · Updated 5:03 PM
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.
