SEATTLE - Starting Monday, some Metro Transit routes and a stop in downtown Seattle will be shifted to ease congestion and help improve evening travel times for riders, according to officials.
King County Metro Transit is shifting five bus routes off of Olive Way and onto Pike Street, and moving a bus stop one block north on Fourth Avenue.
The revised routes are 301, 306, 308, 312 and Sound Transit Express 522, and the revision will serve riders at the stop on Pike Street just west of Sixth Avenue.
To make the route revision work, Metro Transit will close the bus stop on Fourth Avenue between Union and Pike streets on Monday.
All buses will serve the stop one block north on Fourth Avenue between Pike and Pine streets.
The moved bus stop affects riders on:
- Metro routes 111, 114, 210, 212, 214, 215 and 217
- Community Transit routes 402, 405, 410, 412, 413, 415, 416, 417, 421, 422, 424, 425 and 435
