Buses on Thanksgiving schedule
Bus riders should be aware that King County Metro Transit will have reduced service for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Nov. 28, with different schedules for each day.
Metro will operate on a full holiday schedule on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 27, which means buses will operate on regular Sunday schedules. If a bus route normally has service on Sunday, then it will operate with its Sunday schedule on Thanksgiving. If the route does not usually operate on Sundays, then it will not have service on Thanksgiving.
On the day after Thanksgiving, a new partial holiday schedule will be in place. It features more bus service than on weekends, but less than normal weekdays. Many routes that will not run on Thanksgiving will be in operation on Friday, but with fewer trips than a regular weekday. Both the printed and online bus schedules, at www.kingcounty.gov/metro, indicate whether each trip on each individual Metro route will operate on a partial holiday. Look for the “H” symbol next to individual trip times to see if a specific trip is cancelled on Nov. 28.
Passengers should check the schedules for their bus routes in advance and plan accordingly. The partial holiday schedules are incorporated in Metro’s Online Trip Planner at www.kingcounty.gov/tripplanner. Or, for more information, call Metro’s Customer Information Office at (206) 553-3000.
