Metro and Sound Transit temporarily reducing service and suspending fares to support the health of the community
Three important pieces of news for Sammamish transit riders:
- Sound Transit and King County Metro have suspended fares on all transit modes until further notice. To protect operators, all passengers are asked to board and exit buses through rear doors whenever possible. See the King County Metro announcement or the Sound Transit announcement for full details.
- Metro’s routes 216, 219, and 269 operating through the City will be impacted by either fewer trips and/or reduced hours of operation. Community Ride will not be operating, and Community Van (which has not launched in Sammamish yet) will continue as a work in progress.
- As of this update, Sound Transit’s route 554 through Sammamish will not experience any reduced service hours.
These changes went into effect on Monday, March 23rd.
