Metro buses, Water Taxi, and streetcars will operate adjusted schedules on Memorial Day


King County Metro Transit, the West Seattle Water Taxi and the Seattle Streetcar will operate Sunday schedules for Memorial Day (Monday, May 28). The Vashon Water Taxi will not be in service on the holiday.


Got plans this weekend? Metro has options for those headed to the Northwest Folklife Festival, to watch the Mariners, or even to hike the great outdoors.

But check bus schedules before you go. Metro bus routes that do not normally operate on Sundays will not be in service on Memorial Day. Customers can find more information on Metro’s holiday and reduced schedule service page.

Metro offices, including the Customer Information phone line at (206) 553-3000 and Lost and Found and Pass Sales counters, will be closed, and will reopen Tuesday, May 29.
