Bus Shelters

The King County Metro Transit system is one of the largest transit systems in the nation and includes 8,100 bus stops and 1799 bus shelters. Most of these are located on either public or private property and maintained by Metro. Metro works with communities and neighborhoods to keep shelters in good shape by quickly repairing damage, and by enhancing them with artwork when possible. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Bus Shelter Mural Program—Metro contributes the paint and panels, and members of the community donate their artistic talent to creat murals for bus shelters. Learn more
  • Report problems—Call 206-477-3850 to report problems with bus shelters (examples: graffiti, broken shelter glass or benches, excessive garbage, or damaged/missing transit signs).

Smoking in or near bus shelters is prohibited by law

“No smoking” decals are posted on all Metro shelters as a reminder that smoking is prohibited within 25 feet of the structures.
