King County Metro Transit is making some scheduling and routing changes this fall to save money, preserve bus service, and operate more efficiently. Changes begin Saturday and include Bellevue routes.
Locally, revisions to Metro routes serving the Bellevue area include:
Route 245 – During the midday and early evening peak period, frequency will improve to every 15 minutes.
Route 265 – Three trips will be added during each weekday peak period, and there are some routing revisions in downtown Seattle.
Route 271 – On weekdays, frequency will improve to every 10 minutes during the morning and afternoon peak periods on the portion of the route between Eastgate and the U-District. Evening service frequency on that section will improve to every 30 minutes until about 10 p.m. Also, the Route 271 terminal at the University of Washington campus will move to Memorial Way.
Routes 210, 212, 232, 242 & 342 – Select trips will be discontinued.
Bus riders should check the orange fall schedules for the routes they use most often to see what’s new.
