Holidays to affect transit
King County Metro Transit buses will operate on holiday and reduced weekday schedules over the Christmas holiday and during several holiday periods through January – including a full week of reduced service Dec. 24 to Jan. 1.
Using a limited schedule over holiday periods from November through January is estimated to save Metro about $1 million each year. Historically, Metro has seen a reduction in the number of weekday riders on those days.
Sunday schedules will be in effect for Christmas, Wednesday, Dec. 25 and New Year's Day, Jan. 1. The reduced weekday schedule will be in effect on Christmas Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 24, and Thursday, Friday and Monday, Dec. 26-31.

The Sounder commuter rail system will not operate on Christmas or New Year's Day. It will operate on a regular schedule on New Year's Eve. ST Express buses will operate on a regular schedule on New Year's Eve.
A number of Sound Transit routes will not operate on Christmas of New Year's Day and others will be on reduced schedule.
