Starting Saturday, May 31, King County Metro Transit will make a few changes to bus routes to update bus service.

A new trip on Route 212 will leave the Eastgate Park-and-Ride at 4:30 p.m. on weekdays to connect with southbound Sounder train service that leaves Seattle at 5:15 p.m.

There will be an additional late-evening northbound trip on Route 221 leaving Eastgate at 10:11 p.m.

Metro adjusts its routes and scheduling three times a year in February, June and September to improve service and keep up with the changing needs of transit passengers. All of the changes are detailed in new bright green Metro timetables and a special Rider Alert brochure. Look for them on buses in the racks near the front of the coach. The brochures and timetables are also available at Metro information racks, libraries, and work sites.

The new schedule information for all affected routes is now available in Metro’s online Trip Planner at or call Metro Rider Information at 206-553-3000.
