Transit Alert – Metro will start using northbound SR 99 & the new Dearborn Street ramp on Tuesday AM

On Tuesday morning, Metro service that has been rerouted via surface streets in the SODO area for the past several weeks will resume traveling via northbound SR 99, then will begin using the new South Dearborn St ramp into downtown Seattle.

Metro routes 21 Express, 37, 55, 56, 57, 113, 120, 121, 122, 123, 125 and the RapidRide C Line will travel via northbound SR 99 to the South Dearborn St ramp.

For all affected routes except Route 125, the first stop along this new long-term routing will be northbound on Third Avenue just south of Madison St.

Route 125 heading into Seattle will serve a new stop northbound on First Avenue just north of Marion St.  It’s next stop will be southbound on Third Avenue just south of Seneca St, as it heads back out of town.

The recent temporary stops on Prefontaine Place S and on 3rd Av at James St are no longer served by the SR 99 buses starting Tuesday morning.  There are no other new or revised stops at this time.

Use the regularly published schedules in online and paper timetables.  Metro encourages riders to be at bus stops a few minutes before their bus is scheduled to depart.

For the scheduled and predicted departure times of transit service at stops, visit the Next Departures & Stops feature in Metro’s online regional trip planner, or text your stop ID to 62550.

Riders’ patience over the past several weeks and months during SR 99 revisions is appreciated.

Thank you for riding and for using Metro’s services.
