Due to scheduled weekend construction at Convention Place Station, buses will not be operating in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel July 1-2. Customers who normally ride bus routes 41, 101, 150, 255 & Sound Transit Express Route 550 in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel will instead board or exit buses on surface streets.
NOTE! Sound Transit Link light rail will continue to operate in the tunnel. Buses are scheduled to return to service in the tunnel Monday morning, July 3.
Tunnel buses will travel the surface street routing they use when the tunnel is closed, as indicated on Rider Alerts posted at tunnel stations and on surface street bus stop signs along Second and Fourth avenues, Fifth Avenue South, Olive Way, Stewart and Virginia streets. Details are in Metro’s Alert Center.
Construction crews are scheduled to install a new traction power substation, which powers area electric trolley buses, as Metro’s Convention Place Station property is prepared for sale.
Nighttime construction continues after 9 p.m. on weekdays at Convention Place Station, during which riders board buses only at Bay letter “Ι.”
