[ARCHIVED] - Plan Ahead: Transit Service in Winter Weather -

If we have a severe winter storm, it will likely cause disruptions to transit services.

Prepare now by learning about alternative options and safety tips by reviewing our checklist:

Before Winter Weather

• Sign up for transit alerts from King County Metro Transit and Sound Transit.

• Know other transit options or bus routes that would work for you if your regular service is delayed or rerouted.

• Have a backup plan. Find out if you can work from home or change your schedule in an emergency.

During and After the Storm

• Check weather reports before you travel.

• Check Metro Transit and Sound Transit rider alerts. Or call Sound Transit at 888-889-6368.

• For road conditions, check City of Issaquah and other local traffic cameras.

• Give yourself plenty of time to get to your bus stop or transit center. Please dress warmly and be prepared to wait, as there will likely be service delays.

• When streets are slick, wait for buses on flat portions of the street. If your stop is on a hill, walk to the bottom of the hill where the operator can safely stop.

• Remember that Metro’s Trip Planner and tracker programs (such as OneBusAway) do not account for service revisions, such as rerouting, delays or cancellations.

• Keep in mind your bus may not pull all the way to the curb, to avoid getting stuck.
