Throughput the region, all transit agencies will operate Sunday schedules on Christmas and New Year’s Day. Schedules on the weekend of 28-29 December are unchanged. Aside from that, each agency’s revisions differ.
At Sound Transit, Link, Sounder, and ST Express will operate normally. The one exception is late Link trains for New Year’s celebrations:
Central Link light rail will operate on an extended schedule to accommodate holiday revelers. The last southbound Link train leaves Westlake at 1:13 a.m. and arrives at Sea-Tac Airport by 1:53 a.m. The last complete northbound trip from SeaTac leaves the station at 12:20 a.m. and arrives at Westlake by 12:58 a.m.
Tacoma Link light rail will also run on an extended schedule. The last Tacoma Link train from the Theater District Station will depart at 1:12 a.m. The last train to depart the Tacoma Dome leaves at 1:00 a.m.
From today through January 1st, Metro will be operating its “reduced weekday” and “No UW” schedules. Even on many extremely important routes, an “H” by a trip in the schedule indicates it will not operate for the next 7 days. OneBusAway warns that they do not have this schedule data, so tracking will be unreliable on the reduced weekdays (and today):
Heads up. Because of the holidays and reduced bus service, OBA info will not be reliable for Sound Transit and KCMetro routes Dec. 26 – 31.
