King County Metro Transit
On Saturday, June 13, from 5:00 AM until the event clears and affected streets are re-opened, bus routes in the East Queen Anne, South Lake Union, Downtown Seattle, Columbia City, I-90, Rainier Valley, Leschi and Seward Park areas, will be rerouted or delayed due to the Rock & Roll Marathon.
Transit service in adjacent areas may also be affected by this event. Many buses will be rerouted, schedule delays are expected. Delays in one area can cause delays at other points along a bus’s routing. With more than 40 bus routes affected, the impacts could be significant.
In most cases, bus service is expected to return to normal as soon as event participants have cleared each section of the course, however, transit riders should check specific reroute or event information for possible minor exceptions.
Use regularly published Saturday transit schedules to plan your trip, but expect possible delays and allow plenty of time due to expected heavy traffic conditions.
Visit the Service Advisories page to find out if your bus will be rerouted and what stops it will serve during this event.
While most buses that operate on surface streets in the affected areas will be rerouted, riding transit is still the best way for spectators to get close to the event, as traffic will be congested and parking limited. Rerouted buses still go close to the marathon course.

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