Two important Metro updates.
On July 21, the Convention Place Station bus stops will relocate to 9th Ave, between Olive Way and Pine St (see green circles on map below) to make way for continued Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) expansion. The 7 impacted bus routes serving the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel are:
- Metro routes 41, 74, 101, 102, 150, 255
- Sound Transit Express 550
These routes will serve the new stops on 9th Ave (instead of at Convention Place Station), traveling to/from the tunnel on a newly built temporary ramp, between the tunnel and 9th Ave. They will also continue to serve stops within the tunnel.
Around March 23, 2019, buses are expected to switch to surface streets with continued WSCC construction. That will leave the tunnel to be used exclusively by Link light rail. For more information, visit the King County Metro Convention Place Station link.
