Why do we need Bus Hubs?
After finishing their trips, Metro buses often wait for a few minutes before starting their next trips. These planned layovers are important. They help late buses start their next trips on time and allow bus drivers to take their breaks, helping them stay alert behind the wheel. Additional bus hub benefits:
- Supports expansion of bus service to new neighborhoods.
- Free street space for other uses by moving “out of service buses” into off-street hubs.
How can you help?
The City is amending the Land Use Code to allow for bus hubs in downtown Seattle and Metro’s first site will be located in Eastlake. We’re seeking input through an online open house through Wed, Jan 31.
