The National Weather Service is forecasting snow and ice in King County, Pierce County, and Snohomish County over the next several days which may have an impact on regional transportation. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your commute during these challenging conditions:

Be prepared

Sounder Train

All trains are scheduled to operate regular service. Please anticipate potential delays on both the N Line and S Line trains. It is recommended to continue arriving at stations for scheduled departure times.

ST Express buses

ST Express buses may go on snow reroute at any time. Road conditions can change quickly causing reroutes or stop closures with little to no advanced notice. You may see smaller bus sizes being used on your routes, and experience reduced operating speeds. Please expect significant delays throughout the service day, should adverse weather impact any part of our region.

For safety, it is advised to wait for buses at posted bus stops on flat portions of cleared arterials or at major transfer points, such as Park & Ride lots and Transit Centers where there may be multiple service options. Please use caution at stations and bus stops. Sound Transit will have crews out in the field working to clear snow and ice from our facilities but be prepared in case your facility has not been cleared by the time you arrive.
