Announcement Routes 540, 541, 542, 545, 566, 577 & 578 Bus route changes coming in our 2020 Service Plan

Posted: Dec 4 - 3:44 p.m. (updated: Dec 10 - 12:12 p.m.)

On Thursday, Nov. 21, the Sound Transit Board approved the agency’s 2020 Service Plan. It includes a revision to Route 541, based on growing ridership demand across SR 520 and public input during our autumn 2019 outreach period.

We’ll continue to operate some of the highest ridership trips on Route 541 while also implementing the new Route 544, which will serve Overlake Transit Center, South Kirkland Park-and-Ride and South Lake Union. Route 540 will no longer continue after the March Service Change next year.
We’ll implement these changes in March 2020, in coordination with King County Metro’s North Eastside Mobility Plan.
