[Update 7:23am: Link is in the tunnel again. Definitely the best option today.]
[Update 2: Spokesman Bruce Gray says “crews did a routine maintenance check on one of the traction power substations Thursday night and had an issue with a voltage monitor when bringing it back online to start Friday a.m. service.” The Link outage had nothing to do with the snow.]
There’s snow on the ground. Remember tracking tools like OneBusAway do not work when buses are on snow routing. You can follow the mayhem at Metro (all buses currently on snow routes), Sound Transit, Community Transit (lightly affected), and Pierce Transit. Expect delays for everything
— since 5:58 even Link has not been serving the tunnel for an undisclosed reason*. If your commute is freeway-dependent then WSDOT may help as well.
Also, walk to the top or bottom of the hill to catch a bus. Your bus may not be able to stop on a steep slope. Share your tips and stories in the comments.
*Really not the day for this kind of thing to happen!
Hopefully they’ll fix it soon.
