With University of Washington classes out next week, be prepared for service reductions on several King County Metro routes, including routes 31, 32, 48, 65, 67, 68, 75, 167, 197, 271, 277, 372, and 373. Metro will be running the “No UW” schedule (or as I will call it in the chart, “Less UW”) on weekdays from December 15, 2014 to January 2, 2015. Service levels will drop further, affecting many more routes, December 24 – January 2.
The full list of holiday service levels is below the fold.

Community Transit will run all local routes on regular weekday schedules Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but the only commuter routes going to Seattle will be 402, 413, 421, and 855.
On December 31. 2014, the Monorail will be open until 1:00 AM for the New Year’s Eve fireworks at the Space Needle. Due to regulations, the Monorail will carry its last passengers from Westlake Center to Seattle Center at approximately 11:15 PM. We will resume service from Seattle Center to Westlake Center once we receive the ‘ALL CLEAR’ from the Fire Marshall (estimated to be 12:20 AM) – from this point we will carry passengers until 1:00 AM.
Most of the agencies have alert services you can sign up for to get the latest news about service alterations.
