Christmas and New Years Day fall on Sunday this year, so both are celebrated on Monday by various transit agencies.
Washington State Ferries adds and subtracts some runs on Christmas and New Years Day, so check your route’s schedule and alerts, and be sure to make a reservation if the route allows it.
Some services extend later on New Year’s Eve. Link Light Rail and Tacoma Link will have extended hours that night. The monorail runs until 11:15 New Years Eve, shuts down for an hour by order of the Fire Marshall, and then reopens 12:20-1:00 am.
For all three days of each coming long weekend, Link Light Rail will be running as 3-car trains all day. Board the rear car, as that will continue to be the most spacious one.
Other altered service patterns on surrounding days include:
For all agencies running weekday service the day after Christmas and New Years Day, I verified it with the agency if it wasn’t spelled out clearly on their website. The list of agencies around the region, and their service levels, is below the fold.
