Monday, May 29 is Memorial Day, and, by 46-year tradition, the final day of four days of the Northwest Folklife Festival.
Sadly, the monorail continues its 20+year tradition of not being a free transfer to get to the festival. Ironically, it wasn’t even listed as one of the top four options for getting to the festival, despite the Seattle Center having a vested financial interest in promoting monorail ridership.
Moreover, Pronto Bikeshare won’t be an option for transitting that last mile this year.
On the plus side, Kitsap Transit will have some limited service on Memorial Day, breaking its tradition of shutting down for the day.
There will also be special Sounder service to the Sounders’ high-noon match Saturday against the Portland Timbers.
The full list of Sunday and Memorial Day service levels for transit agencies around the region is below the fold.
