Tolling in the new Highway 99 tunnel has finally started. Today is the first regular weekday commute to feel the impacts (as yesterday was Veterans Day).
WSDOT is encouraging tunnel users to avail themselves of the Good-to-Go Pass, by giving pass users a $2 discount. (If only someone could explain this principle to King County Metro and/or the County Council…)
Tolls are as follows:
- $1.00, weekends and 11 pm to 6 am
- $1.25, 9 am to 3 pm and 6 pm to 11 pm
- $1.50, 7 am to 9 am
- $2.25, 3 pm – 6 pm
- $2.00, for not using the Good-to-Go Pass
Let’s talk about what you see happening today. Are there any impacts to your bus route?
One thing that will impact bus routes today will be the Sounders’ MLS Cup Victory Parade, which will take over 4th Ave from sometime before noon, when the parade is scheduled to start at Westlake Plaza, until 1:30 pm, when the parade terminates at the Seattle Center.
If you haven’t already signed up for travel alerts specific to your route, now is a good time to do so.
This is an open thread.
