Wintery Commute Update

Hooray.  More snow. (grrrrr….)

There’s a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning, but it doesn’t look like enough to mess up the commute too much. There’s a little bit that has stuck to residential streets, but major roads like 23rd are bare and wet. It’s probably safe to assume that some of the steeper hills will be too slick for 2-wheel-drive cars to manage (refer to our CD Slopes Map and avoid the black diamond routes).

All of our bus routes appear to be running with delays of up to 10 minutes.  Refer to sites like My Bus (23rd & Jefferson, 23rd & Union, 23rd & Yesler, 23rd & Jackson)  to get a prediction for your stop.  So far there are no route changes or cancellations listed on Metro’s adverse weather page.

Something different in your part of the ‘hood?  See places where people are having problems?  Leave a comment below.

  1. I took 23rd to Yesler to downtown this morning in my compact, front-wheel-drive Toyota Echo. And I KNOW I am due for tires. No problems on the steep hill by 6th, heading down. Didn’t try the other direction, but the road was just wet there.
