#SeattleSqueeze Alert: We’re adding a bus‐only lane on Cherry St between 1st and 3rd Avenues.

 Alert: 

Now that the new northbound SR 99 off-ramp is open near the stadiums, providing a route to downtown streets, our crews installed this bus-only lane to provide a quick path to 3rd Ave. This provides reliable service for transit and is an important way that we’re keeping transit moving during the #SeattleSqueeze.

Beginning at 9 AM today, we’re adding a bus-only lane on Cherry St between 1st and 3rd Avenues. This lane will be bus-only between 6 AM – 7 PM, Monday – Friday to maintain reliability for buses traveling along 1st Ave in order to get onto 3rd Ave.
