Fourth of July daytime parades and nighttime fireworks are planned across King County, and are expected to draw tens of thousands of people. As riders explore how to get to these events using transit, they can review planned reroutes and service adjustments that are scheduled to be in place for the holiday.

In observance of Independence Day on July 4, Metro Transit will operate a Sunday schedule, with 25 additional buses put in service following the major fireworks display at Lake Union. Metro offices, including the Customer Information office and the Lost and Found, will be closed. If a Metro bus route does not normally operate on Sunday, it will not operate on Independence Day.

Use Metro’s online Regional Trip Planner to plan transit trips to and from locations and events. Added bus or light rail trips will not be reflected in the trip planner results.

Visit Metro Online (http://metro.kingcounty.gov/) for information about Metro Transit’s routes, schedules and trip planning, and for information about service provided by Metro’s regional partners – the City of Seattle, Community Transit, Everett Transit, the King County Water Taxi, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit and the Washington State Ferries.
