Seattle Transit Tunnel hours extended, presaging LRT use

Written by 

Beginning today, the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel will operate later in the day, open until 1:00 a.m. instead of closing at 7:00 p.m. on weekdays and Saturday, and until midnight on Sundays. The tunnel will maintain its current opening hour of 5:00 a.m.

The extended hours immediately will allow 18 King County (Wash.) Metro and Sound Transit bus routes to operate later each day. The move also presages the addition of Sound Transit light rail transit services, which will share the tunnel with current bus services beginning July 18.
