Staying Healthy on Transit

King County Metro’s safety guidelines are in place to keep us safe. Here are things you need to know before you go:

  • It is required to wear a mask or face covering at transit stops and on buses
  • Do not travel if you are sick.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other passengers and Metro staff.
  • Be aware of service reductions and coach capacity guidelines.
  • Board and exit by the rear door if you are able to.
  • Allow plenty of time for your transit trip.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.

Metro fares remain suspended through September. All Sound Transit Express bus service – including ST Express bus routes operated by Metro – requires a $3.25 flat fare. Link and Sounder trains are charging full fares.
