Seattle Metro alerts

19 Nov

(This one’s for Seattle peeps.)

You know what’s not cute? Waiting outside in the snow for 2 hours for a bus that might never come. Now that the weather is turning colder, you can’t help but be reminded of last year’s Snowpocalypse and the Metro debacle *shiver*.

This year Metro is trying to up their communication efforts. Here are a couple things to know:

  • They’re implementing 70 emergency routes in the event of another storm. Click here to find your route.
  • You can also sign up to get emails and texts for your specific routes and for general Metro alerts. I’m having faith that they will actually send out alerts.

There are also various services like onebusaway to track your bus, and I’ve heard there are iPhone apps as well.

Let’s hope this year’s winter weather is a little gentler.
