Metro Changes Snoqualmie Valley Bus Route 628

Metro riders in the Snoqualmie Valley will now be able to enjoy a later trip to the Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride on weekday mornings.

Route 628 provides a weekday connection between the North Bend Outlet Mall, Mt. Si Senior Center, North Bend Park and Ride, Center-Ridge Park and Ride, and Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride. It operates 24 daily trips between North Bend and the Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride on weekdays during the Peak (morning and evening) periods, making stops along the way in Snoqualmie.

Starting the week of September 28th, a new 8:25AM trip will leave the North Bend Outlet Mall and travel west through Snoqualmie to the Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride. The underused 4:54AM trip from North Bend has been eliminated to make the new later trip possible.

 

Recently, Metro’s ridership analysis found that there were very few riders on the first morning trip, but many riders later in the morning. Some riders had even suggested to drivers that it would be preferable to have more service later in the morning.

The service change will respond to these customer requests by adding a trip in the late morning (8:25AM from North Bend, 7:55AM from Issaquah) and eliminating the underused first morning trip (4:54AM from North Bend, 5:52AM from Issaquah).
