[nfbwatlk] FW: Metro snow routes & some route cancellations continue; Winter storm expected

Hey I am from Pennsylvania.  I literally remember calling my college to see
if classes were canceled.  In Pittsburgh where I am from, relocating now  to
college in Erie PA a hundred plus miles north, classes would have been
canceled with a foot of snow.  The lady who answered the phone treated me
like I was nuts for even thinking of such a thing.  So off I went with my
white cane poking the snow through a foot of snow up to my knees in some
places to college classes.  Only one class was canceled of the three.
Classes were more then half empty.

With a major snow storm forecast to hit King County on Wednesday, King
County Metro 
Transit is keeping buses on snow

further notice, and is canceling up to 30
individual bus routes Wednesday morning, due to the predicted severity of
the storm.

If there is major snowfall, bus service will be significantly disrupted and
delayed. People should 
avoid traveling if at all possible. 

Due to the weather forecast for treacherous and impassable roadways, Metro
is scaling back 
some service on Wednesday morning in order to be able to operate the rest of
its system as 
safely and reliably as possible. 

The routes expected to be canceled for Wednesday are: 
2EX, 38, 42, 45, 46, 51, 53, 79, 114, 161, 162, 175, 192, 193, 197, 
205, 210, 215, 216, 219, 224, 237, 251, 268, 277, 316 & 355.

Information about these Wednesday morning route cancellations is available
on Metro

forecasts and actual travel

these routes at any time during the day.

Updates to the online information begin as early as 4:00 AM, and continue as
needed until conditions improve.

All other Metro service will operate via snow routing with schedule delays
likely.

Though weather and road conditions in the morning may not be bad in your
area, delays and service 
disruptions can occur in other parts of the county and could affect bus
service in your area. Buses 
may also be chained, which means they have to travel at slower speeds. There
are usually more bus 
riders on snow days as well, which can also cause delays.

It is not possible to know when a bus will arrive at a specific location, or
to provide service updates 
about individual trips or stops.

Use regularly published

prepared for service delays or disruptions. Conditions and service impacts
can change rapidly.

If your bus does not have a pre-planned snow route, it will operate its
regular route, however service 
may be delayed due to weather and road conditions. If a bus is unable to
follow its pre-planned reroute, 
Metro will send a Transit Alert with an update as soon as we have
information about it. It is possible for
this process to be delayed.

During snow and other significant service disruptions, Metro makes every
effort to advise bus riders of 
changes in service, primarily through the posting of information on its Snow

of route-level Transit Alerts. It is generally not possible for Metro to
send alerts about delays or service 
disruptions on individual trips or at specific bus stops.

Additionally, Metro service covers all of King County. It is possible for
multiple conditions to exist 
simultaneously in different parts of the county. Buses that travel through
many areas, may be affected in 
some places and not others, and this can impact service in areas where
adverse conditions do not seem 
to exist. Your patience is appreciated when service is delayed.

Transit customers are advised to be well-prepared for the conditions and
wait for buses at posted bus stops 
on flat portions of cleared arterials or at major transfer points, such as
