    Make sure you check your bus routes for snow routes! Many buses will not use regular route and will avoid hills.

      Thanks! If and when the snow falls, we’ll have full coverage as always, including quick reference links such as bus routes. But for anybody who needs to plan ahead, you can look up your snow route via this Metro page:

    It’s just started snowing in north Burien, the Boulevard Park area, so if it’s not snowing in W Sea yet it probably will be soon!
