WATER TAXI: Metro adds trips for Wednesday night’s Coldplay concert

They did it for Taylor Swift … for Beyoncé … and now they’re doing it for Coldplay: Adding later West Seattle Water Taxi trips so people going to the sold-out concert can get back here by water. From Metro‘s announcement for the added trips tomorrow (Wednesday, September 20th):

Heading home to West Seattle after the concert? The King County Water Taxi is scheduled for six trips from Pier 50 at starting at 7:30 p.m. (7:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m. and 12:15 a.m.)

The water taxi will have five trips from West Seattle starting at 8 p.m. (8 p.m., 9 p.m., 10 p.m., 11:00 p.m. and 12:30 a.m.)

If you’d rather ride the bus, Metro says they’ll add trips on three RapidRide lines, including C and H, which serve West Seattle.

    Awesome news, thank you.  Saw this earlier – question not answered on UDOT’s site- will the shuttles still be running? Would be lovely to leave the car home.

      I’ll ask first thing in the am and update with whatever they say.

        No shuttles tonight.

    Can’t we just keep this all year round? Why aren’t we a real city still? Other cities have late bus and transit service…even Portland does. Why can’t we? Some of us are out late and don’t want to Uber!

    Second Jeff’s comment and also am frustrated that there seems to be no connectivity/communication between ferry and shuttles.In the spirit of being proactive rather than a CAVE person (citizens against virtually everything, lol) is there a contact in WSDOT that’s worth reaching out to?

      Hi, this isn’t WSDOT, which operates state ferries. This is King County Metro. You can contact them for feedback, also King County elected representatives (Executive Dow Constantine, Councilmember Joe McDermott).

    I noticed a lot of first time light rail riders inadvertently hopping on the Sounder (instead of Link) in Tukwila today without realizing the last southbound train leaves town at 6:30. I helped out best I could but that is a common mistake between those stations.

Sorry, comment time is over.
