Bus trips cut due to low ridership

Beginning Monday, three bus trips on King County Metro line 119 — which runs between the north-end ferry terminal and Dockton on weekdays — will be discontinued.

The southbound trips leaving the north-end ferry terminal at 7 p.m. and 7:25 p.m. will be cancelled, as will the northbound trip leaving Dockton at 7:36 p.m.

The trips are among several trips and routes county-wide that will be discontinued this month due to low ridership, said Linda Thielke, a spokesperson for the county Department of Transportation.

Thielke suggested that some who rode the 119 bus leaving the north-end ferry terminal at 7 p.m. might consider riding the 118 bus that leaves the terminal at the same time and serves the same stops as far south as 204th Street.
