Third Avenue Transit Improvements

August 16, 2018

    Starting on Monday, August 20th Third Avenue transit improvements will go into effect!

    The biggest change you’ll see is Third Avenue (from Stewart Street to just south of Yesler Way – see map) will be reserved for buses and bikers ONLY, from morning to night, 6 AM – 7 PM, seven days a week.

    What this means for transit riders & bikers: 

    • Faster travel times ALL day long!
    • Quicker commutes
    • Less Traffic

    What this means for drivers: 

    • NO cars will be allowed on Third Avenue from 6AM to 7PM, seven days a week
    • Cars will be allowed on Third Avenue, from 7 PM to 6 AM, seven days a week
    • No left turns off Third Avenue, 24/7.
    • No on-street parking on Prefontaine Place, 6 AM – 7 PM, seven days a week.
    • Permitted commercial vehicles will be allowed to use Third Avenue, from 9 AM – 3 PM and 7 PM – 6 AM, seven days a week.
