Transportation Woes

Sounder Parking by Slightlynorth

Police were called to the Greyhound bus station at 8th and Stewart with reports that the media was inciting unhappy Greyhound passengers after service was called earlier tonight. Police and Greyhound staff eventually calmed passengers down.

Police have been called to the Sounder station downtown after the southbound to Tacoma train carrying Seahawks fans became stuck and had to return to the station. Police are waiting to calm down the angry passengers.

Many SeaTac passengers are stranded after Alaska and Horizon air had to cancel the rest of their flights after running out of deicer. Rumor has it that SeaTac will close until Tuesday, but that rumor has yet to be proven. Seattlites across the country are stranded at other airports due to weather conditions, flight cancellations and problems at SeaTac.

Taxi service is sporadic or unavailable.

Metro continues to have sporadic service due to weather conditions.

If you go anywhere, try to have a contingency plan in case you can’t return. Keep warm blankets in your car for example, or plan on having somewhere to stay near your destination. Be patient. Things should start returning to normal sometime Monday evening or Tuesday, but could take a few days to really get going again.
