Commuter bus route to change tomorrow

New: Nov. 4, 12:16 p.m.
Sound Transit bus riders on Route 554 between Seattle and Issaquah should prepare for a route change in downtown Seattle.
The regional transit agency rerouted buses on Route 554 and other routes to a bus stop at Fourth Avenue, just north of Pike Street and adjacent to Westlake Park. The change goes into effect Nov. 5 to help speed evening rush-hour trips.
Officials closed the former bus stop at Fourth Avenue and Union Street to accommodate a change on Route 522 between Seattle and Woodinville.
Transit planners said the change should save several minutes getting out of downtown Seattle during evening rush hours.
