From King County Metro:
The region is in the midst of a second summer heat wave, with some communities looking at triple digit heat for the next 48 hours. During this time, some transit riders may experience temporary service delays or individual canceled trips.
It is not possible to know in advance which routes or trips may be affected, however Metro encourages riders to use information tools that we provide.
