Shuttle Changes for the 2023-24 School Year

At the start of the 2023-24 school year, Seattle Public Schools (SPS) will no longer provide supplemental shuttle service for high schools. This change affects Ballard, Ingraham, Lincoln, and Chief Sealth International high schools. Metro service is now free of charge to all students under 18 and route coverage has increased citywide.

*This decision does not impact students who receive transportation services as part of the special education services as identified in their IEP.

Cleveland routes will also be discontinued. They were not shuttles, but they were included as part of service reductions.

Why are high school shuttles being eliminated? 

Supplemental high school shuttles were created to provide additional service for a few neighborhoods. Since SPS is facing a significant projected budget deficitSPS Transportation services are being discontinued to reduce costs.
