From Skyway to Renton

7842 S 134th Street in Skyway. | Via Windermere

Metro route 101 carries riders from Skyway and Renton up into Sodo and downtown Seattle and back—whether they’re commuting or looking for a bus transfer. Instead of making a million stops along the way, this bus hops onto Interstate 5 after spending time on the Sodo Busway, not stopping again until it’s just south of the Seattle city limits.

Downtown, it follows the downtown transit tunnel until it emerges by Convention Place Station (which it stopped serving earlier this summer). It’ll experience a couple of changes coming up next year, too, when all buses emerge from the tunnel to join the busy transit corridor on Third Avenue.

Once it gets out of Seattle, it heads through Skyway on Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, following the road as it turns into Sunset Boulevard. From there, it serves both the Renton Transit Center and the South Renton Park and Ride—meaning it also serves downtown Renton and Renton High School.

We found six notable homes along the route.
