Along with the opening of new Everett and Overlake transit centers next week, several bus-route changes go into effect tomorrow and Monday — in most cases more frequent trips, plus a new commuter route in Sammamish. Some bus stops will be relocated near new transit centers. The changes include:


• A new Sammamish-to-Seattle line, Metro Route 216, leaves the Sammamish Plateau four times each weekday morning with limited stops west of Issaquah and returns from downtown Seattle four times in the afternoon. One hundred new park-and-ride spots have been leased at Sammamish Hills Lutheran Church, just north of Skyline High School.

• Expanded service on Sound Transit Route 245, Seattle-Overlake-Redmond, which will run every 15 minutes at rush hour. Route 246 will be discontinued.

• Route adjustments for buses stopping at the new Overlake Transit Center near Microsoft for Metro routes 222, 225, 229, 230, 232, 245, 247, 256 and 268.

• An additional Sound Transit Route 554 trip will leave Issaquah at 8:45 a.m. weekdays to Seattle.
