Reminder: Time to weigh in on planned Metro cuts to Capitol Hill routes

Screen-Shot-2013-11-07-at-11.26.52-AM-400x336Some of the kids from Stevens Elementary have their parents rallying for the 12. Riders of the 2 have gone through this before. Who will stand for route 25?

There’s a big slate of potential changes for bus routes on and across Capitol Hill given the seeming unlikelihood of Olympia coming up with a realistic plan for transportation funding.

Tuesday brings a public airing of “community feedback” about the proposed cuts:

Downtown Seattle Service Reduction Public Meeting
Tue, December 10, 12pm – 2pm
Where: Union Station, 401 S Jackson Street, Seattle
Created by kcmetrofuture@gmail.com
Description:  Come talk with Metro staff about the service reduction proposal. The meeting will be an open house format – with the option to participate in a short, interactive presentation and small group discussion from 1-1:30 pm.

If you aren’t the public meeting type and, like CHS, are booked between 12 and 2p, you can provide feedback on the cutbacks to community.relations@kingcounty.gov and via Metro’s service survey.

  1. OOOOH , please do not disturb Bus route # 25…the more we try get out of our cars the more services are cut…NOOOO..
    Please start licensing bicycles (who also use our streets/roads) and use that money to keep buses ramped up..
    Thank you…

    • I second a bike license fee. It’s time bike riders contribute something to their exclusive use “Green Bicycle Blocks” and “Street Bicycle Tracks”. Peace
