Metro released the narratives (maps to come) to proposed revisions to original proposed changes yesterday afternoon, along with presenting a number of ways to comment: http://metro.kingcounty.gov/have-a-say/projects/restructuring-system.html
The highlights to this for the Central District are:
- The #27 will be restored to serve Leschi and Coleman Park during the day. Frequency would decrease on weekends to once every hour. And it it will be E Yesler Way until Boren Avenue where it will be rerouted to Spring Street, Seneca Street, and Third Avenue rather than continuing along E Yesler Way to downtown Seattle. Then it will continue as the #33 on Third Avenue and vise versa on return trips.
- The proposals to delete all of the #2 except the portion from Lake Washington to 12th Avenue with a reroute on Madison to the ferries where it would turn around to the Lake again remains in this proposal. This would be staggered with the #12 along new Madison portion. Saturday service for the #2 along E. Union will decrease from every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes on Saturday.
- The deletion of the #4 remains.
- Proposed frequency increase in the #11 is no longer proposed.
- Proposals for the #14 remain to delete service between 31st Avenue S/S McClellan Street and Mount Rainier Drive S. at all times and on Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle after 7 p.m. and to separate the north and south parts of the route. Take it off Third Avenue on the north and link it with the #1 on south on Third. (map please)
As soon as Metro releases the new maps I will post them and links to them. The pictures here are a history of the stories that have appeared with first being a map of all the first proposed revisions to central routes.
Maps are coming, but at the moment the drop down menu at the right provides a narrative on each of the current revisions to the revisions that were presented in November 2011.
The period for further comment will continue throughout February and will end February 29. Metro will then prepare a recommendation for King County Council to consider in the spring probably April.
