From King County Councilmember Larry Gossett: Metro is already soliciting public comment on the second service adjustments that are intended to go into effect in September. The current proposal is available on Metro’s Have a Say website, click here. During this round of service adjustments, the District 2 buses that are most impacted are in the Central Area (Routes 2, 3, 4, 14, and 27). Metro is hosting an Open House on February 27th at Washington Middle School from 6 pm – 8 pm. I will be there and I hope you will join me to learn more about the proposed bus changes and what they mean to District 2 residents. I want to hear from you, so please email me at [email protected]
Even though there seems to be good news for now, Metro has been quiet on the details of the promise not to change the #2 and they will not be represented on the web page until sometime later in March. Try to attend to let Metro hear your comments. Queen Ann (not just Seattle Center) and the #2 with its connection to the #13 represent important connections between housing along Seneca and the Queen Anne Community Center. Let Metro know not to begin chopping away at the route. There are many subtle relationships that need to be openly discussed in collaboration with the community.
We want bus routes that move quickly in strait lines. Not these routes than lumber around the neighborhood all day long. The changes proposed by Metro for the CD routes like number two are exactly what we want. See you at school.
Recommend keeping the #2 as is. Careful consideration of all impacts in collaboration with the community to ensure good transit. It is already understood that the #2 is a very productive route in the Metro system.
