Hello Central, SVI and Siegal Ctr Staff/Faculty:
Below is a blurb from KC Metro regarding some proposed changes to bus routes once the Light Rail begins operations running from the UW to downtown with a stop at Central’s doorstep here on Broadway. Please consider taking some time to consider the proposed changes, then take the survey or consider attending one of the public hearings that will be held to discuss these options. I found it easier to simply click on the tab named “Explore routes in detail” because one can then just focus on the current bus route(s) one currently uses to see the proposed changes. For instance, in alternative #1 the proposal is to alter that portion of the 49 route on Pine St from/to downtown, moving that portion onto Madison St instead. Proposal 2 has no proposed changes to the 49. At any rate, this is the time to make your voice heard. For those of you who work directly with students please share this link with them also, thanks.
How will bus service change when Link light rail comes to Capitol Hill and the UW?
Have a Say between now and March 31
Link light rail is coming to Capitol Hill and Husky Stadium in early 2016. Metro and Sound Transit have developed two alternative concepts for how buses could work with light rail. These concepts include new and improved connections and changes to make transit more efficient, reliable, and easy to use.
Do you use or want to use transit in Capitol Hill, the University District, northeast Seattle, Eastlake, Madison Valley, the Central Area, Montlake, South Lake Union, or along SR-520?
Tell us what you think about the two alternatives:
- Fill out our survey
- Come to a meeting
Tell us how you might use these alternative concepts and how you would make them better. Your input will help shape our proposal. You will get an opportunity to comment on that proposal in May before King County Council and the Sound Transit Board make decisions about what bus changes will be made after Link light rail service comes to Capitol Hill and the UW.
