TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday on the move

(SDOT MAP with travel times/video links; is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE)

6:57 AM: Will this morning’s commute be any better than the past two days? The next few hours will tell. No current incidents in, or on the major routes from, West Seattle. No view of the high bridge right now, though, as neither of SDOT’s cameras are working.

FAUNTLEROY BOULEVARD WALKING TOUR: If you’re on the peninsula at midday today and interested in the Fauntleroy Boulevard project, the first of two walking tours is set for noon-1:30 pm today, starting outside LA Fitness at 39th/Alaska/Fauntleroy.

    Took the early 56 at 6:37, which was 7 minutes late but no traffic and we got to downtown before 7.

    I took the 21 local at about 7:20 or so.  It was late, but the commute was a lot better, and there wasn’t even the lineup of cars in the bus lane on Avalon.

    #55 bus that was full left the junction at 7:50am turned south on Fauntleroy and finally stopped around Findlay. Driver could not tell us that another bus was coming for us.

      That was a real mess, wasn’t it? I got him to stop from making the right on a side street up the hill towards California with traffic circles since I knew he’d get stuck, but something possessed him to try and make that U-turn at Findlay, where he got stuck. I tried to tell him to just continue to California to make the right. Oh well …

       What frustrated me most was that he said nothing and was just sitting there. I was in the front and had to call out to ask him what we were waiting for, and then he said that he had called for help and another bus was on the way. But he should have made an announcement so people in the back could hear that. Instead, almost everyone got off the bus.

      I decided against reporting him since I figured he’s going to get in enough trouble for what happened and didn’t want to add to it.
