Bus boost

One Metro route through eastern West Seattle just got extra service as part of the Transit Now tax increase that voters passed countywide in November. Route 120 goes between downtown and Burien via Delridge and White Center. Besides expansion of that route and several others, the county says it’s working on the new express routes promised in the TN initiative, including one (see this map) to get more of West Seattle downtown (especially once The Viaduct is out of service — speaking of which, the No Tunnel Alliance launches its campaign tomorrow, days after the kickoff for Not Another Elevated Viaduct — can’t find any official site yet for the No/No faction).

    Friends of Seattle http://www.friendsofseattle.org/ is a new group that could be considered no/no because they support the surface+transit option. Peoples Waterfront Coaltion http://www.peopleswaterfront.org/has been around longer and they also support a surface solution.

    I’m a frequent 120 rider, living right on Delridge, so I was very exited about this. Now I just wish they’d work on slightly increasing service on the 128. Every hour on Sundays and half hour otherwise is really not frequent enough to make it a regular transportation option.

    I can’t view the map Admin… But anyways, Metro needs to add more times especially at night and another route to Alki from the Junction. I’d rather get on a moped or the bus to go and eat on the weekends down there. So, I don’t frequent Alki because of its congestional parking problems. But maybe I’ll buy a cheap moped and screem down the backroads to Alki. They need a bus like the 54 to run down from the Junction to Avalon connection thru to Harbor island Road all the way around back up to the Junction again.

Sorry, comment time is over.
