    I now take the route 50 daily and a fellow passenger who is blind with a guide dog who is affected by the reroute was not on the bus as they normally are. Is there any kind of assistance provided for transit user during these reroutes so they get to their bus stop and destination?

      I am her friend. We spent a big chunk of time yesterday talking with King County metro. They basically said “sorry but you have to figure it out” there’s no other way to get from west Seattle to Columbia city. We don’t know what to do. She can walk up to avalon using Yancy St but the construction noises and random sidewalk closures from the construction could make every day different and disorienting.

      She’s taking lyft until she can figure out a safe way to walk through the construction site which changes often. Are other people just walking up Yancy St? Since the sidewalk on Genesee and Avalon is closed? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
