    SDOT had failed to have Metro provide midday bus service in the Admiral district are they not aware that schools and colleges are open?  How do students get to and from school without decent bus service?   The 50 is not acceptable due to safety concerns at the Sodo transfer to Light Rail.  It is time to provide midday 56 57 service at least on a hourly headway.

Sorry, comment time is over.
