Editor’s Note: It’s been brought to my attention that what’s being marketed as an improvement for Ballard, is probably a degradation in service. Slower and fewer choices seem to be the approach. Stay tuned for further information. As an association, we may well want to advocate for changes to their plans. And as individual businesses as well.
When Metro launches the new RapidRide C and D lines in September 2012, they will be changing existing bus service to improve the transit system and provide more connections to jobs, schools, and other destinations in Seattle, Shoreline, Burien, Tukwila, SeaTac, and Des Moines. Now is the time for the community to review Metro’s system improvement concepts and share their ideas.
Metro will be hosting a number of public meetings, community partner conversations, and information tables throughout November to get feedback on proposed system improvement concepts in Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Greenwood, Burien, Des Moines, West Seattle, White Center, South Park, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, University District, South Lake Union and Shoreline, and other neighborhoods and communities.
More detailed information about the system improvement concepts and a survey will be online after October 21, at www.kingcounty.gov/metro/haveasay.
