Open house in Ballard next Monday on Sept. service change proposal

The latest set of proposals for next September’s bus service changes reflects feedback we heard from the community last fall. Now Metro is seeking a second round of input to help shape our final September recommendation, which will be submitted to the King County Council later this spring.

Please join us next Monday at an open house in Ballard to learn more and share your thoughts about Metro's suggestions for improving its transit system.

What’s in the proposal

Here’s a rundown of some of the revised proposals you’ll see for Seattle’s north-end neighborhoods:

Metro wants to make transfers easier, improve bus connections in North Seattle, and avoid duplicating service on the RapidRide D Line when it starts in the fall. But we’re now proposing to keep some trips on Route 15 Express to prevent bus overcrowding in this corridor during peak hours. Routes 17 Express and 18 Express will also keep their current routing to complement this change.

During public outreach in November, we suggested replacing Routes 26, 28, and 30 and revising Route 28 Express as part of a set of related changes in North Seattle. We also suggested revising Route 5 to use Fremont Avenue N and Dexter Avenue N, and replace Route 26 with alternate service. We’ve decided not to move forward with these changes now, but will consider making changes in this area when we launch RapidRide E Line in 2013.

The current proposal also includes some revisions to Route 30 and the planned routing of new Route 32 to Uptown via Fremont and Wallingford.
