Link is coming to Capitol Hill and Husky Stadium in early 2016. Metro and Sound Transit are working with the public to plan how bus service will connect with new light rail.
Thanks to all who provided feedback during our first phase of outreach.
We heard from nearly 6,000 people last November. You told us how you’re currently using transit and how you’d like to use it in the future. View a summary of what you told us.
More than 150 of you applied to serve on our Sounding Board (a community advisory group). We had the difficult choice of selecting 25 members from an amazing pool of applicants. The Sounding Board began meeting in January. You can find a list of Sounding Board members and a schedule of meetings on the project website. The Sounding Board meetings are open for the public to observe, but there is no public comment period.
We’ve just added some background information to the website, and we invite you to use it to plan along with us. You’ll find a background report and info sheets for Metro routes that are mentioned in the background report. Along with Metro’s service guidelines and the public engagement summary from our first round of outreach, these documents form the basis for our planning of the bus change concepts we intend to share with the public in March.
This month, we’ll reflect back to you some of the things you shared last November in a series of blog posts. In early March, we’ll be back in touch to share bus change concepts and opportunities to provide feedback throughout the month.
