Metro seeks opinions on changes to Eastside service

Help King County Metro Transit plan future routes.

The transit agency needs sounding board members for the Bellevue-Redmond Transit Connections project. The effort includes Eastside routes serving Issaquah riders.

Metro could change bus routes near the corridor scheduled to be served by the RapidRide B Line, part of the new bus rapid transit service. Plans call for the B Line to run between the Bellevue and Redmond transit centers via Crossroads and Overlake starting in fall 2011. Learn more about the project here.

In the meantime, Metro needs community members for a sounding board to provide advice about public outreach and about how changes to bus service could serve communities.

The agency encourages people to apply if they ride the bus frequently, or if they live or work in a community served by certain Eastside bus routes. Apply here by Monday.

    The whole solution is very simple.

    Run neighborhood shuttles continously to the closest P & R, at the P & R have busses going all directions, plus the shuttles.

    And make fares reasonable not rediculous!!

    How about PRT?? This would be an ideal attraction for Kemper Freeman or the waterfront. It would really draw the crowds!!

    Metro does not seem to want anyone to know about it.

    Look up these web sites:
