As disappointed in the likely failure of yesterday's vote to fund Metro, the proposed changes that will happen without the funding actually improve some of my options.
For week day service, the frequency of my main bus route, the 70, will go from every 15 minutes to every 10 minutes during peak hours. This is offset by losing the 25 and 66. The 25 was lightly used, but the 66 was faster to get downtown and that hurts a bit.
In the evenings, Eastlake loses the 66, 71 and 72. However, the 73 will be increased to every 15 or 30 minutes and will run later. This is about a wash.
On weekends, no 66, 71 or 72 anymore. But the 73 will run every 10 to 12 minutes and we'll gain an every 20 minute 70. This might be a slight improvement. #seattle #metro #transit
