If you ride the number 28 bus from Greenwood or Phinney to downtown, you may have seen the bus rider alert notices at bus stops. Metro is eliminating 56 bus stops between Denny Way and North 145th Street. That’s about 42 percent of all the stops.
Metro says it’s increasing the spacing between bus stops to reduce emissions and fuel consumption, reduce operating costs and speed up service. Metro estimates that about 25 percent of riders will need to catch their bus at a different stop when the changes are implemented on Sunday, April 4.
You can call the Route 28 Hotline at 206-296-4511 for more information and to leave a comment about the changes. Comments will be accepted through March 19.
