Weigh in on Metro’s proposed bus changes after Link light rail comes to Capitol Hill and UW in 2016

May 19th, 2015 by Doree

The new Link light rail stations in Capitol Hill and at the University of Washington will affect bus routes throughout the city once they open in 2016. Metro has proposed changes to 32 routes, including the 28 and 48 in Phinney Ridge and Greenwood, to streamline regional transit.

Route 28 Local and the 28 Express would be combined, making weekday buses more frequent. Route 48 would be more frequent both on weekdays and weekends.

Fill out Metro’s survey by May 31 to tell them how these changes will affect you.
