WWRHAH Community Council hosts King County Metro
Tuesday, June 4th, 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Chief Sealth International High School Library
2600 SW Thistle St Seattle, WA 98126
On Tuesday, June 4th, from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM, King County Metro will be at Chief Sealth High School in West Seattle to speak to residents of Arbor Heights, Roxhill, and Westwood about upcoming and previous cuts to their service areas and bus routes.
This will take the place of our regular monthly Westwood/Roxhill/Arbor Heights (WWRHAH) Community Council meeting. Please take the time to attend this very important community discussion, as it affects and impacts every single one of us that lives in these neighborhoods. People from all neighborhoods are welcome to attend.
Why you should be aware of what is happening, in addition:
- If you are a bus commuter, you may see longer delays between bus service or your bus stop may be removed. Your bus route itself may be removed.
- If you are a car commuter, the traffic for your drive and travel time WILL increase if the buses are cut. Nearly all West Seattle bus commuters own cars–we’ll be forced back into those cars.
- If you commute toward the direction of downtown, the West Seattle Bridge and 1st Avenue South Bridge will become choke points.
- Combine this bus route cutting with the SR-99 Viaduct going away soon for our new Deep Bore Tunnel, and it will get ugly trying to drive out of West Seattle.
Here are the proposed bus service reductions from a graphic that King County Metro created. Red lines will be cut. Blue lines will be reduced service:
Please come to this important meeting and discussion.
