Monday, February 11

Our commenters batted around some ideas from possible changes to Snoqualmie Valley service in a previous post.
From the Metro Future Blog post:
During the meetings, Metro will outline proposed adjustments that reflect the community’s desire to see improved connections between Duvall and Redmond and a more reliable and better connected valley transit network. All day service to Snoqualmie Ridge — a growing residential and employment center in the valley — was another priority shared by stakeholders.
In addition to these service adjustments, the plan points to the role vanpools and vanshares can play in providing additional transit opportunities. The effort also looks at longer-term ideas that can be explored in future years to provide more integrated transit service to valley residents.
The proposal will be available beginning Feb. 7 on Metro’s Have-a-Say website, where you will also be able to share your feedback via an online survey.
Since September’s major restructure to West Seattle and Ballard (which, by the publicly available results, has proved a smashing success in West Seattle), Metro’s service change proposals have ranged from insipid (I-90) to nonexistent (RapidRide E), so I’m not particularly hopeful here, but I suppose Metro could pleasantly surprise me.
