Welcome Seattle Times readers!
“10 lame reasons to delay mass transit” has ten pretty amusing reasons to delay a transit vote – like “you can worry more about climate change” and “standing all the way home [on the packed bus] improves your calf muscles and physical stamina.”
I have one – if we wait two more years, the people living in new development in downtown will have no way to get to work. They’ll start more small businesses!
If you’ve got more, share ’em. Also, vote on the Seattle Times poll for light rail this year!
In the meantime, we have a great transit package to pass, building light rail as well as investing immediately in increasing express bus and Sounder service. This is the best opportunity we’ve had in forty years to connect our region – Sound Transit 2 will create real regional solutions to our transportation mess. Keep checking back here for news on the package, what it will do for you, and why we need it!
