We haven’t had one of these in a while.
Route 32 will be replaced by Link. It’s basically the express version of the 36, it runs from Rainier Beach to SODO and then Downtown, much like Link does. It’s only five runs in the morning and another four at night, so it won’t mean anything significant for Metro (another route likely already gets the hours).
In 1996, the same year some folks older than I am passed Sound Move, measure 32 would have authorized lottery funds for light rail in Oregon. It failed, the count was about 660,000 to 700,000. Since then, the Oregon legislature has approved lottery funds (presumably multiple times) for light rail construction, although another public vote failed in 1998. I haven’t found a solid timeline – does anyone know when light rail has passed at the ballotbox in Oregon?
32 is also the number of times Mike Lindblom made a dig at light rail in the Seattle Times today.
