Metro is in the middle of a project to consolidate the stops on Route 16, eliminating 33 of the 109 stops between Denny Way and the Northgate Transit Center. Those 33 stops represent about 12% of the route’s riders. The consolidation will bring the mean stop distance from 850 feet to about 1,225 feet (3 blocks), which is closer to Metro’s ideal separation.
Rider alerts are already posted at the stops. Customers have until Nov. 6 to submit comments to 206-296-4511 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no webpage for the project. The 16 will cease serving those stops on Nov. 28th.
There’s also a map of revisions on the South end of the line. Thanks to Julia Hanke for the tip.
