The other problem was the difficulty in getting the information out to people who needed it. It may be essentially impossible to deliver timely information to those who aren’t online, but Metro has greatly improved what came before:
- This page has a handy color-coded map of which areas of the county are experiencing reroutes and to what degree that’s the case.
- Metro now lets you sign up for personalized alerts that you can receive by email or SMS. It doesn’t quite have all the bells and whistles I’d desire, but is a great step forward.
With typical luck and timing this was being announced almost simultaneously with Seattle Metro service beiug heavily disrupted by the Officer Bretton memorial procession, with almost no useful and timely information.
