  1. Has Metro done any analysis of the operating cost savings (and social welfare benefits) that measure like this create?

    1. As reported in the post I linked, to the original plan was to save about $50,000 a year in operating costs.

  2. This is great news! I wasn’t looking forward to walking down a dark block to the new stop on Monday!

  3. Is Metro’s bus stop program just one of stop elimination? Seems to me that might not always be best practice; some cases call for eliminating two stops and then putting on new one in between the two that are eliminated. Of course this means creating a new bus stop, and that takes staff time and field work.

  4. Interesting to see Metro transit advertising signs on bus shelters in Seattle. Let’s hope it’s a precursor to having regular advertising panels on them, to generate some revenue for transit operations.

      1. Given the financial situation of Metro I don’t really have a problem with a little more advertizing if it means saving some service, getting some nice bus shelters, or maybe some real-time information displays.
