At long last, SDOT has released its draft Transit Master Plan. It’s loaded with goodness, but most of you probably care most about the project list. I’ve already covered the high capacity transit corridors in gory detail, but I’ve only discussed one of the 12 other bus priority corridors.
Chapter three is where it really gets into corridors, with detailed maps to show the priority treatments in each corridor. Fortunately for my weary typing fingers, there’s an excellent summary chart included, below the fold:
Keep in mind that the current VLF plan allocates about $40m in total to these kinds of projects. All 12 corridors would add up to $184.6m. Combined with the full streetcar and BRT buildout, that would take us to around $900m total.
Also remember that corridors are corridors, not routes. A corridor that runs from Rainier Beach to UW doesn’t necessarily imply that Metro will run a route like that.
