– It refers to CenturyLink Field as Qwest Field.
– The Greyhound Bus Terminal is in the wrong location (it moved!)
– Chihuly Garden and Glass (currently the #1 thing to do in Seattle on Trip Advisor) is nowhere to be found.
– The MOHAI is missing too (#23 on Trip Advisor).
– It designates the “Ride Free Area” for buses, which no longer exists.
– It tells you where buses run and roughly how often, but gives no indicator of where these buses go.
You may think of this as nitpicking a sign (and I am!), but it may be useful to think about what is the purpose for this sign. In 2015, the only folks who really need this sign are folks that don’t have smartphones — locating the Greyhound Bus Terminal in the wrong location could be quite catastrophic for someone trying to find it to catch a bus. Likewise, telling a visitor to town that you can ride buses for free downtown could cause them an expensive ticket (if they got on the RapidRide buses, as an example).
Who does this sign belong to? I’m guessing some department of the city of Seattle? What are the goals of signs like these in 2015, and are they meeting them? And how can they be kept up to date in a fast developing city like Seattle?
