Figure since many of you in the Seattle Transit Blog comments have some concerns about future Paine Field transit service and in particular light rail… let me give you some updates:
- Beacon Publishing is doing a survey on transportation with emphasis on the proposed Paine Field passenger terminal. Some would say supporting a commercial terminal at Paine Field means supporting light rail to Paine Field…
- Today, and I’m sure this will be covered more thoroughly on Page One, Sound Transit has a new website for ST3. One part is a survey on what projects for ST3. If you have an agenda you want to accomplish or help accomplish*… vote and ditto at the upcoming meetings where other local transit agencies will also participate such as the 18 June meeting at Everett Station which I will attend.
- The Everett Herald kindly posted an update on conversations the Future of Flight and Community Transit are having about weekend transit service to Future of Flight as an initial hydration to the transit desert. As I said to the Everett Herald, “The Future of Flight deserves a fair slice of service and this is a significant step in that direction.” I don’t think light rail is that “fair slice of service” any longer but feel the Future of Flight, the #1 tourism destination for Snohomish County with 777.8 daily visitors – many of which international who rely on mass transit back home – needs a “fair slice of service”. Another option I am now proposing is for that “fair slice of service” being an express bus route from Seaway Transit Center at the east end of the Boeing Paine Field campus to Future of Flight and then Community Transit Route 113…
There you go.
^Yes, I write long photo titles :-). I also wanted an aerial photo that showed more than the Future of Flight. Below Historic Flight Foundation/HFF will be a major park & ride in a few years.
*Help accomplish like light rail to Ballard, I just expect support for more, better bus service to all Paine Field tenants in return from you commentors.
