Frank and Martin talk about Ulink opening for a bit, then shift to the ST3 draft plan. We take a detour through the sustainability of the suburban model and speculate about a low-carbon future. Finally, the Washington caucuses.
Martin and I discuss Kevin Desmond’s new gig at TransLink, the firing of Lynn Peterson at WSDOT, and whether it’s possible to put more buses on the freeways. Oh, and then I encourage all the kids to get off my lawn.
[UPDATE: The livestream technology didn’t work out for us. You’ll hear the podcast in the morning. Sorry.]
Martin and I are going to try to do a live audio broadcast of the election results tonight, starting around 8:15pm PST. Watch this space for details on how to listen. If the live stream doesn’t work for whatever reason, we’ll make it available as a podcast tomorrow morning.

Martin and I talk election results and Martin does an amazing job of picking the winners and the spreads. Bring him next time you’re going to Vegas. Seriously. We also discuss a Graham Street Link station and a Grand Bargain for Mercer Island.
With the proposed U-link restructures headed for council this week, I recorded a podcast with Zach and David to talk about the restructure, the history, and what will change when U-link opens next year. We tried to give a good overview of the changes, some of the challenges (both technical and political) and the potential benefits for riders. David’s frequent network proposal also makes a brief appearance. Enjoy!
