Turn off MSLSD and the Chicken Noodle Network. Look around at your neighbors and blame them all, and tell us how that went. They have nannies, home organics delivered, new Tesla’s, remodelings, and plenty of $$ left over to travel often. Are they then “rich” according to you? They are being taxed at uber high rates too you know. That is supposed to supplement you and make you feel better. Put a bandaid on you owie for us all.

That’s disappointing, the express routes get slower (added stop) and barely any service is added (except for one PM trip for the 17).

Also presumably metro is adding the stop in order to serve Expedia, so the routes should be getting busier, yet no service is being added? These busses are all almost always standing-room only and often have to blow past people waiting at stops because they’re full.

Not true, Ballard is better served by transit than any part of the city.

I live near downtown Ballard, it’s just a constant stream of buses. I feel sorry for the less affluent people on the southside that city hall basically just ignores.

I also live near downtown Ballard. It’s a constant stream of busses because they’re all full of people and sometimes overfull.

the service revisions include expansions to busses on the southside too, FWIW.

Equating amenities in ballard to those on the southside is ludicrous. You are probably one of these people screaming at Mike O’Brien for having a heart.

I’m delighted we will be getting so many added trips. The changes to the routes I use most may slow me down a little but for others this will make it so much more convenient, especially those who bus on the weekends.

The more government does FOR you, the more it does TO you. Some just take a bit longer to figure this dilemma out. Some never grow up. This is what control appears as. AND when it’s your auto banned and or fee’d out of existence, then what? Is turning to Uber or Lyft people’s idea of freedom? Unlike trains, bus routes are flexible and can be changed to accommodate. Welcome to change folks. A word I hear is such a good thing for us all.

Well agreed on bus routes being flexible, and change being a good thing anyway.
