I have sent many emails to Metro and been met with the thanks for your input canned responses.
If Metro makes their proposed changes, I (and a lot of people I ride the bus with regularly) will have no ability to get home after 10 PM when leaving downtown Seattle.
Already, two of the three buses to my area do not intersect after downtown and are not currently served by other routes at all.
The suggestion on the metro page was the 120.
The 120 does not serve from Duwamish through South Park, the area around Highland etc.
How are we supposed to get home?
Why is there a seemingly systemic move to make Seattle city proper a Sundown city? If people who live in the South end cannot get home at night, how can we come into Seattle city proper for entertainment, sports games etc?
I have noticed that more affluent areas where, let’s face it people don’t absolutely rely on bus service to live their lives seems pretty unaffected.
How can metro say out of one side of their mouths that ridership is up and whatnot, and yet cut off an entire community?
I actually ride a lot of the routes that are on the chopping block and a good percentage of the time the bus is full enough that most seats are taken.
What are those of us who already have lost bus service nights and weekends right in our neighborhoods, supposed to do?
What are those of us who live in South Park or live in the area of First avenue south between 116th and 146th do?
It is too far to walk for most people. Especially at night.
Cabs are expensive.
Why is Metro further marginalizing people?
Is this a move to further the agenda of keeping “undesirables” (see the end of the free ride zone) off of the buses with the “better” people who don’t need to get south after 10 pm or midnight?
What are people who work in bars, restaurants, security jobs supposed to do?
Second shifts that end past midnight?
I am appalled and very angry.
If metro makes this change, this will likely force my partner and I into moving because I cannot afford to take cabs home every night (30$+ per ride), there is no direct access at night from the Tukwila station anywhere near my house.
This could impact my life in a hugely negative way. Push my partner and I further into poverty.
So again, Metro’s statement from their customer service page:
“Service, above all else” describes how Metro works to assist customers before, during and after their ride.
seem to only apply if you live in a good neighborhood.
Let me also say this. If you are thinking about moving to the Seattle area and don’t or can’t drive this is something to consider.
Public transportation in King County is a joke.
I would like to see the people who proposed these quotes walk from the 124 line up into Southpark at 11 at night. Try walking from the Tukwila station back into Burien.
Try to get home after midnight without the 120.
Do these things after working all day at a job that is probably not as nice as the one they have now, walk with hurting feet, carrying groceries, in the pitch black dark. Be a woman alone.
I think that hip-hop can be at times resistant to change and when you see two white dudes from Seattle, Washington, rapping about gay marriage, it’s like, ‘Hold up, this isn’t hip-hop,’ when in actuality it is.

Actor Richard Dreyfuss, who starred in “Close Encounters,” remembers sitting at a restaurant with director George Lucas, who glumly said he’d “made a kid’s film. And, he had wanted to make an adult film … And we commiserated with the billionaire-to-be.”
