As a daily rider of buses to downtown Seattle for the previous 13 years, I’m furious at Community Transit’s plan to discontinue bus service to Seattle and drive us to journey mild rail as a substitute (“Community Transit plan funnels bus services to light rail,” The Herald May 4). CT officers know that mild rail presents an extended and less-comfortable commute, with extra stops and extra folks required to face quite than sit on mild rail’s uncomfortable seats.
I take the bus as a result of it drops me off close to my workplace, is comfy to journey (and even to sleep!), and makes use of the quick carpool lane. All three are benefits not shared by mild rail. Driving on my own appears to be like like a lovely choice in contrast with mild rail. I strongly urge Community Transit to rethink its plans to discontinue categorical bus service to Seattle.
