Return reliable and frequent bus service to Arbor Heights

    1. Petition by

      Jon Grant

      Seattle, WA

There are many people living in Arbor Heights who have lost their ability to get to and from work, school, and social activities.

Off-peak there is no bus that covers the Arbor Heights loop. After 7pm M-Sat and 6pm on Sunday, Arbor Heights has no bus service at all.

Hilly terrain, low lighting and lack of side walks make reaching bus service impossible for many and dangerous for all.  

Winter is coming. There is no snow route listed for Arbor Heights and with cold, ice or snow many will be trapped.

We need to act now. 

Thank you for your support.

      I really hate how planners make great decisions with areas that don't affect their lives at all-spending all the money doing so. I can't even come home to where I get on the bus without being kicked off at Westwood 1st.

      The city stops building parking places downtown because everyone is supposed to use public transportation - and then the planners start pulling the transportation away. NOT smart at all. Why did we need all the new stops - costing a fortune. We could have done so much more with moving people without them - spending more wisely.

      My children can no longer get home from school on the bus and can go absolutely no where on their own on weekends. My son is disabled and was, up until Arbor Heights was cut off from most bus service, independent. Now, he must wait until his parents can drive him.

      I live in Arbor Heights and I am very upset that with the new routes and schedules Metro has come up with, Arbor Height residents have been left out.

      Lack of off-peak service yields the choice of walking a couple of miles or driving in town. There is a clear need beyond a restrictive definition of rush hour.

      Walking a mike to the closest bus stop in the mornings. Waiting half an hour in the rain for a 22, or walking half an hour in the rain back home right now. Not fun.
