This project is way to big to be on schedule and on budget. If it goes ahead we will be paying way more than projected for something we can't use in our lifetime.

Car tab tax is way too much. It is not fair. My family does not ever plan to use the sound transit, but we still have to pay much higher taxes on our car tabs. Even the construction for making the sound transit railways is causing congestion, traffic and unnecessary stress.

This will no doubt require the cutting down of trees and a disruption of nature and the natural habitats of animals and also affect the environment adding to the chnage in climate.

Buses on 405 (E-02) seems like the best idea, but only a stop-gap measure. If you were already considering rail on the trail option, why not go the distance & install rail service on 405? I don't know what your population growth rate, commuter increase, or fraying of America rate (elderly drives likely to give up driving in favor of commuting) rates are, but if they're anything like where I live, I would welcome high speed rail thankfully. The problem in San Antonio that it has never passed is the proposed route that favors serving higher socio-economic populations instead of the very populations that need it - lower-middle & low class segments who REALLY would rely on high speed rail & commuters (especially students) who would rely on it if given the I-35 > I-35 downtown > I-10 South & the I-35 > 410 South > 1604 South routes that have never been proposed, thus failing at the polls every time. The routes above are the main corridor from San Antonio to Austin favoring the lower & middle economic commuters & would deliver students to so many colleges/universities of higher education, as well as free up congestion on the I-35 corridor that was originally for long-haul truck traffic. That mixed with commuter traffic that wasn't planned for in the (0s-60s has caused an unseasonable amount of congestion & an hour long commute is now a 3 hour commute. I hope your buses on 405 (E-02) will free your commuters from a similar or potentially similar nightmare. Please consider high speed rail eventually on 405 so that the nature trails are never given a second consideration down the road. Houston faced a similar situation regarding I-10(St. Hy. 90) problem & used 3 lanes (or more) for bus traffic on the expressway entering Houston while building high speed rail & continuing to widen the expressways (including the building of a highly controversial toll expressway) & though the projects took nearly 15 years in its entirety, the finished systems are wonderful & though confusing somewhat for travelers heading East to Beaumont or New Orleans to stay on the right segment of road, for the native Hiustonian it's been a blessing.
Good luck to you in your buses on 405 (E-02) route proposition.

Save our wildscapes & wildlife for generations to come. Man has intruded & destructed too much of our wild lands across our Nation as is.

CKC is partly why I choose Kirkland as my home. It is a wonderful urban escape. Still relatively unknown, this safe, lightly trafficked stretch is ideal for family exercise and finding a peaceful escape amidst an urban jungle. CKC is a gift that we should preserve for future generations.—A. Newby

WE need to preserve our green spaces and keep all traffic in highway corridors.

... because this is where I live. Cities are not corporations, they are supposed to be breathable. That's why I live in (still generally) beautiful Kirkland and not (irreversibly corrupt) corporate Bellevue.
