Sign a Petition for Bus Service at Shilshole

With limited parking in the marina and on the street during busy weekends; with high school kids having to walk 1.2 miles to the nearest bus stop in the dark in winter months; and with the city’s growing congestion and expense for parking-more people would like to downsize a vehicle and/or ride a bus if they could get to where they need to go without using a car!

Here’s your chance to show Metro that there is indeed interest for bus service here at Shilshole!  Please stop by Dockside Solutions in the Marina Office building to sign a petition for bus service.
