There was standing room only at the Seaview Ave. Bus Service meeting March 22. Residents of the Sunset West Condos and Shilshole Bay marina tenants were present. District Four Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles led the meeting, which included Katie Chalmers and Carol Cooper from King County Metro. Supervisor of Service Planning, Katie Chalmers, explained that the priorities of Metro are to add service to overcrowded bus lines, add buses to routes that don’t currently have timely service and finally to extending service to areas such as Seaview Ave. Metro looks at land use, the productivity of the area and socio economic considerations. Metro’s long term vision is to provide transportation services throughout King County. Supervisor of Market Development, Carol Cooper, explained the Community Connections program. Currently a pilot program, Community Connections’ goal is to understand and identify transportation needs and gaps. In order to pursue Community Connections services, our area will need to gather data. To that end, Jeanne Kohl-Welles’ office is willing to assist in creating a survey in order to gather data. When asked about a timeline, Carol Cooper stated that the best case scenario would be 9 months before some kind of service would be implemented on Seaview Ave. I want to thank everyone who signed the petition in support of bus service and to all those who attended the meeting.


Sylvia Vikingstad, John Mitchell and Anita Lewis from Sunset West Condos have asked that anyone interested in being on a bus service committee contact Sylvia at The first meeting of this committee is scheduled for Thursday, April 5 at 1 pm in the Sunset West Condo party room. I would love to see fellow boaters at this meeting. I believe there is widespread support for extending bus service so that we can more easily access public transportation. The timeline may seem daunting but we need to start the process in order to achieve our goals.
