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.

There will be a Sound Transit light rail open house in Ballard on February 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Leif Erikson Lodge, 2245 NW 57th. There will be an opportunity to obtain information, provide input and comment. More information is online at: The final comment date is March 5, 2018. You can also email comments to

We’re reminding everyone that it is important to attend if you have opinions on the current design.  It is based on an elevated track along 15th after crossing the Ship Canal on a lift bridge.  An elevated station  similar to what is being built at Northgate is intended for the vicinity of Market Street.  Bring those opinions.  Decisions now will influence the character of Ballard for the next century.
