Proposed Bus Cuts Eliminate Direct Service Downtown

Direct bus service from Victory Heights to downtown would be eliminated unless the Washington State legislature restores funding, King County Metro Transit says. If proposed service cuts go through, Route 72 would be eliminated completely and Route 73 would be moved west to Roosevelt Way NE. To get downtown, Victory Heights residents would either have to walk over to Roosevelt, or catch a 372 on Lake City Way and then transfer to another bus in the University District. During rush hour, express service downtown would be available by walking to either NE 110th Street or NE 95th Street and Lake City Way.
You can learn more about why service must be cut and how you may be affected at a public meeting at North Seattle Community College this week. Metro Transit also is inviting you to help them understand the affects these cuts will have on you.
