LETTER | Bus Rapid Transit Does Not Belong on the Cross Kirkland Corridor

Dear Editor,

I do not support bus rapid transit on the Cross Kirkland Corridor (CKC). 

There are many safety concerns with buses on the CKC:
It is near many parks and schools
It’s used by many school kids
It connects neighborhoods and has a lot of pedestrian cross traffic

I will oppose and work hard to defeat ST3 at the polls if it includes Sound Transit bus rapid transit on the CKC.

I do understand that Sound Transit has an easement on the CKC, and that transit has always been part of long range plans for the corridor. Maybe someday we will need to use the corridor for intermittently elevated light rail, but I believe that time is a long way out. 

Sincerely,


David Kiesel
