The following is from an online petition to the city council:
Sign the Petition: Don't let 2016 be the year transit was allowed on the Trail!
The petition is at www.change.org, then search Kirkland Corridor
Or visit http://chn.ge/1mjDFgD
Tell The Kirkland City Council to vote to recommend against Sound Transit's proposals for transportation development on the Cross Kirkland Corridor. Instead, the buses on 405 solution does a much better job of reducing congestion for a lot less cost:
- Buses on 405 will cost 40% less to build per rider than the Trail
- Buses on 405 will cost 38% less to run per rider than the Trail
- Buses on 405 will move riders 22% faster than the Trail.
- Buses on 405 will support 27% more riders than the Trail.
And Buses on 405 will preserve the Trail for generations to enjoy!
