LETTER | We Support The Better Option: Transit on I-405

Dear Editor,

 

Please SAVE OUR TRAIL.  We STRONGLY SUPPORT:

 

The Better Option - Bus Rapid Transit on I-405: ST3 E02 Sound Transit offered another option that puts BRT on I-405, with a bus station at NE 85th Street. This option would cost less to build and maintain, serve a larger portion of Kirkland’s taxpaying population, and provide more ridership and faster service than mass transit on the Cross Kirkland Corridor. Based on Sound Transit’s own data, BRT on I-405, per ride, Costs 40% less to build, Costs 38% less to operate, Carries 27% more riders, and Moves riders 22% faster . . . as compared to the Trail option.

 

OUR TAX DOLLARS WILL BE MORE EFFICIENTLY USED WITH MASS TRANSIT ON I-405.

 

Sincerely,

 

The Clark Family
