On July 19, Lake Forest Park staff met with Metro Transit Alternative Programs staff and discussed Metro Route 331.
In 2014, Metro dropped evening hours on this route, which runs between Shoreline Community College and UW Bothell. Route 331 runs on Ballinger Way and uses LFP bus stops along that route.
The route made it possible for students in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to take public transportation to get to and from the University into the evening hours.
Under direction of the King County Council, Metro has been visiting with jurisdictions where hours were lost in the service cutbacks. A process was discussed for a survey and technical group to analyze the impacts of the service loss.
The survey will be designed this summer, taken after the colleges start the fall term and reviewed for next steps by the technical group after the results are in.
Comments on the impact of the dropped runs can be sent to Neil Jensen.
