Shoreline seeks input on future of transportation

The city of Shoreline is looking for public input on the future of transportation in Shoreline.

The city posted a survey titled “Shoreline's Transportation Future: Walk Ride Roll!” which seeks input on car-free and electric transportation in Shoreline.

A map from the survey shows possible locations of shared use mobility hubs being considered by the city of Shoreline

The survey includes information on the city’s plan to pilot scooter and bike share programs this summer and also includes concepts for public spaces that support car-free and electric transportation called “Shared-Use Mobility Hubs”. It also asks for input on electric vehicle charging and car sharing.

The survey comes ahead of a Monday April 15, 2024 public hearing on the city’s Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). The city updates this plan each year and serves as the six-year roadmap for what transportation projects Shoreline will fund (and not fund).

Always nice to have more options for getting around.

I don't think most people move to Shoreline so they can get on a bus or any kind of public transportation. If they wanted that they could move to Seattle. Right now the park and rides are half empty.

It's hard enough as a visually-impaired pedestrian in Shoreline to safely get from Point A to Point B. For that matter, for any pedestrian it is challenging. Adding bikes and scooters for rent into the mix means more obstacles on the sidewalk.

Should make for a great playground of toys for our urban campers.

Not everyone has money to live in Seattle. The busses I take in Shoreline are always packed.

In other neighborhood communities where bike riding increased, bikers became a hazard to walkers as the bikers would ride back and forth onto sidewalks to avoid traffic in the streets. As a pedestrian, I'm okay sharing with bikers if they are required to become pedestrians and walk their bikes while on the sidewalks. If a standard to protect walkers' safety isn't set and enforced. much of the improved walk-ability would likely be co-opted.
