Greenwood Transit

  1. 1. Greenwood:   Transit  at  a  Crossroads    A  minor  change  to  the  proposed  service  change  would  make  a  night-­‐and-­‐day  difference  to  transit   service  in  our  neighborhood  
  2. 2. Greenwood  is  one  of  11  designated  urban  villages  north  of  the  Ship  Canal  in  Sea<le’s  Comprehensive  Plan   Accordingly,  we  have   welcomed  significant  growth   over  the  past  two  decades  
  3. 3. We  lack  direct  connecFons  to  key  nearby  desFnaFons.  Under  Metro’s  proposal,  we  would  lose  yet  another.  Metro’s  proposal  would  eliminate  current  Route  5  connecFon  to  Northgate  and  North  Sea<le  Community  College  •  Important  to  teenagers,     seniors,  students,  and     connecFon  to  regional  transit    We  have  no  direct  service  now  to  Ballard  or  Fremont  
  4. 4. Transfers  to  Northgate  at  Greenwood  and  105th  would  be  unpleasant  and  inconvenient  Transfers  can  work  for    commute  trips  with  convenient  connecFons,  frequent  and  reliable  service  –  BUT,  –      They  are  a  major  disincenFve  to  transit  use  to  local  desFnaFons  for  everyday  non-­‐work  trips.    
  5. 5. ONE  SMALL  ROUTING  CHANGE  would  make  a  night  and  day  difference  to  transit  service  in  Greenwood  Proposed  change  would  run  Route  18  on  N  85th  instead  of  Holman  Rd  between  15th  NW  and  Greenwood  Ave  N    •  Provides  be<er  Northgate     connecFon  •  Provides  long-­‐desired  direct   connecFon  to  Ballard  and  Fremont    
  6. 6. Analysis:        -­‐  Meets  Metro’s  objecFves        -­‐  No  loss  of  service  on  Holman  Rd  Meet’s  Metro’s  objecFves:   No  negaFve  impacts:  •  Consolidates  and  strengthens   •  Holman  Rd.  would  have   Route  5  north  of  Holman  Rd.     RapidRide  service  on   affected  segment  •  MiFgates  loss  of  unproducFve   Route  28  tail   •  No  lost  coverage  on  either   Holman  Rd.  or  N  105th  St.  •  Eliminates  confusion  by   having  two  tails  on  route  5   •  Negligible  difference  in   travel  Fme  or  operaFng  •  Northgate  tail  has  been  weak   cost   due  to  part  Fme  operaFons  –   this  is  fixed  
  7. 7. Summary  •  Please  consider  running  Route  18  on     N  85th  St.  between  15th  Ave.  NW  and   Greenwood  Ave.  N  •  If  not,  Please  don’t  sever  our   connecFon  to  Northgate,  as  imperfect   as  it  is
