White Center in line for more bus service during Viaduct work
That’s King County Executive Ron Sims and White Center/West Seattle-area County Councilmember Dow Constantine at a just-concluded media briefing in Sodo detailing a state-funded plan to add Metro bus service when major Alaskan Way Viaduct work starts next spring. Full details later; the White Center/Burien-area routes mentioned as “candidates for service enhancement” include 21, 22, 23, 60, 113, 120, 121, 122, 123, 125, 128, 131, 132, 134, 174. (West Seattle routes are listed in this report on partner site WSB.) ADDED 1:36 PM: Here’s the official news release from the county website. We’re working on getting electronic copies of the collateral (including a countywide map of potentially affected routes) that was handed out at the media event. ADDED 5:30 PM: Full report now posted on WSB, including video clips.

I’m bummed that this list doesn’t include the 133–an express/commuter bus to the U-District, with a trip time of about half an hour. Right now there are only four runs in the morning and in the afternoon, and the last one in the morning leaves WC too early for my schedule. The other routes to the U-District involve going downtown and transferring for a total trip time of around an hour, compared to a half hour driving… Guess I’ll be sticking it out in my car for now.
