County Council to vote on changes to Metro bus service

(Chance to comment at public hearing on Tuesday the 28th)

A neighbor notes: 
Even though this refers to service in the Southeast, some of these changes will have an effect on Central Area riders as well, I see at least two lines, the #8 and #48.

CD News explains the changes:
  • Route 8 increases service to every 15 minutes during peak hours, and extends further south to MLK and the new Mount Baker light rail station at McClellan and then onwards to Rainier Beach.
  • Route 48 will discontinue service to Rainier Beach (replaced by the extended 8), and instead stops at Mount Baker light rail station.  Service increases to every 15 minutes in the evenings.  However, it maintains all of its northern route to UW and Loyal Heights.
