City They’ll Get You There—Eventually
posted by March 31 at 16:26 PMon
As ridership on Metro buses has grown, on-time performance has gotten worse. The result: buses are fuller—and later—than ever before.
One thing I would like to know is whether Metro looked at on-time performance on urban vs. suburban routes. This is completely anecdotal, I know, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood in the rain, waiting for a bus to Fremont or Wallingford or wherever, and watched a dozen buses bound for Kent or Auburn or Redmond fly by with almost empty cabins.
