  •  Metro and Sounder are bike friendly (2+ / 0-)

    Both Metro and Sounder busses are equipped with bike racks so you can ride to a bus stop and load your bike to ride at the far end. I worked with a person who lived in Federal Way (Pierce County) who bike commuted to downtown Seattle for 19 years using the bike/bus method. More about Sounder here.

    You can commute to the East Side now with your bike on any of the Sounder busses. I hope you've registered to vote in the Nov General Election and you plan to vote yes on Sound Transit 2.

    •  yes, and metro works too... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and I've found their schedules more amenable than sounder, thus far.  But usually, it's a car.

      ...I don't know yet.  I'm reading stuff like this, and need to do some more research.  It's still a pretty disinterested vote for me.  The most persuasive implication of this discussion, for me, is that the system will take a long time to become effective; maybe longer than I'll be around.  That's something worth supporting, a bet on a better future.  My reservations are immense but hardly unique.  So we'll go with that, for this thread :}
