Meeting in Bellevue to discuss Metro Transit changes
October 26, 2010 · 9:59 AM
A meeting in Bellevue next week will discuss changes that King County Metro Transit is considering making next year to several bus routes currently serving Bellevue and Redmond.
Metro's goal is to update bus service and reduce duplication of the new RapidRide B Line that will connect the communities starting in the fall of 2011.
Metro will host an open house from 7-8:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at the North Bellevue Community Center, 4063 148th Ave. NE.
The facility is served by Metro routes 221, 233, 253, 266 and 269.
The RapidRide B Line will provide frequent, fast, and reliable service between the transit centers in downtown Bellevue and Redmond via the Crossroads and Overlake areas. Metro is looking to adjust bus routes to provide good connections with the B Line and Sound Transit Express bus routes. Potential changes could affect Metro routes: 221, 222, 225, 229, 230, 233, 240, 245, 246, 247, 249, 250, 253, 256, 261, 265, 266, 271, 272 and 926.
