MLTnews reader Chris points out that the recent Community Transit cuts are making transportation difficult for some Mountlake Terrace residents:
I wanted to add this for my fellow MLT’ers. I wonder if anyone uses the commuter service to Seattle, either downtown or the UW? Well Community Transit is making some SERIOUS transit cuts which will leave our community significantly disadvantaged from before. The 408 & 477 will be reduced to only run from the park and ride, leaving all people that pick the busses up all over MLT out of luck. Also the 414 will be completely eliminated which was a bus that provided commuter service through MLT to seattle before and after rush hour. Also all Sunday service throughout the county will be cancelled completely.
There is a meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 – 58th Avenue W, Mountlake Terrace for those interested in attending.
Also here is a link to the full list of cuts which really hit all corners of Snohomish County.
The Seattle Transit Blog has a good run down of all the changes that are being made.
See the video below of Community Transit CEO explaining the reasons for the cuts and raising fares:
