Speaking of trolleys…

You’ve probably heard that there’s talk of replacing Metro’s trolley fleet with diesel-electric hybrids. If you have an opinion about this issue (I do!*), take SDOT’s survey.

For background, check out this trolley fact sheet.

*While I’m not a fan of all trolley routes, I definitely appreciate the quiet, exhaust-free vehicles. I say, keep the trolleys!

Sound off

If you have an opinion about Seattle’s transportation priorities (Is it possible that you don’t?), you are invited to attend any of a series of public discussions — hosted by the mayor, Councilmember Jan Drago, and the Seattle Department of Transportation–on the subject.

It appears that the discussions are going to focus on which highways to repair and upgrade, but I intend to attend the meeting at Garfield Community Center (tomorrow at 6:30) and raise my voice in support of a strong public transportation infrastructure. I hope to see some of you there.

If you don’t have time to attend one of the meetings, you can come back here for my report about the Garfield meeting. Also, make sure you take this survey.
