Your poem, on a bus
Calling all bus poets! Poetry on buses is back. This year's theme is "writing home." You can find submission guidelines here.
Bus cuts are coming
Thanks to the failure of our state legislature--and the subsequent failure of Prop 1 (aka, "plan B"), King County will lose 72 bus routes and see reduced service on over 100 more. There is a chance a plan will be cobbled together to save some service, but it will be even less ideal than the less-than-ideal plan that just failed.

Heartbeat of Struggle: The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama, by Diane Fujino

Last week, Sound Transit released its new 15-year plan. The ST board is expected to decide whether to put it on the November ballot by July 24th.
As you might have noticed, I’d much rather write about what’s happening on buses and (Lord willing!) trains than the nuts and bolts of transit planning. Fortunately, the folks at Seattle Transit Blog are doing an excellent job of covering this. They have all the detail, discussion, and analysis a transit geek (or concerned citizen) could ask for.
If you missed out on Sound Transit’s system expansion open houses this spring, you can still provide feedback on the agency’s proposal–which will be on the ballot this fall. (As if you didn’t have enough reasons to look forward to November.) All of the materials, including the questionnaire, are available on this page of Sound Transit’s site.
