Seattle Times letters to the editor

October 21, 2008 at 3:49 PM

Initiative 985

Think of something else

Here’s a simple suggestion to address Puget Sound traffic congestion: Buses — lots of them — 1,000 buses if that’s what it takes [“I-985: Tim Eyman puts the meddle to the pedal,” editorial columnist, Oct. 19].

Make sure a bus runs down every major street in the area at least twice an hour. Make sure buses run between every city and employment center at least several times an hour.

This would reduce our carbon footprint and relieve congestion.

No yearlong study required.

No billion dollar, multi-year construction project necessary.

Sound too simplistic? Maybe it is, but it’s a start and it’s something I could actually vote for.

— Valerie O’Halloran, Renton
