Seattle Times letters to the editor

Metro bus No. 25

A commuter’s cameo

I was delighted to see Michael Upchurch’s “review” of Metro’s No. 25 bus in Wednesday’s Seattle Times, and pleased to see my name mentioned as offering a “cameo appearance” [“I laughed, I cried, I rode: Bus No. 25 is a riveting slice of Seattle,” NW Wednesday, April 1].

However, I must point out the error the writer made in using that descriptor. As a former dancer, and one who has a nine-year run of weekday performances on the No. 25 from Portage Bay to downtown and return, my correct title is “Principal Commuter.”

Next stop: Italy

Actually, the Metro bus No. 25 used to stretch all the way to a small restaurant in Orvieto, Italy. Or it did in 1984.

That’s where my wife and I were when a young man at the next table looked at me and said, “Didn’t you used to ride the No. 25 bus in Seattle?” I had been a regular rider during the 1970s.

From the article I’m assuming the No. 25 no longer serves Orvieto.

— Dan Kraus, Seattle
