eliminate deep bore tunnel- create a boulevard along the waterfr

drop the idea of a deep bore tunnel (with a toll both ways and no access to city streets) take down the viaduct and build a beautiful 6 lane boulevard along the waterfront. Be done faster and at half (if not less) than the tunnel costs (not counting overrides and accidental deaths while building)...

Transportation money saving suggestion

Do as Bellevue has done: defer new bike lanes and new sidewalks for at least two years. Also defer/stop road diets. For many of us who are elderly, bicycles are not a option

License bicyclists- ensure they know traffic laws AND bring revenue

Bike riders are not licensed yet operate on a road in a manner which requires knowledge of traffic laws. It is reasonable to assume that some bikers have never taken a driving test and have no drivers license. How can we expect them to obey rules they may or may not even know?

No More Free-Ride Zone Downtown

Get rid of the downtown ride free zone. Doing so would clean up buses downtown and reduce fare evasion that causes annual fare collection losses estimated at "...$3.2 million per year from non-paying riders...".

I have seen so many cyclist break the law when riding their bikes and not sharing the road that ...more »

Stop bike Projects

Remove the $13 Million set aside by McGinn for bike lanes from the budget. When we have excess money we can think about increasing transit lanes for less than 1% of the commuting population. Until then stop ALL the bike projects!!

Paying for Sidewalks

97% of sidewalks have been paid for by landowners in Seattle. It's in the SMC. Let's get back to that system. Same for sewers.

Put Someone in Charge of the Rights of Way

Put someone in charge of the rights of way. The agencies don't work well together and that causes a lot of inefficiencies especially between SPU and SDOT.
