    They do run on some Saturday trips (especially during "peak" hours for Saturday commuters), but yesterday's Womens March required extra capacity that prompted extra double tall service.

    Note that when you do come down to buy the card, you will need to show proof of age, such as an ID card. I'm not sure if they accept non-American ID cards, though.

    Sound Transit has not yet hired the chief experience officer, but is merely in the process of hiring one. Notably, that person will report directly to CEO Rogoff, so hopefully issues can float to the top much faster.

    [Scratch that, I thought this was a Seattle thread and you were visiting from DC. My bad.] Anyway, other than what is on the DC Metro, the Metroway in Arlington is a fun and odd little BRT system. Same goes for the interface between the X2 and H Streetcar line, which is pretty reminiscent of what happens on Broadway back in Seattle.

    The zones aren't being removed. Rather, on commuter routes that also do in-county service, the full fare will be charged no matter what section you're using; as it stand now, a passenger can request the lower fare if they're not going all the way to Downtown Seattle, requiring the driver to manually change the ORCA reader.

    I rode the Rich Passage 1 during a media tour. A few notes at the bottom of this article (including images and video): https://www.seattletransitblog.com/2017/07/08/kitsap-transit-launching-fast-ferry-service-on-july-10/

    Pretty old news. The old building at the site has already been demolished and steel framing for the new station is up. New Tacoma Amtrak station under construction by SounderBruce, on Flickr New Tacoma Amtrak station under construction by SounderBruce, on Flickr

    Just saw an out-of-service Swift DE60LFA headed southbound on I-5 near Marysville at 9:30 pm today. Anyone know what's up with that? Clandestine Swift BRT practice at Smokey Point Transit Center?

    Service proposal for the September 2017 and March 2018 service changes is out for public comment: http://www.communitytransit.org/news/service-expansion-proposal Highlights: Extensions for Routes 105, 115, 196 and 209 New Lynnwood-Boeing service on Route 107 Everett route changes for Routes 270, 271 and 280 Eliminating Route 277 in favor of Route 270/271 service to Boeing I'm especially excited for the Route 209 extension in my area, as well as the Route 105 extension that will make it easier to attend public hearings at Community Transit headquarters.
