Hi everyone, As a longtime Seattle-area resident, I've never been super pleased with the transit system - it just takes forever to get places, and sometimes I just wonder if walking would be faster. Unfortunately, the future doesn't look bright from what I can see - ST3 seems to be sending trains all over the place except where they should be going, and for some reason plans on adding another BRT system just to add a little more complexity and confusion. So, because of this I've created my own system, which, while it does have some issues and is far from perfect, I would view as an improvement over ST3. I've been working on this project since about the beginning of the year, alongside a few expansions of it, which are described a bit more at the bottom of this post. This first map is what the network would look like with Link trains and BRT. Below that is what the Link would look like on its own. Hope it isn't too confusing I would absolutely love to hear any and all feedback on it - I know it's not perfect so I want to know what you guys would change, as well as aspects you like and don't like about the system. Note about the stops: I've included + labeled all Link stations on the map, however not all BRT stops are marked, just a few important ones to help make better sense of the geography of the network. https://metromapmaker.com/?map=-hRXn1wp https://metromapmaker.com/?map=ZKblkPPh If you guys want more from this - I have Google maps of both maps above, as well as a map of a total system that includes local buses (and is still in progress, but does have a lot of major components done). Additionally, if anyone wants more information on frequency, I have a spreadsheet that I can attach which has information on the frequency of all the lines / routes. Anyway, enough from me - let me know what you think.
http://www.cptdb.ca/...=Pierce_Transit In the all-time roster, among the retired units, this table fails to mention units 111-143. These were 1980 Grumman Flxible 870 model 45096-8-1s, in this case they have as the powertrain a Cummins VTB903 engine and Allison V730 transmission. They were the first new buses when Pierce Transit assumed its present name in 1979. Like all pre-1981 870s, did Pierce have these units' A-frames fixed by Grumman? ~Ben
