-I do not like the proposed spacing of stations and stops
-No opinion

9. Two alternative RapidRide routes are being considered in the Overlake area between NE 24th Street and NE 31st Street. One option is to have RapidRide continue along 156th Avenue NE; the other is to have the route jog to the west and travel along 152nd Avenue NE. Please see the brochure and map for more information. Which of these two options do you prefer?

-RapidRide goes along 156th NE between NE 24th and 31st streets
-RapidRide goes along 152nd NE between NE 24th and 31st streets
-No preference
