Metro to increase bus stop spacing for Route 14

Metro is planning to reduce the number of closely spaced bus stops on the Route 14 corridor. This change will help buses move faster and operate on a more reliable schedule, reduce energy consumption and emissions, and reduce Metro’s operating and maintenance costs.

Currently, the corridor has 73 bus stops north, south, and east of downtown Seattle, with an average stop spacing of about 675 feet. Metro will remove 20 of these stops, increasing the average spacing between stops to about 950 feet.

As a result of this change, approximately 19 percent of Route 14 riders who board outside downtown Seattle will have to catch their bus at a different stop. When the project is completed, all riders should have a faster, more reliable trip.

The following stops are scheduled for closure on September 4, 2010:
