Public input sought on express bus ideas for SR 522 corridor

King County Metro Transit and Sound Transit want to hear from the public about the best ways to serve north King County with express bus service.
   The two transit agencies will be hosting a series of community meetings to discuss proposals for express service along the State Route 522 corridor between Woodinville and Seattle.
   Those meetings will be held:
   Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 7-9 p.m. at Woodinville City Hall, 17301 133rd Ave. N.E., Woodinville;
   Thursday, Nov. 1, from 7-9 p.m. at the Bothell campus of the University of Washington, Building UW-2, Room 003, 18115 Campus Way N.E., Bothell;
   Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 7-9 p.m. at the Lake City Elks Lodge, 14540 Bothell Way N.E., Lake Forest Park.
   The proposal involves operating a new ST Express regional bus route along SR 522, Woodinville Way, Bothell Way and Lake City Way. The express bus would have limited stops and operate all day, seven days a week in both directions. It would begin in September 2002.
   Metro Transit is also considering adjusting service on i routes 41, 307, 308 and 372.
