Metro Bus Service to Denny Blaine May Change

Metro BusMetro is considering changing a bunch of bus routes including the #2 which services Denny Blaine.  The suggested change is to have the #2 still travel to Denny Blaine, but it would only go to Downtown Seattle and back.  No longer would the service head to Queen Anne or Belltown before heading back to Denny Blaine.  The main problem I see is the #2 used to access all of Downtown Seattle; the proposed bus line would only go as far north as Madison before heading back to Denny Blaine, giving little access to the rest of Downtown.

If you are concerned, you should take the Metro survey.  The changes are planned for September 2012, but the wheels (on the bus) are already turning so you better speak now.
