That's right, those damn out-of-touch bus riders, society's oppressive elite.

This is why I avoid riding any route with fewer than two digits.

South Seattle drops the mic and walks out of the room after every show. Even when downtown.

@3 Sorry, Queen Anne, Cap Hill, and Fremont will miss you. But there's always the 358 and the 48.

They need to move the Symphony out of Benaroya Hall.

It's not only a cesspool of danger, the building itself is horrible.

There is no atrium space, the eating area is cramped and dark. The inside I think fills up with CO from either the buses or maybe from the tunnel or something.

Plus I'm really sick of mogul funded architecture from the 90s, that has decked out Seattle in the style of Early Nerd.

I blame the toll-avoiding car riders and their violent tendencies, even when they're on a bus with civilized people.

@6, spoken like a man who's never attended an event inside the fucking thing, just eaten lunch in the public area. Go to one of the free concerts inside the auditorium, you'll see what the point of the whole building is.

Oh, that's what was going on there while I was skipping work to buy comic books. I was wondering.

This is the kind of behavior one expects on the #358, but the #7 well I never.

What does Benaroya Hall have to do with it?

@12 "I've actually a subscriber"? Well, I suppose you go for the concerts and not the grammar.

What ticks me off, as a Belltown resident, is the online KING5 report, which calls 3rd & Pike/Pine "Belltown." Stop, already. That's fucking DOWNTOWN. Belltown has enough problems without geographically-challenged tee vee reporters not knowing the difference. And the online version say s3rd & "Steward" [sic], which still isn't right.

@3: You might change your mind if you took the 36 regularly.

@6: You're out of your gourd. First, Benaroya Hall is plenty roomy enough inside, unless you jam into that little hallway next to the cafe, which plenty of people seem to do before a show. Second, the place looks like a nice, modern concert hall without being one of Frank Gehry's acid flashbacks. Finally, the auditorium has excellent acoustics, which is the whole point of the thing.

It isn't even clear whether or not they were Metro passengers. Often a skirmish or drug deal will start at the bus zone and finish on any bus pulling up to the zone. As a bus driver, I have seen this all too often. In one instance, I was unloading a regular off at 3rd and Pike with the lift. My passenger had a prosthetic leg. As the lift came completely up, to where she could roll her wheelchair on, two thugs began duking it out viciously. On of them climbed the lift in an attempt to get away, the other following right behind. My passenger began beating them with her prosthetic leg to get them off the bus and away from us. She succeeded. Then she asked me "Are you alright?" That lady is my hero. We stayed at the zone until police arrived. One of the offenders was still there. He just removed his hoodie. We both pointed him out. As for the #7, it terminates at 3rd and PIke. Bus drivers kick everyone off at that point. Kind of hard to believe anyone would wait to the last stop to report they had been stabbed.
