commented on You Can Bring Your Bike on Light Rail, but Maybe Don't Bring Your Cargo Bike—For Now
This a real problem for me. As it stands I dont bring my cargo bike on the train during peak hours (that's a real dick move). I sometimes take light rail from mt baker to Beacon hill when I dont want to slog up the hill. I would like very much to rail my cargo to UW and the ride the BG to my job in Ballard (and where my kid has preschool). If I want to pull off this commute with one kid I have to buy a new single rider bike. Boo. I'm also worried there wont even be room for me to commutte with just one kid on the new bike. We need some bike cars.

The minute mart is a dump that is plagued by drug dealers and addicts all day and night. Many of the users hang out in the bushes just south of the station behind the bus stop on MLK. That is why no one goes there. Locals are looking forward to the day the building is bulldozed. My bet is it is gone within the next 18 months.
