Did someone at King County Metro get emotionally scarred on Route 5 or something? The inconsistency with this line is off the charts. KCM already cut one route (RIP 16X) that ran close to the same path, so the buses that DO show up are packed on the way to and from downtown. Now the only line that runs north-south through Fremont and Phinney Ridge has the same chances of showing up on time (or at all) as the Mariners do of attending the World Series (sorry M’s fans).
For a city that claims to prioritize sustainability and public transit over cars, it sure has a funny way of showing it. Please, King County Metro, pay your drivers the wages they deserve and provide them the protections they are begging for so this embarrassing display of public transportation can have some hope of improvement.
