Uniformity so our everyday activities are same in all locations, businesses, homes, malls, large public gatherings. Provide easier recycling locations/stations for Styrofoam and other products. I want to recycle but why should I have to drive everywhere to several different location for different products.

Metro staff members will see your responses. If you register, your responses will be shared with others, and if you do not register they will only be shared with the H Line project team.

Do you plan to use the H Line when it begins service in 2020?
Most Likely. I would like to tell the project team to focus their improvements on what matters to customers. Seattle has to stop their war on drivers and start understanding the needs of the people. If there is no transit route provided close to my home & you do not enhance bus service on the side streets, people are forced into their cars to park and then ride bus. You cannot continue to add more bike lanes (for what I can tell is usually used by VERY FEW bikers) and just take away all side street parking for cars. You do not have the intelligence to consider how to improve how the bus rider can get to the bus route, you just take away more lanes of traffic & create more ridiculous backup in traffic by not allowing enough lanes for traffic or not allowing parking spots for those that do not have the convenience of being close to a bus stop. Major priorities should be (i) buses arriving on time (ii) convenient bus stops for most people to get on the bus (iii) bus shelters to protect against weather (iv) park & rides for those people not living close to a bus stop. Stop concentrating on the items that are not the items that make a person decide if they ride the bus or not. People want on-time buses that run every 10 minutes and want the convenience of bus close by their home or park & rides to catch a bus. If you don't provide this, people will drive more to work.


What things about bus service is important to you? (click as many as you like)
How long it takes to get to my destination, How often the bus comes throughout the day, How often the bus shows up on time, When the bus does and does not run, The number of transfers I have to make to complete my trip, Onboard comfort - seating, cleanliness, climate control, safety


What’s important to you? (check as many as you like)
Access to transit improvements that make it safer and easier getting to and waiting for the bus, RapidRide bus station locations that are not spaced to far apart but help keep my travel time fast and reliable


Would the route alternatives in Burien or White Center affect your business, home, destination, or neighborhood?
Yes


If yes, how?
Something is wrong with your map. I clicked on the map to see what was Option 1 and what was Option 2 but it came up blank and did not show Option 1 or Option 2. I would pick the option that provided convenient & frequent bus stops and the one that has the option to park and ride. DO NOT take out the street parking to give to bikes because there are hardly ever any bikes that ride in those lanes so it's a waste to build bike lanes!


Is your bus stop proposed to move when the H Line begins service?
N/A or not sure


What intersection is closest to the bus stop you would likely use the most when riding the H Line?
Delridge Way SW and Brandon Street


What would make it easier for you to use that stop or get to or from it?
A Bus that goes on the side streets to pick me up closer to my home and Parking on the streets near the bus stop


Do you ever change your bus stop because of safety concerns or other conditions at the stop?
No


How easy will it be for you to get to the proposed new H Line stops? 
Somewhat difficult


If chose "somewhat difficult" or "very difficult" above, please tell us why?
Well #1, I cannot see the Option 1 or the Option 2 because there is something wrong with your survey page, but I am guessing that those options take out more lanes of traffic and spaces for parking because that seems to be the intent of Seattle for it to wage a war and make it harder and harder for people to drive their cars or park anywhere. You want to give all these convenience to bikers but get a reality check, the majority of people don't bike to work and Seattle is not a European village type of city where those people do get around on bikes and walk because there is more convenience to do so. People have to travel to work farther distances and here in Seattle, they want to get to work conveniently and the quickest way possible.

Pin at 47.560567, -122.342677, Pin on 3rd Ave and Seneca St (Towards Burien TC) (I need to go as close to 5th Avenue and Columbia to work)


If you were unable to or chose not to use the map, please comment here.
I only take the bus to work. If I go shopping, I need to have my car to put all the shopping bags in. It's too hard to carry everything to and from a bus especially when someone has joint difficulties.


How do you usually get to the bus?
Drive and park


How long does it usually take you to get to the bus?
6-10 minutes


Which improvements along the route would make it easier or safer for you to get to the H Line? (Select all that apply)
More time to cross streets, Add or improve pedestrian signals


Tell us more about the improvements you would like along Route 120 (location, issue, how to improve):
Provide more access to a park & ride. Have buses drive along some side streets because it is hard to walk 25 minutes to a bus stop, get on the bus, get to downtown destination, get off bus, and then have to walk another 20 minutes to get to work. With no bus option near to my home, I drive to the closest spot that I can get on a bus. If the bus is late, then I have to drive to work.


What else would make it easier for you to use the H Line?
- Park and ride
- Convenient bus routes that I don't have to walk for 25 minutes to get to.
- On-time arrivals and on-time departures. Sick of three #120's coming one right after another.



Tell us more about the improvements you would like (location, issue, how to improve):
There needs to be a side street bus that runs down Juneau Street in West Seattle as that would make it easier to get to the #120 on Delridge.


Are there things that make getting to this route hard for children, youths, seniors, or people with disabilities?
Yes, if someone has difficulty walking to where the #120 bus stop is, and if you take away all the street parking, this makes it difficult for children, seniors and people with disabilities. They have to most likely ride in a car to wherever the bus stop is because they have walking limitations.


What time of day do you most often use the bus?
6:01 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.


Which describes you best?

Current rider of Route 120


How satisfied are you with Route 120 today?

Pin on 15th Ave SW and SW 104th St (Towards Burien TC) (Stay off 15th AVe SW. it’s a slow street with several 4-way stops and a long light tab SW Roxbury St. )


If you were unable to or chose not to use the map, please comment here.
Stay off 15th. It’s too slow, has several 4-way stops, and doesn’t offer any advantage for transfers. Travel from 16th and SW and SW 107th St to 17th and Roxbury via 16th Ave SW, White Center Cutoff SW, and 17th Ave SW. Keep the bus moving!

Tell us more about the improvements you would like along Route 120 (location, issue, how to improve):
Move the bus off 15th Ave SW - I t’s too slow, has several 4-way stops, and doesn’t offer any advantage for transfers. Travel northbound from 16th and SW and SW 107th St to 17th and Roxbury via 16th Ave SW, White Center Cutoff SW, and 17th Ave SW. Use 17th and 16th southbound, too. Keep the bus moving!

Also, the crosswalk at Delridge Way SW and Croft Pl SW needs to be restriped - it’s faded and cars don’t stop - even when people have crossed half-way across the street and are in the center island.

Metro staff members will see your responses. If you register, your responses will be shared with others, and if you do not register they will only be shared with the H Line project team.

Do you plan to use the H Line when it begins service in 2020?
Yes, but prefer 125 (125 is a newer bus, the a/c works consistently, it's cleaner, is less busy so I can find a seat, and stops closer to my house, has more stops yet is faster than the 120. The downside it's less frequent)

Which Burien route alternative do you prefer?
Option 2 (on the right)


Which White Center route alternative do you prefer?
Option 2 (on the right)


Would the route alternatives in Burien or White Center affect your business, home, destination, or neighborhood?
Yes


If yes, how?
White Center - Option 2 Preferred - Removing the buses from the busiest areas of Roxbury would be helpful to traffic flow. The 120/H is a double length bus and the lengths of road between intersections are short and cramming long buses makes the intersections function sub-optimally. This does mean that bus stops are farther away from the south east corner of the urban village which is bad however you don't seem to be trying to serve that population. If you chose option 2, then I have to ask why are you routing off of 16th at all? You would be losing the benefit of a gradual left/right turn protected by a traffic light at 100th and 16th, and adding a bunch of 90deg left/right turns as well as a bunch of stop signs. Is this all to make stops one block closer to the community center? The western side of 16th has more residential so I hope you'll re-evaluate.
Burien - Option 2 Preferred - Option 2 moves the stops closer to the business district which means I'm more likely to use the 120/H line if its fast.


Is your bus stop proposed to move when the H Line begins service?
Yes


What intersection is closest to the bus stop you would likely use the most when riding the H Line?
Henderson and Delridge


What would make it easier for you to use that stop or get to or from it?
Move stop closer, ADA Compliant Sidewalks, and maintain sidewalks


Do you ever change your bus stop because of safety concerns or other conditions at the stop?
Not sure


How easy will it be for you to get to the proposed new H Line stops? 
Neutral

Tell us more about the improvements you would like along Route 120 (location, issue, how to improve):
Curb ramps on Henderson, It looks like you have a plan for the triangle at henderson and delridge, when I'm heading north with a bicycle or walking crossing the exit lane towards westwood village is dangerous. Drivers treat the road like an exit ramp with a large amount of time to slow down rather than an intersection. There are really a number of issues with this intersection, so I hope the team will spend some serious time improving it.

The crossings at Delridge and Andover is dangerous due to its prioritization of cars only. The wait time for the pedestrian cross walk is extensively long, I regularly miss the bus waiting at this crossing, which encourages dangerous behavior. Bikes regularly cross the road illegally and pedestrians are encouraged to j-walk. Ragey cars taking free right turns disregarding crossing pedestrians who have walk signals. One of the worst intersections on my commute as a bike.


Tell us more about the improvements you would like (location, issue, how to improve):
During construction for something 25th and Barton had an all way stop sign. It seemed to make things work better at that intersection.

Ada compliant curb ramps are missing, sometimes even sidewalks don't exist. The hills and distance are a problem for seniors and people with disabilities. The previous mayor did not walk to the bus stop on a find it fix it walk because the incline was too much.
