Please Support the MASS Transportation Package!

Dear Mayor Durkan and Seattle City Councilmembers,

Please support the MASS Transportation Package to make walking, rolling, biking, and using transit in Seattle safer and more accessible. The package includes long overdue policy reforms and investments in sidewalks, bus lanes, and bike paths that can and should advance rapidly in 2019.

Our City urgently needs:  

  • Faster and more reliable buses: Choke points throughout the city leave bus riders stuck in gridlock. This package calls for a robust network of bus priority corridors connecting Seattle’s neighborhoods to make public transit fast, reliable, and efficient. 
  • Convenient and comfortable bike routes: Seattle doesn't currently have safe, efficient bike routes connecting SE Seattle and SODO to the rest of the city. This package will fund and build these key connections, improve maintenance of existing bike lanes, and make significant policy upgrades.
  • Accessible and safe sidewalks and crosswalks: Our sidewalks are crumbling, our signals too often prioritize cars over everyone else, and, at the current funding rate, it will take hundreds of years to build sidewalks where they are missing. This package will enhance the sidewalk repair program, build more sidewalks along dangerous, busy streets, adopt a signals policy that puts people first, keep sidewalks clear of obstructions, and help ensure that our kids have safe routes to school.

We urgently need to connect Seattle’s diverse and vibrant neighborhoods, minimize reliance on private vehicles, create walkable and roll-able communities, and ensure safe and equitable access to transportation for all people, particularly for those who have been historically and are currently underserved. Please support the MASS Transportation Package
