See that bus back there? It’s the 16, and it goes to Wallingford by way of Aurora, but it makes a detour by the Seattle Center for no reason that anyone at Metro has ever been able to adequately explain to me.
See that traffic? This section of Mercer looks like this most days during rush hour, and it’s going to look like this, probably through 2017.
What is this bus doing on Mercer? It doesn’t have to be here. It could get on Aurora just like Route 5. How bad does it have to get before Metro acknowledges this makes no sense and fixes it?
