Do you know what time the Everett Mall closes? Evidently Everett Transit doesn’t. For instance, on a Saturday, the No. 1 bus from Everett Mall to Everett Station leaves at 5:47 p.m. … and then the route shuts down.
For those wondering, the mall closes at 9 p.m. on Saturday. The buses stop running before 6 p.m. Gee, wouldn’t it be swell to be able to commute to and from work, you know, the way public transit advertises?
It’s nice to see my tax dollars at work easing congestion, but it’s pretty sad when the state adding a lane to the freeway five years too late is a better fix than our local bus system.
It’s time to get our bus system out of the hands of the city government and into those of people who know what they are doing. Let’s get Community Transit back into Everett, to ease our congestion and get people to and from work.
It may be downright unheard of for a city to listen to its people, but maybe we could try it and see what happens.
