New Community Shuttle – to replace Route 139 – to begin in Burien June 8

Beginning June 8, a new Burien community shuttle – intended to replace the discontinued Route 139 – will provide weekday service approximately every 30 minutes on a one-way clockwise loop serving Seahurst, the Burien Transit Center and Highline Medical Center, with a flexible service area in Gregory Heights.

The shuttle service will be a two-year demonstration with ongoing monitoring of operation and ridership. Ridership of the new shuttle and feedback are extremely important to ensure the shuttle serves the community in the best way possible.

The shuttle route, preferred in community polling, was announced at the Feb. 23 Burien City Council meeting. The City and King County Metro will promote the shuttle throughout the community in preparation for the beginning of service in June.

The City of Burien is seeking feedback on this idea, asking:

What do you think are the most effective ways of promoting the new Burien Community Shuttle?

    I see 4 or 5 pedestrians walking west on 152nd with bulging plastic grocery bags in their hands every afternoon. This indicates to me that there are indeed people who have to walk to and from the grocery store whether or not by choice. A shuttle would no doubt be appreciated by those who either do not have any other form of transportation or cannot drive.
