Metro Transit is working with the City of Burien on an alternative service to replace the parts of Bus Route 139 â€“which was cut last September (read our previous coverage here) â€“ that were used the most. This routeÂ was one of several Metro cutÂ because of insufficient funding and low ridership. Metro and the cityÂ are now working together on an alternative service to replace the parts of Route 139 that were used the most. “Weâ€™re considering two possible routes for the shuttle,” reads an announcement. “Both would serve Seahurst, downtown Burien and the Burien Transit Center, Highline Medical Center, and Gregory Heights. Both would use a combination of scheduled service along a marked route plus a flexible service area where riders can call in advance to request a pickup. There are differences in travel times, how often the shuttle would run, and how service would operate in Gregory Heights.” Learn more about what’s being considered by clicking here.
