Give Feedback on First Avenue Streetcar

Streetcar at Jackson & OccidentalIf you missed the Center City Connector Open House on October 29th, you can still learn about the options and provide feedback online. The goal of the Connector is to connect the South Lake Union and First Hill streetcars through downtown, to make it easier for more people to get north-south. SDOT has honed in on a streetcar along 1st Avenue, connecting Jackson Street to Westlake. They are now looking at operating details – this streetcar could share a lane with traffic, or run in its own lane. Each option has its trade-offs.

For more details on the options you can read about them here. To send your input, take the survey here.

Do you think the streetcar should have its own lane? Or should the streetcar be mixed in with traffic? The purpose of this survey is to get feedback on which option you prefer and why. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. Thanks for sharing your ideas! Your comments will help inform a final recommendation that staff will make to the Mayor and City Council in late 2013/early 2014.
