My name is Bob Fleming, and I am very interested in seeing a greatly improved transportation system for Seattle and the surrounding region.
I have been building a web site about various modes of transportation, but transportation implies the use of some kind of vehicle. I am also interested in people getting around by walking, running, hiking, jogging, etc., and these don’t really come under the classification of transportation. Therefore I am creating a new category that I am calling “mobility”, which not only includes getting around by vehicles but by one’s own power.
There are several projects being considered for future transportation.
EASTSIDE RAIL CORRIDOR — There is a rail corridor no long needed by BNSF railroad. The corridor runs from Renton north to Snohomish, and there are various proposals to use the corridor as a bicycle and walking trail, with possible future use for a light rail line or possibly for bus rapid transit.
