Mercer Island Transit Interchange

The Mercer Island Transit Interchange is the integration of bus transit service from the Eastside with East Link light rail. When East Link opens for service in 2023, many existing bus routes from the Eastside to Seattle will terminate at Mercer Island Station, where passengers will transfer to/from light rail.

The Sound Transit Settlement Agreement is a legal document that requires Metro’s concurrence for implementation of the 77th Avenue SE Configuration. The refinements to Section 4 Bus/Rail Integration achieve the primary goals of the Agreement while providing operational adjustments as required by Metro to meet their operational needs.

The "optimal configuration" for buses on MI has no benefit for our city. Sound Transit has only its own best interests at heart - they aren't looking out for ours. We've already given away much too much in negotiations with ST, getting pitifully little in return. Restricting the bus intercept to the option that has the smallest impact on the island is essential. Please stand up for what's best for your constituents and neighbors, not for the region, ST or Metro. Our "regional partners" are looking out for themselves, and we must do the same.

From giving away Islander SOV access to the I-90 HOV lanes to colluding with Sound Transit and Metro to choke our community with bus traffic and diesel fumes, to conspiring to increase MI population density via short platting and using funds derived from selling building permits to fund the expansion of city government, from burning hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on "consultants" and providing support for pet-projects like MICA to then punishing the community for not supporting last November's tax increase proposition by cutting the summer celebration (but keeping the consultant spending, "lime bikes", and financial support for MICA), ..MI city government NEVER fails to underscore it's contempt for the citizens of this community. The only thing our current city government is good at is colluding with Seattle, King County and Washington state liberals (including those at Sound Transit and Metro) against the interests of MI citizens. It has not gone unnoticed.
