If the downtown stop was to serve Turtle Place, it would offer a ridiculously easy transfer to the Vine BRT Fourth Plain line as well as the planned Mill Plain Line.

And I like the idea for three stops in Vancouver another poster stated. The yellow line just makes sense in Vancouver proper.
Shouldn’t the letter have been sent to somebody that would actually do something?

Can you tell me who to talk to? I really am not well versed in getting involved.

Edit: well, I suppose it’s also true. I can’t lobby public officials in Washington as I don’t live there, and they need to agree on including light rail.

Edit 2: I actually messaged Inslee in support of MAX on the Columbia River Crossing. Seems nothing to stop me.
