Hey, they took my suggestion and connected Mailbox to real transit! I thought the parking lot shuttle they had last year was kind of silly since you had to drive almost all the way to the trailhead and then pay $5.50 round trip (per person) to use the shuttle.

The new Cougar Mountain route combined with the Issaquah Alps route opens up some options for one-way hikes across Cougar Mountain which is pretty cool. I haven't done much exploring on Cougar, but I might give it a try with the new bus route.

I noticed that as well, should offer plenty of loop/traverse routes. Super impressed by those departure/arrival times, but I guess I am just used to weekday rush hour commute times now.

Im glad to see King County taking the good strides in advertising again this year; I have seen it in multiple locations. They did a very good job of it last year, and with new services and good messaging, perhaps it will stick around. The last time, there was almost no messaging beyond the initial launch; the effort lasted only one season.
