My husband once worked on the Eastside of Lake Washington at a design firm near Microsoft before he started law school. He would ride his bike across town to the last Seattle bus stop before the 520 floating bridge, stow the bike on the front of the bus for the trip across the lake, then get off at the first stop on the other side and complete the bike ride into Redmond. I understand a bike and pedestrian lane is planned for the new 520 bridge slated to start construction next year. I took this shot of bikes on board a bus in the Ravenna neighborhood. Metro Transit is wise to offer bike racks on its buses. They are so well-utilized that sometimes the rack is full and you have to wait for the next bus. The Elliott Bay Water Taxis to West Seattle also take bikes on board.
