A march across the Magnolia bridge in support of better transit funding is scheduled for late Saturday, according to event organizers.
The event, organized by the Transit Riders Union, begins at 11 p.m. near Staples, at the east end of the bridge, and ends at the Magnolia Village Pub, 3221 W. McGraw St.
Magnolia was chosen because of a schedule change last fall, when King County Metro Transit dropped service after 9:30 p.m. from downtown to Magnolia, then restored a 10:20 p.m. trip after riders objected.
“It is the elderly, the low-income, the blind and visually impaired, people with other handicapping conditions, people who do not drive and the young, who suffer the most when there is no public transportation,” according to an announcement by Magnolia advocate Jim McIntosh.
