Well, I was at a Park & Ride here and took a bus or two. Usually, I drive. While waiting for the bus, I saw three needles with orange caps. I relayed to one bus driver that several needles were on the ground and exposed. He replied, ”that’s not my job.” I had no idea what he meant, but he pretended at least two or three times ’not to hear me.’ Nice try!
The bus driver didn’t seem to care about community members – at all. The bus driver passed the buck and did not want to address the issue in front of his face. Yet, you pay his salary with your rider fare, and he refuses to service you and the community.
This is not a judgment towards anyone with addiction issues or who may be shooting up heroin. But, rather is written to showcase the sheer negligence of the King County Metro bus driver who didn’t see the importance of keeping the sidewalk ’needle free.’ A pet could walk by or, you yourself could step on the needles. In fact, I almost did.
Not a good ’first impression’ of this area. Save yourself and don’t go here. What a waste of my time taking a trip out here. Good riddance.
You all deserve each other!
