SHARE and WHEEL are so on the ball!

Sarcasm in case you missed it. They knew the ride free area was closing two years ago and finally got around to caring, typical.

These bus tickets are the lifeline of these out of downtown shelters. Where is the love of mankind?

This is a double blow to Seattle's low income and homeless residents. No bus tickets means no shelter, and witbout shelter people die.

The legitimate and well managed shelters do get bus tickets, the only ones not getting them are the failed ones that produce no results. Buses cost money to operate, they can't give the tickets to everyone who asks for them or there will be no buses left to use.

Many Homeless from Seattle, Tacoma, and other parts of the WA state are leaving or already left to go to Olympia and Portland where funded homeless programs still exist or are being expanded.
