If looking at or planning to move to NE Seattle, or currently living or commuting there, you should be aware, with the upcoming opening (early 2016) of the Montlake/Husky Stadium ULink light rail station, that large changes to the bus network/routes in that area have been recommended by Metro Transit, with a de-emphasis on one-seat north-south bus routes and an emphasis on frequency over coverage. Several routes are slated to be eliminated, including to the 25, 30, 43, 68, 71, 72, 242. Others will be significantly revised.

For people who are able to access the new network, the ability to get around town will be greatly improved. On the other hand, with geographic coverage being sacrificed to greater frequency, many people with mobility issues (seniors, disabled, and children), who may not be able to walk the longer distances to, or negotiate hurdles in the way of, frequent service, will face greater challenges. Many seniors and disabled now able to access the regular bus system could be forced to use the ACCESS system, which is by far Metro's most expensive service.

No, the 41 will stay as it is. The 16 would no longer serve Northgate, however, but become the 62 and veer off to Sand Point. From what I can tell, there would no longer be a one-seat ride between Northgate and the heart of the Wallingford business district (where the QFC is). You'd have to transfer to the 44.

That's not good. Tonight I took bus 16 from Northgate to Wallingford. If route 16 no longer stops at Northgate how will I get to Wallingford?

You would catch the 26X (which will combine the current 26/26X) from Northgate and then transfer either to the 62 (which replaces the 16) at Green Lake or the 44 on 45th.

These are only recommendations, but my impression is that these changes will probably stick.

Depends on how long the transfer wait is. The 26X will give you a one-seat ride to Dick's on 45th.
