Thanks so much for your diligence in keeping not only the community informed, but for being a catalyst for pressuring our public leaders to respond.

I wanted to point out that the address listed for the Transit Office is slightly incorrect. It is actually located at 5315 1st PLACE, NE. 5315 1st Street is over near Hawaii Ave NE.

Again, thanks so much.
