Seattle Mystery

This evening, it was dark and drizzly in Downtown Seattle. And, as it always happens in weather like this, the buses are extra-packed and traffic is extra-heavy.

A RapidRide bus blocked the intersection at 3rd & Columbia. It had to, otherwise it would have never been able to make the right turn onto Columbia, which was a solid block of cars.

Our 47 home from 4th & Pike was standing-room only (a rarity for the 47). We could travel only a block every green light on Pike, despite the bus-only lane.

I get why buses are so full in weather like this – people are opting not to walk to their destinations. But why are there so many more cars on the streets?
