- The Bellevue City Council on Monday night became the fourth Eastside government to say it favors light rail over buses for a high-capacity transit line planned from Seattle to Redmond.
The vote was 5-2, with councilmen Don Davidson and Conrad Lee voting no. Davidson said the question posed by Sound Transit â€“ either light rail or bus rapid transit that would later be converted to light rail â€“ was unfair and slanted.
"Sound Transit asks, 'Do you want light rail or do you want light rail?' " Davidson said. "We don't have any choice."
