7. The buses in Seattle get you a lot closer to where you live than the light rail does.

They yanked a bunch of routes lately and the people who are in the most distress over it are the disabled. An extra half mile walk (especially in a town where many of the neighborhoods are still resistant to sidewalks) and mean the difference to an elderly or disabled person whether they are trapped in their house or can go anywhere.

I don't know anyone who hates buses per se, as long as the schedules are reasonably adhered to, they're not too full, and riding them doesn't involve too many transfers.
