Metro Service Saved!

Big News on Metro Service

KC Exec Dow Constantine announced a deal in which King County Council to approve the $20 Car Tab increase to save bus service in the County.

Constantine announced that Metro would eliminate the "ride-free" area in Downtown Seattle and this move brings KC Councilmembers Jane Hague and Kathy Lambert along to support a "councilmanic" vote for the rate increase.

While this may be an inconvenience to riders in downtown, it will certainly be a relief to the thousands of riders who depend on their Metro Bus service in Shoreline and all over the county, to get to work and for other needs.
