County Council to hold special meeting to hear from public on proposed transit service reductions

Monday, May 26, 2014

As the Metropolitan King County Council begins its deliberations on proposed legislation implementing the reduction of Metro Transit bus service, the public will have the opportunity to speak to the Council at a special meeting Thursday, May 29 at 1:30pm in the council chambers, King County Courthouse, 516 3rd Ave, Seattle 98104. 10th floor.

The meeting will be carried LIVE on King County TV, seen on Comcast and Wave Cable Channel 22.

The County Executive has sent the County Council legislation on how he proposes to phase in reduction of service hours. The Executive’s ordinance proposes service reductions starting in September, with Metro ultimately eliminating 72 bus routes and reducing or revising another 84 routes over four quarters.

The Council’s Transportation, Economy and Environment (TrEE) Committee held three special night meetings in Seattle, Bellevue and Renton to gather public input. The special Council meeting will be the public’s final opportunity to discuss their transit priorities before the Council begins its final consideration of the legislation. The Council is expected to act on the proposal early next month.

Metro would sooner moon the voters than tighten its belt.
