Metro has announced a proposal to drastically reduce bus service around the county when temporary funding and cash reserves run out next year. The proposal includes the possibility of deleting 74 routes and reducing or revising another 107. While 33 routes would not be touched directly, the riders would likely feel the effects of service reductions elsewhere through increased crowding and slower trips—so this proposal touches the entire county.
King County has embarked on the an ambitious outreach effort to share the service reduction proposal with those who will be affected and provide affected riders avenues of discussion about impacts the reductions.
