This “listening session” is part of a statewide tour hosted by the Washington State
Department of Transportation. In about a month, Metro will be announcing a proposal to make major service cuts because of our funding shortage. We’ve managed to preserve most service over the past five years by taking many steps, including cutting costs and increasing fares. But some temporary funding runs out next June, so we have no choice but to plan service reductions that would begin in fall 2014.
An additional 45,000 annual service hours will have to be cut from bus service in the Alaskan Way Viaduct corridor next June, when state funding to reduce the impacts of the viaduct replacement project runs out.
Learn more about this and view new, preliminary information about impacts of a countywide reduction on our website.
