We’re investing in transit.
Starting this Saturday, September 22, King County Metro’s fall service change will happen – this is when you’ll notice our investments coming through for you. We’ve added over 300 trips each week on popular bus routes across the city, including 32 trips during weekday peak periods to help alleviate crowded bus routes.
