Service cuts proposed
Metro must plan now for major service cuts in absence of funding
We’ve cut costs, raised fares, and created other efficiencies to preserve most service over the past five years. But temporary funding authority from the state expires in June, and unless action is taken on stable funding, Metro must plan now for drastic service reductions next year.
- 74 routes would be deleted.
- 107 routes would be changed.
- 33 unchanged routes would likely become more crowded.
More than 80 percent of Metro’s bus and DART routes would be affected.
Riders and communities across King County would feel the impacts: fewer travel options, longer waits between buses, more transfers, more-crowded and less-reliable buses, and increased traffic congestion.
