Service cuts are coming updated 9/4/2014

September 2014

Metro will cut 151,000 hours of bus service to match our service to available revenues.

February 2015

A second round of cuts has been recommended to the King County Council for February 2015. If the Council approves these cuts, and if a transit initiative is approved by Seattle voters in November 2014, the February cuts could be postponed until June 2015 to allow Seattle and other parties to submit Community Mobility Contracts to preserve service.

More cuts possible in 2015

Future reductions and revisions will be considered as part of the upcoming biennial budget process.
