Share your ideas for future transit service

King County Metro Transit faces increased demand for public transportation with limited resources. Making the best possible use of service hours already on the street, and the buses and transit facilities now in place, is an important reason to consider potential changes. We also want to plan ahead for a time when more resources might be available for transit improvements.

In order to gather comments and ideas from riders on how transit service in this area can be improved, Metro is distributing this newsletter and comment sheet to riders on our transit mailing list, and to those who attend a public workshop or request a comment sheet. A separate mailing with information about the public workshops is being sent to every household in the affected area.

Tell us your ideas

…about changes to transit service for Auburn, Kent, Sea-Tac Airport, Algona, Pacific, Covington, and Enumclaw

King County Metro Transit wants your ideas on how bus service could be improved in these areas of South King County. We will use your suggestions to develop recommendations for changes to bus service and facilities that could be made in the future, when financial resources become available.

We want to know what you think about:

  • Bus service frequency, routing, and hours of operation on routes that serve the Auburn and Kent stations
  • Ways to make service more efficient
  • Consolidation of routes to reduce service duplication
  • Providing a direct bus connection between Auburn, Kent, and Sea-Tac Airport
  • Coordination between Metro service and Sound Transit's Regional Express bus routes and Sounder Commuter Rail trains
  • Transit facilities such as benches, shelters, and bus stops
  • Which changes should receive highest priority
