Ok, so it hasn’t happened yet. But as one would expect, more cuts are on the table. The Feds haven’t fixed the transit situation with funding options & the local cities & states just keep sucking money out into other solutions. It’s kind of par for the course. Seattle is threatened with a 17% loss in service. Most bus lines would lose one out of every bus. The only lines that would likely remain untouched would be a few of the Rapid Ride lines and high capacity runs during rush hour. But everything else is up for cutting.
What can you do about it as a citizen of Washington and Seattle? Go and message your elected leaders.
The US is seriously losing it’s ground right now, it’s happening fast. This is seriously getting interesting in some scary kinds of ways. Weigh in with your opinion, it may be the difference between standing in the cold, sitting in MORE traffic in Seattle or worse.
17% is better than 70%! like in Portland
Actually those aren’t comparable at all. Trimet is only talking about a “prospective” loss of 70% of services that could happen years from now. No more cuts have been announced.
The 17% cut is the next service level change for King County Metro, it isn’t a “theoretical” cut for years from now, it’s coming up SOON.
You really gotta read the whole thing man… come on now.
