King County Council
Discussing the future of transit service
More than 300 people joined the members of the Transportation, Economy and Environment (TrEE) Committee at a special meeting to give the committee their concerns and compliments on the proposed ordinances seeking to reconfigure bus services in anticipation of the arrival of Sound Transit will begin its University Link service, bringing light rail to both Capitol Hill and University of Washington Station (Husky Stadium).
Public transportation plays a vital role in getting county residents to work, school, and back home to their families quickly, safely, and reliably. Those in the audience spoke about how one of the biggest transit service changes since the 2009 opening of Link light rail would impact their lives.
