The King County Council’s Transportation, Economy and Environment Committee will take public comments on proposed changes to Metro bus service in Bellevue, Redmond, Clyde Hill, Medina, and South Kirkland at a hearing on April 12.

The hearing will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Mercer Island Community Center (8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island – see map).

The proposed changes would coincide with the launch of the RapidRide B Line, and are intended to improve connections among the B Line and other Metro and Sound Transit routes. The changes would also improve connections with major shopping and employment centers and schools.

However, some routes would be discontinued so Metro can use scarce resources more effectively. Riders of routes that are discontinued would have other transit options available.
