Bus riders can share their views about transit and other transportation needs with Senate Transportation Committee members at a public forum Monday, Oct. 14 in downtown Seattle. The location has shifted to First Presbyterian Church at 1013 Eighth Ave., Seattle.
These “listening sessions” are part of a statewide tour hosted by the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Where and when
Monday, Oct. 14, 6-9 p.m.
NEW LOCATION: Seattle First Presbyterian Church, 1013 Eighth Ave., Seattle
The forums are a follow-up to the 2013 legislative session. The legislature considered a transportation funding package but did not pass a bill.
Metro faces a $75 million annual shortfall next year, and without a stable, ongoing funding solution, faces major service cuts of up to 600,000 hours of service reductions – or up to 17 percent of Metro’s service countywide – in 2014 and 2015. Public outreach about proposed reductions will begin this fall. Learn more about Metro’s funding and what’s at risk.
From what I have read, the FARE for the Handicapped Bus Passenger would jump $.75 from $.75 to now a $1.50 BUS FARE each time they wanted to use the bus. Is right? … and this is after they dropped the Bus 28 route for much of the day and then not even offering a round trip opportunity within the same hour, when it does run up to Greenwood and 145th Street. I would like to see the return of the Route 28 that had been servicing the Elderly and the Handicapped that lived in facilities like Seattle Housing Authority’s TRICOURT Apartments.
