On February 10, 2014, the King County Council approved the formation of a Transportation Benefit District. On February 24, 2014, the King County Transportation District voted to place a ballot measure on the April 22nd ballot for the purposes of funding Metro, King County Road Services and city transportation improvements.

In accordance with RCW 42.17A.555, which places limits on the use of public facilities to support or oppose ballot measures, we are in the process of temporarily removing Metro Matters blog posts that may be related to the potential funding measure and have also temporarily suspended the comment feature on blog posts.See our comment policy.

We expect these posts and all comments to be restored after the potential April ballot measure. We appreciate your understanding and continue to value your input, and want to answer your questions as best we can. If you have questions or comments about a transit topic included in Metro Matters’ blog posts, please see individual posts for suggestions of how to reach Metro staff.
