As King County Metro grows and changes in our role as the regional mobility provider, there’s something we’ll never leave behind: our commitment to keeping Metro safe and welcoming for everyone who uses our services or works here. The recent terrible events in Texas, New York City and elsewhere are grim reminders of how important that commitment is.

New signs you’ll see on our buses for the long term reflect our promise to always look out for one another. They assure customers that “all are welcome here,” regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, disability or national origin. They make it clear that harassment won’t be tolerated.

Metro’s policy is unchanged, but we’ve renewed our energy and commitment to help address problems when they are identified by riders, either through our drivers or directly through law enforcement via 911.
