“Every day we carry hundreds of thousands of riders, each of them destined for a place, a person, a moment we can only guess at.”
On a typical day, King County Metro buses, water taxis, vanpools, and other mobility services connect people with what matters in their lives.
That’s the message at the heart of our new campaign – Connecting What Matters. We connect people and communities.
You may have seen our ads on billboards, buses, or Facebook.
We hope you noticed our new tagline too, in both English and Spanish: “Moving forward together” and “Juntos avanzamos.”
We are committed to providing all people and all communities with dependable, easy-to-use public transportation services that safely connect people with where they need to go and improve quality of life.
And yet this really isn’t true is it? I live on the east side, yet my area for the last 19 years has never had service closer than < 2.3 miles–the closest of which has no parking, no sidewalks to get to it, and often no space for bikes on the bus. Service at the closest location would take me 2.5 hours to get to work, but isn't available early enough to get me to work when I want. So how is this 'dependable, easy to use transit for all people'
