King County is growing quickly. Our economy is doing well, but unfortunately, rising housing prices mean that many people must live farther from work and drive long distances. That’s not good for quality of life, and it’s not good for the environment – transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in King County. At the same time, innovations in mobility services mean there are many more ways to get around than ever before, but many of these services can be expensive and lead to more cars on the road and more pollution in the air.
King County Metro needs your help to address these challenges.
We are the largest transit provider in King County, but we know we must do more.
How can we address the needs of our growing county in a way that is equitable and addresses our climate crisis? How should Metro work with new and innovative mobility services, such as rideshare or bikeshare? How can Metro better serve low-income people, people of color, indigenous people, immigrants and refugees, people with disabilities, LGBTQI+ communities, and limited-English speaking communities?
King County Metro is working with an Equity Cabinet of community leaders from the county to develop a Mobility Framework. This Framework will guide our budget and investments over the next decade. But, we need to hear from you. Please take this survey and let us know how we can move forward together.
