Hearings on bus cuts to begin


advertising

Public hearings start this week on proposed cuts to King County Metro Transit service.

Metro has published a list showing the bus routes to be reduced or taken away with a 16 percent reduction to operating hours. The cuts, which Metro had said would occur if voters rejected Proposition 1 last month, would be phased in over 2014-15, beginning Sept. 27.

But Metropolitan King County Council members must first vote — and that means they’re still listening.

The council’s hearings will be held in:

• Seattle: Tuesday, at Union Station, 401 S. Jackson Street.

• Bellevue, Thursday, at City Hall, 450 110th Ave. N.E.

• Renton, May 20, at the Renton Pavilion Event Center, 233 Burnett Ave. S.

Each begins with sign-in at 5:30 p.m. and public testimony at 6 p.m. The county didn’t list an end time.

Similar hearings in 2011 drew hundreds of people and stretched deep into the night.

Or, people may testify online, by leaving written comments at http://kingcounty.gov/council/testimony.aspx
