Transit Service Being Cut?

Seattle University hosted town hall meeting to discuss transit service future

Major regional transit issues were a hot topic last week when King County Council Members Larry Phillips and Larry Gossett presented the findings from a task force created to study an impending billion dollar deficit.

To plug holes in the budget, King County Metro might be forced to cut 600,000 hours of bus service. Community members said they understand the need to restructure but don’t understand why there need to be so many cuts, if local government continue spending money on creating more roads.

One thing most agreed on, is the need for a more efficient public transit system.
