King County Metro Seeking Feedback
Posted on 02/17/2021

Via King County Metro Transit:

As we continue to transition through the pandemic’s recovery phases, King County Metro is making plans to gradually restore suspended service where needed most. In order to make the most informed service decisions for King County residents and Metro customers, we are seeking community feedback through a short survey on Metro’s route to recovery. Responses are due by 11:59 p.m. March 8, 2021. Your valuable input will help transit planners identify and recommend priority service changes in September 2021 and beyond. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean and Arabic.

In spring 2020, Metro suspended a significant amount of transit service due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the face of declining revenue and ridership demand. Despite challenges, Metro maintained a regional transit network to serve the more than one in four of our customers who continued to count on service to access work and essential needs. Ridership demand remains lower than before the pandemic, and some service suspensions remain in place across our system.

Looking forward, public transit is at the heart of a successful recovery from the health and economic crises caused by COVID-19. As our region recovers and daily, local travel demand increases, Metro plans to systematically restore suspended transit service within available resources.

Metro remains committed to our mission of expanding and improving a regional mobility network that is safe, equitable, and sustainable. With community input, planning for service recovery will continue to look as comprehensive and inclusive as possible. We are still moving forward together.
