Metro Transit is Looking for Community Input on Service Changes

King County Metro Transit is organizing a sounding board of community members to advise it on service changes.  Below is its announcement.

Are you a bus rider that regularly rides routes in Shoreline or North Seattle?

King County Metro Transit is forming a community sounding board to give us advice about changes to bus service in these areas. We’re looking for a diverse group of members to help us develop service change recommendations for fall 2013. The sounding board will meet 9 to 12 times, from September 2012 to March 2013. Sounding board meetings mostly will be scheduled on Thursday evenings unless a scheduling conflict occurs.

Interested in applying? Fill out our online application by Monday, Sept. 3.

Why change bus service? Starting fall 2013, the Aurora Avenue N corridor will be served by RapidRide E Line between Aurora Village Transit Center to downtown Seattle. The E Line will provide a backbone of new, frequent transit service that other routes in the area can connect to and complement. Working with the sounding board, we’ll be considering changes to improve:

  • connections to the E Line
  • bus service in the neighborhoods surrounding Aurora Avenue N
  • connections between transit activity centers such as Fremont, Wallingford, Greenwood, Greenlake, Northgate and Shoreline

If you’d like us to mail you a printed application, or have questions about the sounding board, please contact: Ashley DeForest, Community Relations Planner at ashley.deforest@kingcounty.gov or via phone at 206-684-1154.
