Chants of “Save our Metro!” greeted state legislators who came to Seattle on Monday for the “transportation listening tour” session.
About 450 people attended the three-hour meeting. A steady stream of transit users, business leaders, elected officials and others told their stories of transportation needs in King County. Many spoke about the importance of the service Metro Transit provides.
The hearing was recorded and is available online through TVW.
