Public Transportation Visioning Events in South and East King County May 18 & 19, 6-8pm

What is the future of public transportation in our region? Come hear a panel of experts speak, ask questions and share your ideas on Monday, May 18 in Federal Way and Tuesday, May 19 in Bellevue.

With King County growing fast, it’s time to plan for a public transportation system that moves more people and moves them better. What should our transit system look like in 25 years? How can we support our economy, our environment, and the people who live here? How will Metro integrate with the expanding light rail system? What facilities and technology are needed to support those services? These are the kind of questions that Metro will be seeking your input about over the next year as we develop Metro’s Long Range Public Transportation Plan.
