By Rob Gannon, Metro Transit General Manager
In this moment of change and transition, County Executive Constantine has reaffirmed our values and principles. King County is a place that values women, people of color, people with disabilities, people with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, immigrants and refugees, and people of every religion, or of no religion.
In the delivery of our service to the public, Metro Transit does not tolerate harassment of any kind. The vehicles we operate will remain safe places for our passengers. Acts of harassment on our buses or at our shelters violate Metro Transit’s commitment to inclusion for all in our community and our rider Code of Conduct. Should they occur, we ask people to report them to our employees or call 911 if law enforcement is needed immediately.
We will take enforcement actions against violators of this code. And we are reminding operators of our procedures for addressing violations of the code of conduct aboard their coaches.
King County is a growing community rich in diversity and is one of the world’s great metropolitan areas. Metro demonstrates our contribution by providing the best service possible, safely and with respect given to all our customers. We ask all our riders to join in that commitment.
Ride safe, and help us keep our system safe for everyone.
