Ride with Pride: Metro celebrates and honors LGBTQ riders and employees

Editor’s Note: Plan to travel early and prepare for service delays and crowded transit service as an estimated 200,000 people will be downtown for the parade. Transit service will be rerouted Sunday, June 25, off of Fourth Avenue in Seattle from about 7 a.m. to the late evening during the Seattle Pride Parade.

This weekend, Metro is proud to participate in the Seattle Pride Parade. On behalf of our employees and riders who identify as LGBTQ, we march with you.

King County is reaffirming its steadfast commitment to fairness, justice and diversity. At a time when the rights of many in our country are under threat, our community is strong and supports our LGBTQ employees and customers.

When we hear stories of bus drivers and riders who help and care for each other, it represents the best of our greater community.

Every member of our community is entitled to travel without fear, free of harassment, intimidation or harm. Each customer is expected to ride in a way that is respectful of other customers and conforms with Metro’s Code of Conduct. Join us in our pledge to make our transit system safer, more inclusive, and we will be stronger together.

“Whether you arrived here last week or whether you’ve lived here for five generations, you belong here” – King County Executive Dow Constantine
