Transportation Choices Coalition Friday Forum Series this week focuses on “Your Future Bus Service – Updates from the King County Regional Transit Task Force.”
Are you worried that bus service cuts are coming your way? Curious about what’s been going on with the King County Regional Transit Task Force? Get the answers to your all questions at the Friday Forum.
The King County Regional Transit Task Force was convened in March this year to help shape a policy framework around future transit service investments and potential service cuts. This 31-member group with representatives from local government, business, labor, social services, riders, environmental groups and other transportation experts has been grappling with some tough policy questions in the face of Metro’s significant budget shortfall.
Join our all star panel of task force members to find out how the process went, the recommendations the panel has come up with, and some of the potential challenges moving forward. Victor Obeso, Manager of Service Development at King County Metro and John Howell, facilitator of the Regional Transit Task Force will be on hand to answer questions related to bus service and the task force process.
The panel includes:
- Suzette Cook, Mayor of Kent
- Kate Joncas, President of the Downtown Seattle Association
- Josh Kavanaugh, Director of Transportation Services at the University of Washington
- Seattle Councilmember Tom Rasmussen (invited)
- Bellevue Councilmember Grant Degginger (invited)
