Transit Coalition letter about Metro and Tuesday 2/4 Public Hearing

Dear Central Transit Community Coalition members:

Thank you so much for your endorsement of the attached CTCC letter*, which was delivered to Councty Executive Dow Constantine's office on Friday afternoon. Copies were delivered to King County Councilmembers, Metro and City of Seattle Mayor and City Councilmembers as well. Also included is a map illustrating the impacts to the network of routes which serve our communities and help connect us across the city.
Please note that King County Council is holding a Public Hearing at Union Station, 401 S. Jackson St., this Tuesday, February 4, at 6:00pm, with sign-up starting at 5:30pm(although the sign-up line will start forming before that). The hearing is on the proposed Transportation Benefit District (TBD) and funding proposal of a flat $60 car tab and 0.1% sales tax increase to provide funding for Metro (60%) and roads (40%). The County Council is scheduled to vote on the TBD on 2/10 and the  public vote on the ballot measure is scheduled for April 22.
This is the only public hearing on this topic before the April vote, so it is an opportunity to voice your concerns as well as support for the needed funding to prevent the proposed set of cuts and restructures.
If you cannot attend, comments can be sent to: and KCexec@kingcounty.govBe sure to ask for a response.
If you would like additional information, please contact us at
Thank you again for your help.
