[ARCHIVED] Help Shape Future of Transit in King County

You’re invited to share your thoughts on King County Metro Transit's long-range plan to create a seamless transit system that provides passengers with more fast, reliable options to get to more destinations.

Metro created an online survey and will co-host a series of open houses with Sound Transit where you can provide input on the draft of the plan — Metro Connects — that will set the course for what transportation will look like in 25 years as King County's population continues to grow.

"I invite everyone to share their ideas as we finalize the long-range plan that will shape the future of transportation in our region," King County Executive Dow Constantine said. "Metro Connects will be our atlas as we create an integrated transit system that provides more choices to get to more places on time."

The input Metro receives from the online survey and open houses will help shape the final draft of the long-range plan that Constantine will send to the King County Council this fall.

The draft of Metro Connects is based, in part, on feedback Metro received in 2015 during an extensive yearlong community outreach. Residents told Metro that they want more frequent, better-connected bus and light-rail service to more destinations, starting earlier and ending later each day. Metro Connects is the plan to deliver that service.
