Potential Metro cuts: Transit takeaways ahead, if funding’s not replaced

(What the bus network in this area would look like AFTER the cuts, IF they have to be made – click for full-size view)
A big media briefing earlier today followed up on the one back in April warning that big chunks of Metro funding were expiring – remember the Congestion Reduction Charge, and Viaduct mitigation money? At that time, county leaders warned that without action by the Legislature, major Metro cuts could ensue. That action hasn’t been taken yet (though a special session starting today brings some new hope) so Metro has unveiled specifics. There are many details in our as-it-happened coverage on partner site West Seattle Blog; in addition, you can go to this special Metro website to find route-by-route information and a lot more. They’re about to start a round of community meetings, and the schedule includes one in the West Seattle/White Center area: Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in North Delridge, 6 pm December 3rd.
