Sims goes public with Metro fare increase recommendation

County Executive Ron Sims just announced this on his blog: He’s recommending a 25-cent increase this year, 25 cents more in 2010. Read his full explanation here. 6:16 PM UPDATE: Our area’s County Councilmember Dow Constantine, who also is closely involved in this issue as chair of the council’s Transportation Committee, has issued a statement about Sims’ proposal – read on:

Executive Sims has put forward an interesting proposal. Many questions remain to be answered about how to ensure adequate funding for bus service in King County. The King County Council will consider every option before any action is taken. We do not want to be put in the position of making dramatic cuts to existing service or delaying major improvements called for by voters when they approved the 2006 Transit Now ballot issue.
