City Inside/Out: Transportation Turmoil
City Inside/Out: Transportation Turmoil
The state Legislature stalled on a statewide transportation package, so King County leaders have proposed a ballot measure that would give voters a chance to save Metro bus service and fund county and city roads. The April 22 ballot measure would call for a 0.1% percent sales tax increase plus a $60 yearly car tab fee. At stake, service cuts including the elimination of 74 bus routes and reduced service on 107 routes. What led to Metro`s financial crisis? And will voters support the ballot measure? Joining host Brian Callanan in studio are Kevin Desmond, general manager of King County Metro Transit; Kate Joncas, president and CEO of Downtown Seattle Association; Rob Johnson, executive director of the Transportation Choices Coalition; and King County Councilmember Larry Phillips, chair of the council`s transportation committee.
