Tomorrow at 4:00 p.m., the King County council will be hearing public testimony at Union Station (401 S Jackson St) on proposed Metro service cuts that would eliminate 65 bus routes in the county and hobble another 86 routes. As Professor Goldy explains, that's "a capacity cut equivalent to about a quarter of I-5's weekday traffic, or more than half of the Viaduct's."
Put another way, if you ride Metro with any regularity, this will likely affect you—Metro estimates the cuts would impact 70 percent of its ridership. So go. Testify, if you can:
