Your bus could be on the chopping block! Faced with declining sales tax revenue, King County Metro may have to resort to drastic service cuts. The temporary congestion reduction charge staved off these cuts but it expires in 2014.  To make matters worse, state funds which pay for transit service during the Alaskan Way Viaduct construction run out next year too - two years before the construction ends!

Join King County Metro General Manager Kevin Desmond for a discussion on what the future holds for King County Metro as they grapple with the challenge of keeping service in the face of an unprecedented loss of revenue.  Hear about Metro's plans for potential cuts and how they hope to keep buses running in 2014 and beyond.
