June is Ride Transit Month, and it will be here in just a few weeks. This year’s theme is going to be The Future Takes Transit, and we have some incredibly exciting things in store! We wanted to share two things before the month begins.

First, we’re planning to kick off the month with an in-person event, and you’re invited! Join us for our Tri-Cities Mixer and Ride Transit Month kickoff on Thursday, June 2 in Richland, WA:

And second, we want you to have your official Ride Transit Month t-shirts in time to wear all June long! This year’s official Ride Transit Month tees are now available! See the choices and order yours in time for June:

We’ll have a full schedule of events available next week. In the mean time, see everything we’ve been up to recently in our monthly newsletter, below.

Group Chat on fare enforcement

“We have housing crisis. We have opioid crisis. We have all of these things, where people aren’t getting the support they need. And the bus is one of the last remaining public spaces.”

Our own Hester Serebrin joined Barbara Baquero and Nathan Vass for Seattle Met’s Group Chat. Catch the conversation.

Want to learn more about the recent changes to fare enforcement at King County Metro and Sound Transit, and what they will mean for riders? Join us and Seattle Transit Riders’ Union for a Transit Talk on May 17 at 1:00pm all about it.

Staff pick

Three miles of Lake Washington Boulevard will be open only to people, not cars, during 10 weekends this summer and I’m so excited for the return of this event! I like it because it usually feels so dangerous to ride in traffic in the park — car drivers often use the Boulevard to avoid traffic and it is not safe for kids and people who are walking, riding bikes, or scootering. I’m looking forward to enjoying it as part of summer this year!
