Low Income Fare Advisory Committee Meeting: Wednesday, January 30

January 23, 2013

Exciting news! Yesterday the King County Council formally approved the formation of a Low Income Fare Advisory Committee, which will meet for the first time on January 30, 4:00 to 6:30 pm at the King Street Center (201 S. Jackson St.), 8th Floor Conference Center.

The committee will meet every 3 to 4 weeks and is scheduled to give its recommendations to the Council by July 1, 2013. Transit Riders Union organizer Katie Wilson will represent the TRU as a member of this committee.

These meetings are open to the public and include a public comment period. Please attend and testify to the need for a low income fare! [Correction: public comments can be submitted in writing and a summary of comments will be read at the next meeting.]

Check back for updates, including the dates of future meetings.

    Actually, there IS a public comment period at the end of the meeting, and they were quite receptive to the several comments that were offered and even engaged in a bit of discussion around some of them.

    Also, there are several Metro, city, and county leaders around during the break…just saying. I bent a few ears and was overheard by a few more passing by in the hall on break. 😉
