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.
