Cost: Free
RSVP: Click here so we have an estimate of the number of people attending

Action Requested:

Attend the October 14 listening tour and urge lawmakers to find a transit funding solution. Consider including the following points in your message:

  • Sustainable transit and road funding is critical for both employers and employees
  • King County has 30 percent of the state’s population, 40 percent of its jobs and half of its payroll
  • 17% cuts to transit will affect 7 out of every 10 transit riders and make it harder to get to work
  • But this is not just a King County problem; failure to pass HB 1954 will put our state at a competitive disadvantage
