Let’s do this
The Municipal League of King County’s critique of Metro transit is well taken, but there is one huge omission [“Metro Transit, an audit is scheduled,” Editorial, Nov. 25]. Even with a much better allocation of bus service, the demand in the years ahead is likely to far exceed Metro’s funding capacity.
King County needs to ask the state Legislature for a local-option, vehicle carbon tax, or a similar “green tax.” I can’t think of a better way to get serious about both green house gases and peak oil.
