King County Metro’s bus service faces cuts

Establish a third fare zone

Again and again, King County Metro Transit whines for attention, threatening service cuts with its limited thinking and planning. [“Guest column: State’s inaction will force cuts to King County Metro’s bus service,” Opinion, July 12.]

Why does countywide bus service have only two fare zones? Why is the fare to White Center the same as that to Issaquah?

King County Metro Transit should have established a third fare zone long ago. It made sense 40 years ago. It makes more sense now.
