|Hi , —
Think traffic is bad now? It’s going to be far worse when tens of thousands of bus riders in the central Puget Sound see their buses cut, forcing them back into a car to drive to work.
And worse than traffic, what about the thousands of Washingtonians who will no longer have an affordable or reliable way to get to work, school, or everywhere in between?
We can’t just stand by and let this happen, not when there’s an easy solution at hand. We need the legislature to act now to pass local transit options.
Email your legislators to ask them to support passing local transit options to prevent more devastating cuts to bus service.
Bus service is in bad shape. Pierce Transit has cut service by 43% and plans another 28% cut this year. Community Transit in Snohomish County has eliminated service on Sundays and has cut service 37% over the past 4 years. King County Metro bus cuts next year will impact 70% of the 400,000 bus riders in King County unless we pass a bill this year to support more bus service.
Last week in Olympia, we sent 50 Mayors, City Councilmembers, and CEOs to lobby the Legislature to pass a local options bill this session to keep our buses on the streets in the Puget Sound. Now we need your help to make sure the legislature knows how many more Washingtonians are watching and waiting for them to act too.
Please email your legislator today and tell them to stop more bus cuts by passing local transit options!
Thank you for all that you do.

P.S. Fighting to save transit service hasn’t been easy. But if we can pass local funding options this legislative session, we can fix our streets and restore service.
