If you live in southeast Seattle or Southwest King County, I strongly suggest you attend one of these meetings. Don’t wait until the service changes have been finalized to let Metro and Sound Transit know what you need.

Update: If you can’t attend a meeting, you can provide feedback virtually:
SE Seattle questionnaire
SW King County questionnaire
