As our country and county continue to transition through the pandemic’s recovery phases, King County Metro is making plans to gradually restore suspended service.
In Spring 2020, Metro suspended a significant amount of transit service due to the outbreak of COVID-19 – as a result, ridership and revenue declined. Despite challenges, Metro maintained a regional transit network to serve the more than one in four of our customers who never stopped counting on us to access work and essential needs.
Still, current ridership remains lower than before the pandemic, and some service suspensions remain in place across our system. Looking forward, public transit is at the heart of a successful recovery from the health and economic crises caused by COVID-19. As our region recovers and daily, local travel increases, Metro plans to systematically restore suspended transit service.
In order to make the most informed service decisions for King County residents and Metro customers, Metro is seeking community feedback through a short survey on Metro’s route to recovery, due by March 8, 2021.
The survey is available in six languages (Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Arabic, Korean, and English). Below are the links to the in-language surveys/pages.

Metro remains committed to their mission of expanding and improving a regional mobility network that is safe, equitable, and sustainable. With community input, planning for service recovery they continue to look as comprehensive and inclusive as possible. They are still moving forward together.
