Support public transit at Westlake, Valentine's Day at noon

Valentine’s Day Informational Picket

— Roll Back the Fare Hikes!
— Keep Public Transit Accessible to All!
— Honor Transit Workers with a Fair Contract!

Saturday, February 14, 12:00 pm

<span”>After approving more taxes to save bus service, Seattleites now face a fare hike — compliments of King County elected officials. On March 1, fares rise 25 cents, and more for seniors. Meanwhile, Metro is cutting rider info on weekends and denying Metro transit workers a fair contract.

Rather than hand Boeing $8.7 billion in sweetheart deals, elected officials need to fix the state’s regressive tax structure. Help build a movement to win progressive funding that includes taxing King County’s wealth: expand public transit, lower fares, and end Metro’s sweatshop on wheels with a fair contract.

    Tell them to show the love for public transit and a humane work environment!
