<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 stateâ€™s regressive tax structure. Help build a movement to win progressive funding that includes taxing King Countyâ€™s wealth: expand public transit, lower fares, and end Metroâ€™s sweatshop on wheels with a fair contract.
