How can a city encourage affordable housing residents to use transit and shared bikes and scooters more often? Results from…
"The King County Council’s Mobility and Environment Committee voted Wednesday to advance an income-based fare program that would fully subsidize annual ORCA transit passes for those with incomes 80% or below the federal poverty line.
Voting 7-0, the council unanimously agreed to advance the program to a full council hearing. New transit subsidies come on the heels of a 2019-2020 request in the King County biannual budget to establish and implement an income-based fare program by March of 2020. If passed through the council, current changes would take affect mid-2020."
