The King County Transit Advisory Commission improves transit services, planning, and programs by advising Metro’s staff members and general manager, the King County Executive and Council, local jurisdictions, and subarea transportation boards concerning transit policy issues.

About the commission

The commission was established in January 2011 by King County ordinance #17025 (PDF download).The ordinance merged two previous advisory groups, the Transit Advisory Committee and the Accessible Services Advisory Committee.

  • Advise Metro on the inception and development of long-range planning efforts.
  • Advise Metro and King County on issues essential to transit service in King County, including matters of concern to the elderly and persons with disabilities.
  • Serve as a resource for inter-jurisdictional transit promotion and coordination.

The commission members include residents, businesses, and other stakeholders concerned about transit service in the county. Most are bus riders. All live in King County, and collectively they reflect the county's diversity. At least half are people who have disabilities, are elderly, or work with these populations.

Members are appointed by the King County Executive and approved by the King County Council for two-year appointments.

The commission meets monthly or as needed to complete its work plan and address other issues as they arise. Monthly meetings are held from 6 to 8 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month in downtown Seattle at the King Street Center, 201 S Jackson Street.

These meetings are open to the public, but please note that the commission is not a decision making body, so it does not accept public comment. If you wish to express your views on transit to decision makers, the King County Council's Regional Transit Committee and Mobility Committee meet regularly and offer time on their agendas for public comment.

Meeting minutes and materials

The commission is currently seeking a member from District 2 (Central Area, Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill, the Rainier Valley, Seward Park, UW, Fremont, Ravenna, Laurelhurst and Skway).
