The Ride Free Area for buses in downtown Seattle is scheduled to be eliminated on Sept. 29, 2012.
At that time, all bus riders will pay their fare when entering the bus. For Community Transit buses that serve Seattle, the pay-on-entry change will begin on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012.
Metro is currently working with Community Transit, Sound Transit and the city of Seattle on an implementation plan for the Ride Free Area changes. This includes options to address transportation needs of low or no-income people who use the Ride Free Area to travel to essential services in the downtown area. The Sound Transit Board is scheduled to vote in June on charging fares for ST Express bus trips within the downtown area, consistent with current policy for Link light rail.
Public comment on the implementation is being taken through April 13. More information is available by visiting Metro's Ride Free Area page; you can also comment there.
Comments can also be emailed to mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org; or submitted by phone: (206) 296-7643; (206) 263-9988 (Spanish); or (206) 263-9674 (Vietnamese).
Community Transit will provide more information to its Seattle bus riders as the date approaches.
