The King County Council recently voted to pass a two-year, $20 vehicle license fee to preserve Metro bus service. Part of the deal was an agreement to phase out the downtown Seattle bus Ride Free Area, which costs the county around $2 million a year, according to online news site PubliCola. It has a debate
between Real Change Executive Director Tim Harris and Downtown Seattle Association Vice President Jon Scholes (with environmentalist and SeattleScape blogger Roger Valdez) on eliminating the Free Ride Area. Do you think it should be eliminated or saved?
