From The Seattle Times by The Seattle Times editorial board (October 12, 2020):
“Seattle voters should approve the city’s Proposition 1, authorizing a sales tax to fund additional Metro bus service.
Some essential workers, including hospital workers, depend on bus service, and the Seattle measure will help preserve routes in the city.
Although ridership fell because of the pandemic and may take time to recover, having a robust urban-transit system remains a necessity. It should also help the city and downtown recover from the economic downturn.”
