We'd like to thank Council Members Bagshaw, Burgess, Clark, Godden, Harrell, Licata, Rasmussen, and Sawant, as well as Mayor Murray for supporting a solution that preserves modern, affordable, and convenient transportation options for residents across the city.

This groundbreaking agreement will serve as an example to cities around the country, showing that nothing can stop our movement when we work together.
