King County Executive Dow Constantine published a news
release yesterday regarding the initial findings of an evaluation of options
for replacing King County Metro Transit's <http://www.kingcounty.gov/metro>
aging trolley bus fleet. These initial findings suggest that when all
factors are considered - including available funding - new electric trolley
buses would be the most cost-effective replacement with the least
environmental impacts, according to Executive Constantine. 

Metro is inviting the public to learn more about the initial findings of the
trolley bus system evaluation at an open house on:

Tuesday, April 19 
5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Plymouth Congregational Church
1217 6th Ave., Seattle 


The initial findings for the Trolley Evaluation Study will soon be available
and posted on the project
<http://metro.kingcounty.gov/up/projects/trolleyevaluation.html> website in
the next two weeks. Please check back for more information at
http://kingcounty.gov/  <http://kingcounty.gov/%20trolleyevaluation.html>
trolleyevaluation.html . In the meantime, if you have any questions, don't
hesitate to get in touch.
