King County Executive puts brakes on non-commercial Metro bus advertising
King County Executive Dow Constantine says the escalation of global interest in a bus placard critical of Israel introduces significant security concerns and makes Metro buses vulnerable to disruption.
Because of this, he’s approved an interim policy that calls for a halt to the acceptance of any new non-commercial advertising on King County buses.
Metro expects to complete work on a permanent transit ad policy by the end of January.
