The #MeToo movement comes to your commute

Apr 25, 2018

Ridership is up on King Country Metro. Night bus services are up. And so are reports of sexual misconduct.

Over the past five years, there's been a rise in the number of incidents reported to Metro on its buses. That rise became a spike over the last year or two, and the city thinks the #MeToo movement may have had a hand in that, writes Seattle Times reporter Jessica Lee.

Bill Radke spoke to her about what Metro's doing in response; we also heard from an anonymous rider with her own story of harassment and reporting to share.
