The new initiative, dubbed the Walking Bus pilot program, was announced internally to King County employees Wednesday — the same day the city council, seemingly going against the wishes of Seattle voters’ rejection of the defund police movement, proposed a nearly $11 million cut from the force.

According to the King County website, the Walking Bus pilot program will take effect on Nov. 15. Starting that day, county employees will be able to “join their colleagues and a Facilities Management Division (FMD) Security Escort each evening walking to the King Street Station and the Coleman Dock from the downtown campus.”

The meeting spot will be at the 4th Ave. Entrance to the King County Courthouse, as the 3rd Ave. entrance was recently closed because individuals living in a homeless encampment on the street had increasingly been attacking or harassing workers and visitors, KTTH Conservative Talk Radio reported.
