King County Metro, or Metro for short, is the transit agency for Seattle and King County in Washington state. King County Metro's predecessor was the Municipality of Metropolitan Seattle which took over transit operations from the Seattle Transit System and Metropolitan Transit in 1973 to form an integrated county-wide bus system. In 1994, the operation of the transit system was acquired by King County when Metro and King County merged but transit remained a separate department. In 1996, the bus system officially became known as King County Metro when the new King County Department of Transportation was created.
