According to this King County website, there’s been a production problem with the run of January 2009 PugetPasses, so many customers may not receive their passes in the mail in time for next month. They are also not in stock at the various walk-up sales outlets.
Not to fear, however. I’ve received word that December 2008 PugetPasses will be honored through January 9, 2009 on Sound Transit, King County Metro, Community Transit, Pierce Transit, and Everett Transit. The flyer, of which I’ve seen an advance copy, will allegedly be out on RPIN.org in the next few days.
Remember, also, that your February pass’s value may have to be 25 cents higher to keep up with rising Metro fares.
