126 Metro buses out of service because of steering issue

An articulated King County Metro bus is seen pulling away from the curb after a layover at Northgate Transit Center, Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022 in Seattle. Sometimes when a bus pulls away from a curb the accordion-bend can create a blindspot for the sideview mirror which loses view of the back section, curbside.

King County Metro says the precautionary move involving more than 100 buses has reduced weekday service by about 10% with around 19 routes affected.
