King County residents and Metro Transit riders can track bus ridership, vehicle breakdowns, accident rates and how often buses arrive on time, as the transit agency rolls out performance data to the public.

Metro Transit offers Monthly Performance Measures — graphs and data about ridership trends, service quality measures, safety and security data, and some financial information.

The website launched Monday. The agency plans to update some statistics monthly and other reports on a regular basis.

“As a public agency, Metro Transit is accountable to the people we serve,” Metro Transit General Manager Kevin Desmond said in a statement. “We want to make it easy for our customers and others to find information about our performance, and see how we are measuring up to our targeted goals.”

Staffers developed the website during the past year. Offering the performance information to the public is a recommendation from the Regional Transit Task Force. (Issaquah Councilman Fred Butler served on the task force.)

Desmond said he hopes to see the website evolve over time, and include with more data and other information.
