Innovation in action
The Alternative Services program brings service to parts of King County that don't have the infrastructure, density, or land use to support traditional fixed-route bus service. In such areas, alternative transportation services may be a better match for community transportation needs. They may also be more cost-effective.
This 2-year demonstration project is an opportunity to experiment with innovative transportation models. By partnering with local governments, King County Metro will develop transportation options tailor-made to the needs of the community.
Examples of alternative services
