Request an Accommodation
If you have a disability and believe you may need an accommodation to fully and equally participate in a court proceeding or activity, you may request an accommodation. Accommodation requests are granted to any qualified person with a disability for whom an accommodation is reasonable and necessary under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or under Washington State Court General Rule (GR) 33.
You may be required to provide additional information for the court to properly evaluate your reasonable accommodation request. If medical or other health information is requested, it will be sealed. The submitter may also ask the court to seal the documents. Generally, five-day advance notice is required to review reasonable accommodation requests. However, a response to an immediate need for accommodation will be provided to the fullest extent possible.
Please complete a Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form to initiate your request. Instructions for completing and submitting the form are available HERE. If you are providing confidential medical records or other health information and would like to request that these documents be sealed, please also complete a Sealed Medical and Health Information Cover Sheet (also available as a PDF document).

Public Access Notice
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), King County must provide information to the public about its obligation to ensure the accessibility of its facilities, programs, services, and activities to members of the public with disabilities. King County also must let the public know whom to contact if they have questions about the ADA, would like to request reasonable accommodations, or if they are aware of barriers to accessibility.
Please read the Superior Court Public Access Notice, which satisfies this public notification requirement.
Take a Survey to Help Us Improve On-Demand, Wheelchair Accessible For-Hire Transportation
The City of Seattle and King County are working to improve on-demand, wheelchair accessible for-hire transportation, which includes taxicab, flat-rate/for-hire, and transportation network company (or TNC, e.g., Uber and lift) services.
The City and County are exploring ways to make it easier for those who use wheelchairs and other mobility devices to find and request on-demand trips, as part of a broader effort to make the local transportation system more equitable and accessible for all.
Before implementing any program improvements or changes, we are conducting a survey of individuals who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices, and their family members, caregivers, and service providers. The results from the survey will help us understand how we can improve wheelchair accessible for-hire transportation to better meet the needs of communities across Seattle and King County.
Follow the links below to take the survey (available in 8 languages), and please help us get the word out by sharing this message with your organization, members, customers, and/or networks.
