Regulations and Notices
Reimbursement from the WAS Fund
The City of Seattle and King County work cooperatively to provide for-hire regulatory services to the public. The City and the County each created Wheelchair Accessible Services (WAS) Funds (Fund) to ensure the continued viability of wheelchair accessible for-hire transportation service for passengers throughout the City and County. The proposed Rule to supersede City of Seattle Clerk File 319353 and replace King County Document Code Number FIN-10-3-PR, which establish the conditions, procedures, and methodology for distributing proceeds from the Fund to eligible drivers and owners of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles, was posted for comment November 13, 2019 through December 30, 2019.
This final Rule was signed January 14, 2020 and is effective February 14, 2020.
