We care about the environment
The Department of Transportation is working to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, protect and restore natural habitat, promote healthy lifestyles and vibrant neighborhoods, and use resources wisely in King County.
How do you get around?
We help you do it in ways that are good for you and the environment.

- Tools make it easy: try our Trip Planner (also available as a mobile app) or Bus Tracker, and/or sign up to receive text or email alerts about service.
