Do you live in or around Normandy Park? If so, we’d like your help improving transportation there.

Metro has partnered with the City of Normandy Park to bring innovative transportation service to its residents. Nearly 580 residents completed our survey last fall to tell us about transportation needs in the city. We used this input to develop four transportation service concepts to address those needs.

Four service concepts

Community van

Metro vans for local group trips, scheduled by a Community Transportation Coordinator to meet local needs.

TripPool

Metro offers vans to volunteer drivers willing to use an online app to match with and pick-up fellow commuters along the way to catch transit.

Community Ride

A reservation-based service that travels within a specified service area based on where people want to go.

Neighborhood Transportation Hub(s)

One or more physical locations throughout the city’s residential area where residents can gather to take shared trips.

Why Normandy Park?

Today, Normandy Park does not have good connections to high-capacity regional transit. There’s no way to get to Link light rail by transit without a transfer. Buses don’t come very often along First Avenue S (Normandy Park’s main corridor), and they’re too far away for many residents to reach on foot. Yet the city is home to a number of employers and a growing senior population that would benefit from new transportation solutions in the area.

Have a say

Community involvement

As part of this project, Metro formed a stakeholder working group whose membership includes representatives from employers, developers, and other organizations in the project area. This group is giving us input about transportation needs and gaps, as well as advice and assistance to help us reach as many people as possible through public surveys and other outreach methods. It will also participate in the design of potential solutions to meet local transportation needs.

Community members can take part by filling out our surveys, signing up to receive project updates via email or text, and/or checking this website for updates and information about upcoming events.

About Community Connections

Community Connections is a four-year (2015-2018) demonstration program in which Metro works with local governments and community partners to develop innovative and cost-efficient transportation solutions in areas of King County that don’t have the infrastructure, density, or land use to support regular, fixed-route bus service. The program aims to develop, test, and evaluate new transportation services that take advantage of innovative ideas, unique partnerships, or emerging technology.
