Help us develop new transportation services

Metro is working with the communities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to help meet their transportation needs. (Learn more)

The project stakeholder working group has finished reviewing feedback from people who live, work, or go to school in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park about transportation needs in these areas.

We used that feedback to develop two options for new transportation services. Now we’d like to know if you think they would help you get where you want to go in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

Two options

  1. Community Ride—A reservation-based service that travels within a specific service area based on where people want to go.
  2. Community Van—Metro vans for local group trips that are scheduled by a Community Transportation Coordinator.
  3. Learn more about these concepts and tell us what you think by Sept 4.

Why Shoreline & Lake Forest Park?

In 2014, Metro was faced with a budget shortfall that forced service reductions across the county. We discontinued evening service on Route 331, which had low ridership.

Now we’re working with the cities of Lake Forest Park and Shoreline and with Shoreline Community College to create solutions to transportation needs created by this reduction.

Community involvement

Our stakeholder working group for this project included representatives from community organizations, neighborhood groups, and our project partners. The group gave us input about transportation needs, advised us as we reached out to people in the affected communities, and helped us customize potential solutions to the transportation needs the communities told us about.

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, and/or emerging technology.
