We’re working with people who live, work, or go to school in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to find new ways to meet their transportation needs.

What’s happened so far?

First, we asked the community about transportation needs in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. We used this feedback to develop two service concepts to address the needs we’d heard about. In Summer 2017, we asked people to tell us what they thought about these two concepts. More than 1,100 people gave us feedback.

Now we’re working with our project stakeholder working group, Shoreline Community College, and the cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to review all the input we’ve received.

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.
