Do you live or work in the Squak Mountain or Talus communities of Issaquah? If so, we’d like your help improving mobility solutions in your community.

King County Metro has partnered with the City of Issaquah to bring innovative mobility solutions to the Squak Mountain and Talus communities. This February, we’re asking residents and workers in Squak Mountain and Talus to help us identify local mobility needs that might be filled through our Community Connections program.

Why Squak Mountain and Talus?

While Squak Mountain and Talus are close to the Issaquah Transit Center, SR-900 and I-90, these communities are hampered by steep terrain and poor walkability. These neighborhoods lack direct access to existing transit service in Issaquah, which contributes to the lack of transit connections from these communities to nearby amenities and services.

Have a say

Community involvement

As part of this project, Metro formed a Stakeholder Working Group whose membership includes representatives from both Squak Mountain and Talus, Imagine Housing, Timber Ridge, the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, local human service providers and Issaquah schools. This group is helping us increase community awareness of and involvement in this project, identify transportation needs and gaps in Squak Mountain and Talus, and inform the development of mobility solutions to meet the community’s transportation needs.

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.
