Transportation for Pandemic Response
A service of Public Health — Seattle & King County
Beginning Friday, April 3, King County Metro launched Transportation for Pandemic Response (TPR) - a separate program and transportation system to transport individuals who are confirmed or presumed carriers of COVID-19. This specialized service is a partnership between Public Health - Seattle & King County and King County Metro.
This service utilizes specially modified Access vehicles to service this unique situation. Access vehicles in service with TPR are removed from the Access Transportation program and retrofitted by Metro with a barrier that isolates the driver cabin. Operators and utility personnel volunteer to serve TPR and are removed from serving regular Access service. All cleaning and maintenance operations occur at a separate,dedicated operations base.
