Story

Metropolitan King County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles announced today that four organizations that serve Council District 4 will receive retired Metro Transit Vanpool vans to provide transportation assistance for low-income, older adults, young people or people with disabilities.

“I am thrilled to be able to provide these community partners with a retired vanpool van,” said Kohl-Welles. “These vans still have a lot of life left in them and I’m glad to see them put to good use serving our County residents.”

The programs that will be receiving vans are:

• Mary's Place
• Rite of Passage Journeys
• Seattle's Union Gospel Mission
• The Arc of King County

The vanpool program provides mobility for a diverse array of King County residents, supports the positive work of various local organizations, and relieves traffic congestion by reducing the need for single-occupancy vehicles.

Interested organizations can contact Councilmember Kohl-Welles for more information on applying for a vehicle.
