The Human Services Bus Ticket Program provides subsidized bus tickets to eligible human service agencies serving persons who are homeless and/or low income.  Agencies apply for the program through an annual Request for Proposal (RFP) process administered by the Department of Community and Human Services. Starting in program year 2017, awarded agencies pay 10 percent of the value of the tickets, with King County Metro Transit Division covering the remaining 90 percent of the tickets' value.
