Do you live in or around Normandy Park? If so, we’d like your help improving transportation there.
Metro has partnered with the City of Normandy Park to bring innovative transportation service to its residents. Nearly 580 residents completed our survey last fall to tell us about transportation needs in the city. We used this input to develop four transportation service concepts to address those needs. Now we’re asking residents to tell us what they think about these concepts.
Four service concepts
Metro vans for local group trips, scheduled by a Community Transportation Coordinator to meet local needs.
Use a smartphone application to coordinate rideshare groups, on demand, for one round trip each workday to reserved parking at a park-and-ride. Screened volunteer drivers pick up and drop off registered riders along the way. Trip requests, pickup locations, and fares are coordinated by riders and drivers on their smartphones through a free mobile app.
A reservation-based service that travels within a specified service area based on where people want to go.
One or more physical locations throughout the city’s residential area where residents can gather to take shared trips.
Why Normandy Park?
Today, Normandy Park does not have good connections to high-capacity regional transit. There’s no way to get to Link light rail by transit without a transfer. Buses don’t come very often along First Avenue S (Normandy Park’s main corridor), and they’re too far away for many residents to reach on foot. Yet the city is home to a number of employers and a growing senior population that would benefit from new transportation solutions in the area.

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.
