To date, Community Connections has developed three new service solutions: Community Ride, Community Van and Real-Time Rideshare.
Metro is also considering new ideas which includes buses that respond to real-time requests, promotional partnerships with Taxi and Transportation Network companies, and “space-available open door” access to eligibility-based services. As we continue to work with communities on our pilot projects, we expect to develop other ideas for innovative, customized services.
Community Connections outreach is part of Metro’s Mobility Division. Metro is committed to becoming a mobility agency that both provides public transportation and combines new travel options. By becoming a mobility agency, Metro is positioned to fulfill our mission: Provide the best possible public transportation services and improve regional mobility and quality of life in King County. Community Connections outreach contributes to this vision by identifying and implementing new and innovative mobility solutions that complement public transit in King County.
