King County Metro Community Ride is an app-enabled transit option to get to local destinations and the connecting transit network. Rather than traveling along a fixed route, Community Ride offers on-demand, curb-to-curb transportation within a designated service area.

Community Ride is your connection to shopping, appointments, transit, recreation, school, social events and more. Community Ride may also connect you to transit hubs to catch a bus, get to destinations beyond your neighborhood and back home.

A Community Ride can begin and end anywhere within a designated service area during operating hours. Unlike fixed-route buses and shuttles that operate along a specific route only, Community Ride provides residents neighborhood and transit connections within a local area. Find out more about service areas and hours by selecting your community below!
