Story

Redesigned transit services geared toward serving more valley residents

The Snoqualmie Valley is poised to become the first area in King County to see a package of redesigned transit services tailor made to the needs of valley residents.

Recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach to transit does not meet every community’s needs, Metro began working with valley residents last fall to identify transportation options that are more cost effective and better meet the needs of residents and riders. The Snoqualmie Tribe has also been an important partner. 

That feedback has now produced proposed options that will be the subject of continued community discussion at two upcoming meetings.  Those meetings will be held:

Thursday, February 7
6-7:30 p.m.
Cherry Valley Elementary School,
26701 Cherry Valley Road, Duvall

Monday, February 11
6-7:30 p.m.
Fall City Elementary School
33314 SE 42nd Street, Fall City

Metro’s proposal includes adjustments that reflect the community’s desire to see all day service to Snoqualmie Ridge -- a growing residential and employment center in the valley.  Improved connections between Duvall and Redmond and a more reliable and better connected valley transit network were also priorities shared by stakeholders. 

In addition to these service adjustments, the plan points to the role vanpools and vanshares can play in providing additional transit opportunities

The effort also looks at longer-term ideas that can be explored in future years to provide more integrated transit service to valley residents. 

During the community meetings, Metro will provide an overview of the proposed service adjustments and answer questions.  The proposal will also be available beginning Feb. 7 on Metro’s Have-a-Say website. You can also share your feedback via our online survey.
