Get In The Know: Alternative Service Delivery — First Project
Introducing new transportation services for the Snoqualmie Valley
Beginning Sept. 28, residents of the Snoqualmie Valley will have access to an expanded network of transit service. The services, developed with extensive community input, will be more effective and will cost less than traditional fixed-route bus service alone. Metro will make changes to routes 209, 224, and 311, and a new intra-valley shuttle will be created. Learn more by clicking the buttons at right.
This new service network will be tailored to fit the valley’s needs.
- All-day service to Snoqualmie Ridge will be provided on new Route 208 (learn more).
- A new Snoqualmie Intra-Valley Shuttle will connect the communities of Duvall, Carnation, Fall City, Snoqualmie, and North Bend. Flexible routing will be available on Route 224 in Duvall and some parts of North Bend (learn more).
- Route 224 will provide more trips between Duvall and Redmond and expanded service to Redmond Ridge (learn more).
Other transportation options
In addition to operating bus service, Metro provides assistance with vanpools and carpools. Go to Metro Online to learn more about ridesharing or call 206-625-4500.
Metro held a first round of public outreach in October and November 2012. This gave us a better understanding of the community’s transportation needs, allowing us to create a proposal to redesign Metro service in the area. We held a second round of public outreach in February, including community meetings in Duvall and Fall City, and got feedback on our proposed changes to existing Metro service and on potential new transportation options in the Snoqualmie Valley.
Our goal is to complete this project according to the following timeline:
- October 2012 to February 2013—Metro engages the community and stakeholders in designing transportation services for the Snoqualmie Valley
- March 2013—Metro recommends transportation service changes to the King County Council
- April/May 2013—King County Council reviews and adopts transportation service changes for the Snoqualmie Valley
- September 2013—Metro makes changes to transportation service
