FindARide.org [external link] is a gateway to transportation options in the Puget Sound area for persons with disabilities, senior citizens and others with special transportation needs. It provides links to transportation tools such as the transit trip planner, and includes a searchable database to allow people with special transportation needs, case managers, and agencies to find transportation in the Central Puget Sound Region. The database provides information on transit agencies; other transportation providers; agencies which help riders pick providers or arrange for rides; agencies which pay for rides; rideshare and vanpool information; home delivery; and programs which lend, rent or purchase vehicles for people with special needs.
The King County Accessible Services Advisory Committee provides suggestions and recommendations to the King County Department of Transportation on transportation services for elderly people and people with disabilities. Its purpose is to empower the disability community to obtain equality of opportunity and maximum independence in using public transit.
