King County Mobility Coalition
Who we are
The Coalition facilitates the coordination of King County special needs transportation to better serve the community.
Members include special needs transportation service providers, clients and funders, from both the governmental, non-profit, and for-profit sectors from rural and urban areas throughout King County.
Our goal is to bring together individuals and organizations with a common interest in human service transportation to meet and collaborate on how best to provide transportation services for special needs individuals.
Duties of Committee members are to identify service gaps and/or barriers, strategize on solutions most appropriate to meet these needs based on local circumstances, and prioritize these needs for follow-up and project planning.
The Coalition has five subcommittees, which work on a variety of issues.
The Committee responds both to SAFETEA-LU and the State of Washington requirements for receiving federal and state funds.
We envision a transportation system in King County providing mobility for our entire community. Children and youth, older adults, people with disabilities and those with low incomes will share in a coordinated system designed to gain economies of scale, eliminate duplication and expand service availability and quality.
