King County Mobility Coalition
The King County Mobility Coalition currently has five subcommittees, which work on a variety of issues, and a Steering Committee. Anyone can participate in the subcommittees. If you are interested in joining a subcommittee, please contact Michelle Zeidman at email@example.com.
The Steering Committee provides leadership to the Coalition and includes the Co-Chairs, Mobility Manager and other interested members of the Coalition.
This group is tasked with filling vacancies on the coalition and reviewing the coalition’s composition at least annually. It also keeps track of which outside groups coalition members participate in or affiliated with, including ACCT working groups.
Targeted Outreach Subcommittee
This group is tasked with coordinating efforts to educate riders and human service providers, including planning outreach events. It also provides input on other organizations’ outreach materials and helps develop clear educational information for riders and human services providers.
Government Affairs Working Group
This group is tasked with conducting outreach to elected officials and decision-makers on behalf of the full committee at the local, regional, state and federal level. It collaborates with ACCT working groups to reduce funding barriers, such as streamlining eligibility requirements for riders on federally and state funded transportation services. It may also work with local and regional planning agencies to ensure that the transportation needs of seniors, people with disabilities, people with low incomes and children/youth are incorporated in local planning policies and programs.
This group serves as a resource to agencies who want to increase their use of technology by sharing best practices and focusing on connecting transportation users with each other and with transportation providers through the use of technology.
Livable Communities Subcommittee
This group is tasked with incorporating livable communities’ strategies, such as universal design and complete streets, into the Coalition’s work and into the provision of special needs transportation.
