On weekdays, Community Shuttle Route 628 will operate about every 30 minutes between 5-8 am and 5-9 pm.

To schedule service in this area, call 855-233-6043.

Route 628 will operate via SR-202, Snoqualmie Parkway, SE Ridge St, Douglas Ave SE, I-90 and Highlands Drive NE. It will also operate a reverse peak-period express service (eastbound in the morning and westbound in the evening) to and from the Factory Outlet Mall in North Bend and the Issaquah Highlands P&R via I-90.
