King County Metro and the City of Redmond are working together to bring better transportation services to Education Hill, Bear Creek, Downtown and the Southeast neighborhoods of Redmond. The goal is to improve transportation options in areas that are not well served by fixed-route bus service but have demand for service that aligns with our Transportation Master Plan. Metro and the City of Redmond will use the feedback generated through this process received to develop potential solutions that Metro’s Community Connections program can help provide.
The Redmond Loop shuttle service ended on December 28, 2018. The Redmond Community Connections process will help to determine how the LOOP should be replaced. Please see the January 15, 2019 Press Release:Stakeholders Needed for Redmond Community Connections Project.
King County Metro, with Redmond’s assistance, formed a Stakeholder Working Group of nearly 20 volunteers to offer guidance on defining local needs and deriving a set of potential transportation solutions. Volunteers represent residents and businesses from different neighborhoods and will participate in four meetings in 2019. A Community Survey was conducted in May 2019 to identify mobility needs. A second Community Survey is underway to explore solutions to meet those needs. The survey is open until December 8.
