Snoqualmie Valley proposal — learn more at upcoming meetings

Snoqualmie Valley mapRecognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach to transit does not meet every community’s needs, Metro began working with communities in the Snoqualmie Valley last fall to identify transportation options that are more cost effective and better meet the needs of residents and riders. That feedback has led to proposed options that will be the subject of continued community discussion at two upcoming meetings. Those meetings will be held:

Thursday, February 7
6 -7:30 p.m.
Cherry Valley Elementary School,
26701 Cherry Valley Road, Duvall

Monday, February 11
6 – 7:30 p.m.
Fall City Elementary School
33314 SE 42nd Street, Fall City

During the meeting, Metro will outline proposed adjustments that reflect the community’s desire to see improved connections between Duvall and Redmond and a more reliable and better connected valley transit network. All day service to Snoqualmie Ridge — a growing residential and employment center in the valley — was another priority shared by stakeholders.

In addition to these service adjustments, the plan points to the role vanpools and vanshares can play in providing additional transit opportunities. The effort also looks at longer-term ideas that can be explored in future years to provide more integrated transit service to valley residents.

The proposal will be available beginning Feb. 7 on Metro’s Have-a-Say website, where you will also be able to share your feedback via an online survey.
