Vanpool

You’ve heard the news about the SR 99 closure and the significant impacts for commuters. King County Metro needs your help to reduce traffic and fill seats in our vans. On January 11, 2019 the closure begins and will last for at least three weeks–some ramps and roadways may be closed to traffic for up to six weeks. Rideshare Operations has three exciting solutions to assist you during the closure and beyond! Learn more about rewards that are available to new and existing vanpools!

Carpooling Apps!

Great news! For a limited time, King County Metro is sponsoring carpooling trips for all King County commuters! This means lower costs when you ride, and an even higher reimbursement when you drive, plus bonuses when you refer a friend. With these special incentives and flexible, easy-to-use carpooling apps, upgrading your commute is easier than ever. Avoid the stress of driving alone--find out more!

Viaduct Picture

It's time to get ready - Starting January 11, 2019, the Puget Sound region will experience the longest closure of a major highway when WSDOT closes the Alaskan Way Viaduct to complete the work needed to open the SR 99 tunnel three weeks later. Everyone traveling in the region will be impacted.

With some planning and creativity, it is still possible to get where you need to go during the Seattle Squeeze. This is a great time to try a new mode of travel. Be sure to try out your new commute before January 11th!  For more information on the closure visit SeattleTraffic.org.
