People who want to improve public transportation or have ideas about how Metro might better serve communities in the Snoqualmie Valley are invited to attend two upcoming public meetings. The meetings, which will include an opportunity to talk one-on-one with Metro staff, will help shape future transportation services in the valley. People are also invited to provide feedback about their travel needs via an online survey at The deadline for survey comments is Nov. 4.

The community meetings will be held:

Wednesday, Nov. 7, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Cherry Valley Elementary School
26701 Cherry Valley Road, Duvall

Tuesday, Nov. 13, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Fall City Elementary School
33314 SE 42nd Street, Fall City

The Snoqualmie Valley is the first of several rural areas where Metro is shaping future bus service as part of the County’s newly adopted Transit Alternative Services Plan.  The plan establishes a framework for how fixed-route bus service – along with potential alternatives to this costly service – might look like in less populated areas of the county as Metro looks for ways to get the most out of every available transit dollar. In addition to operating regularly scheduled bus service, Metro provides alternative services such as community vans, dial-a-ride transit, and ridesharing options.
