King County Metro Transit Cuts Coming September 27

In late July, the King County Council approved a service cut package, approving specific route reductions for this September 27, and a general reduction of 188,000 hours in February 2015. Below are the routes that will be eliminated or reduced starting this fall that impact our Redmond community. If your bus route is eliminated or reduced, carpooling and vanpooling may be good alternatives for you. R-TRIP staff is happy to help you find your options

What To Do When I-90 Closes

Oh boy. This could be troublesome. Westbound I-90 closing to one lane for July 18-25th will make it very challenging for commuters.

We’re always advocates of sharing the ride, telecommuting, and riding bicycles, but this is going to be a great time to utilize all your alternative commute options. If you haven’t tried the ridematching function on RideShare Online or R-TRIP, this is the perfect opportunity to see if there are others who would like to carpool-even if it is just for the week! Ridematching takes your start and end destination, and your prefered commute times and will match you with others who are nearby, traveling at the same time. Amazing!
