About the Transportation Program

Transportation—The road to independence

Transportation places your community within reach. Each year, more than 4,000 King County seniors and adults with disabilities trust our personable and reliable drivers with their transportation needs. Our drivers not only get to know you—they get you where you need to go and home again. Make our services part of your strategy for independent, vibrant living!
