New Snoqualmie Valley Metro Bus Routes Begin September 28th

Want to take a bus to Seattle for an afternoon Mariners or Sounders game?  If it were last Saturday, Valley residents who wanted to leave their cars behind and ride the bus had limited (if no) options – unless they drove to an Issaquah park and ride.

Today, September 28, 2013, that changed as King County Metro Transit launches new bus routes in the Snoqualmie Valley.  Residents can now catch new route 208, which will get them to the Issaquah Transit Center and then on to Seattle if needed.

Here’s a breakdown of the new Metro services that begin today:

Bus Route 208

On weekdays and Saturdays, new Route 208 provides all-day service between North Bend and Issaquah via Snoqualmie Ridge. Route 208 will replace Route 209 routing on Boalch Ave NW and NW 14th St in North Bend.

All Route 209 trips will be converted to Route 208 trips, except for three morning trips leaving North Bend at 5:08, 6:10 and 7:30 am and three afternoon trips leaving the Issaquah TC at 4:41, 5:44 and 6:36 pm. Route 209 will no longer operate on Saturdays. Alternative service between Fall City, Snoqualmie and North Bend will be provided by the new Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) Shuttle.

New Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) Shuttle

As part of a five-year project, Metro contracts with Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) to operate a new shuttle service in the Snoqualmie Valley. On weekdays, the shuttle will operate about every 90 minutes on a fixed route between Duvall, Carnation, Fall City, Snoqualmie and North Bend. It also provides service on request within flexible routing areas in Duvall and North Bend. To schedule service in these areas, call 425-888-7001.

The SVT shuttle will operate via NE Big Rock Road, Carnation-Duvall Road NE, Fall City-Carnation Road SE, SE Fall City-Carnation Road, Railroad Ave NE and W North Bend Way, and serve the Snoqualmie Casino and Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. There is no set fare for this service but donations will be requested.
