Last chance this year to hike from Broadway to the mountains

Sunday is the final day of service for the inaugural year of Trailhead Direct service from Broadway to hiking trails up Mt. Si and Mt. Teneriffe.

King County Metro is running a survey to get feedback on the service to help plan the 2019 season.

CHS reported here on the addition of service from Capitol Hill Station under the program created to help ease parking problems at the popular trailheads as the region’s population continues to boom.

Trailhead Direct includes 19 and 27-seat vans with capacity for two bicycles for each trip. Passengers pay a $2.75 flat fare under the public-private partnership between King County and the Seattle Department of Transportation. The 2018 season was also boosted with sponsor support by REI and Clif Bar.

Did you put the new service to use? Where’d you go?

  1. We put our bikes on to get out to the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. Had to wait for the next ride because racks were full. It was standing room only by the second stop and I think they added larger shuttles a couple weeks later. We don’t have a car and while we sometimes hitch rides to hike with friends who do, I love having this option. I assume it was very popular since it was (IIRC) originally only supposed to run through Labor Day.
