It is Ride Transit Month and IH has New Service!

April is Ride Transit Month and Issaquah Highlands can enjoy new transit services.

For those of you wishing to get around locally, Issaquah’s free Route 200 bus just added a new stop at Swedish/Issaquah on Northeast Blakely Drive. The “Freebie” as we like to call it, is a great way to get around town, to avoid that uphill climb from Fred Meyer and other great conveniences.

Transit route_200_banner1Route 200 is a mid-day bus that serves several Issaquah destinations, including the Issaquah Community Center, Issaquah City Hall, Gilman Village, Issaquah Transit Center, Issaquah Commons and the Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride.

Route 200’s schedule is available online.Shuttle bus approaching

Metro’s Community Shuttle Route #628 just got better, too! This on-demand route for commuter hours began in 2015. It provides a lift from fixed stops along Park Drive NE to the park and ride and beyond, to   North Bend, Snoqualmie Valley. All you have to do is call and make a reservation for a pick up during the service hours.

In March Metro expanded this service all the way to Blakely Hall. Do you work at Starpoint? Take the #628 up the hill in the morning and back down at the end of the day. Transfers to Metro and Sound Transit are available. Find details about the #628 here online.

The Route #628 requires curb access during its service hours. Please honor the No Parking signs Monday through Friday between the hours of 5:30 am – 9:30 am and 4:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
