Request a Trip

The Community Van program provides 6-passenger and 12-passenger vans for pre-scheduled rides - either one-time or recurring - involving a minimum of two passengers plus a volunteer driver. Trip destinations can be anywhere within two hours of Kirkland and can occur during the daytime, evenings, and weekends. This is a way for community members to plan customized trips when bus service can't meet their needs. Take advantage of Community Van for trips to the airport, appointments, errands, or outings! Also please consider signing up to be a volunteer driver.

How it works?

  • Request a trip a minimum of 48 hours in advance. We can sometimes accommodate last-minute requests.

  • Valid trips using vehicles in the Kirkland-Kenmore Community Van program must either have a passenger pickup location (trip origin) or passenger drop-off location (trip destination) that is within the boundaries of the cities of Kirkland or Kenmore. For other cities that are also operating Community Van programs, see King County's Community Van webpage

  • Each rider pays a Metro one-zone fare for the round trip, while the driver travels for free.
  • All three vans are wheelchair accessible.
