Metro signing up vanpoolers
Bus ridership isn’t the only transportation option setting records in King County these days. Metro Transit is also seeing a big jump in vanpool and vanshare participation.
“King County now sponsors more than 1,050 vanpools – approximately 100 more than last year at this time,” said King County Executive Ron Sims.
Last month, 23 new vanpools were formed and Metro is projecting another 30 new starts for the month of June. As of June 1, Metro had 889 vanpools and 169 vanshares in operation for a total of 1,058 vans on the road. It’s an 11 percent increase over the same time last year.
