Solid Ground and King County Metro introduced the new Community Access Transportation bus to Center Park residents on March 6.

The new bus is a low-floor vehicle having the ability to accommodate up to six wheelchair users and people using walkers, plus up to 15 people who do not use mobility devices. This new vehicle, which will be operated by Solid Ground, replaces two 35-foot vehicles owned by METRO that served Center Park for over 20 years and were ready to be retired from active service.

A grassroots movement persuaded the King County Council to reverse an earlier decision to terminate services in the area. The CAT bus is prioritized for Center Park residents but accessible to qualifying individuals living in the Judkins Park neighborhood.
