Grand Opening Celebration Slated for the New Redmond Loop Shuttle Service

REDMOND, WA — The City of Redmond is partnering with King County Metro to pilot the “Redmond LOOP,” a new shuttle service available to everyone in the community. The Loop Grand Opening celebration will be held at 4:00 pm on Friday, September 9, 2016, in front of City Hall located at 15670 NE 85th Street. The Redmond LOOP is part of Metro’s Alternative Service program—which aims to forge partnerships with local communities and bring mobility services to parts of King County where traditional fixed-route bus service may not be a good fit.

“Creating travel choices and improving local transit options are priorities for the City. The Redmond LOOP adds a new type of transit service, and helps us meet a wider variety of local travel needs,” stated Mayor John Marchione.
The Redmond LOOP arrives every 45 minutes on weekdays between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm to meet the mid-day travel needs of Redmond residents, visitors and employees in the LOOP service area. The LOOP will travel from the Redmond Transit Center through Education Hill, along Avondale to Bear Creek Park & Ride and then along Redmond Way with a stop by Redmond Town Center before heading back to the Transit Center. During the summer months, riders throughout Redmond have been able to ride the LOOP for free and become familiar with its route. Starting Monday, September 12, 2016, a standard Metro one-zone fare will be charged per ride.
