The City of Redmond is partnering with King County Metro and Hopelink to help provide a customized transportation option for community members that aren't currently served by other King County Metro transit services.

Community Van provides a transportation option for Redmond community members when transit service in unable to meet their needs. Community Van can be used for doctor appointments, errands, airport trips, and other outings. Community Van provides six passenger and 12 passenger vans for prescheduled trips. Trips can either be one time or reoccurring and must include two riders and one driver at a minimum. Destinations can be anywhere within a two-hour drive of Redmond and can occur any day of the week 24 hours a day.  

Trips must be scheduled at least two business days in advance of trip date through our Redmond Community Transportation Coordinator, who organizes all trips. Email communityvan@hopelink.org, call (425) 943-6721, or text 883-202-3779 to arrange a trip.
