King County Metro Transit and Senior Services’ transportation program haveÂ expanded the free Hyde Shuttle community van service to Auburn.
The shuttles, which are lift-equipped, serve seniors who are 55 or older and people with disabilities. Rides are provided between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays to Auburn Senior Center, grocery stores, libraries, banks, cultura and social activities, and errand destinations.
Vans deployed for the shuttle service operate within the Auburn city limits. The rides are free, although donations are accepted, officials said. Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance by calling 206-727-6262. There are no applications to fill out or in-person screening for eligibility.
