Access paratransit brings food to 10,000 families in need during pandemic
October is Disability Awareness Month – a month to honor individuals whom our King County Metro Access paratransit team celebrates all year long.
Metro’s Access paratransit service provides around one million trips each year to our Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) customers, allowing them to maintain independence and have access to whatever they need to thrive. It’s just one way Metro lives out its mission to provide mobility for all.
In a pandemic, that mobility has looked a little different: Access paratransit has mobilized both people and the food they depended on as a part of its COVID-19 response.
