A new shuttle service is expected to ease traffic congestion at some popular hiking trails, including Mount Si. The shuttle schedule is coordinated with King County Metro bus arrivals, so people can reach the trailheads from Seattle without driving

 

North Bend officials hope a new shuttle service will ease traffic congestion at some of the area’s most popular hiking trails, including Mount Si.

The city has teamed with the state Department of Natural Resources, the Washington Trails Association and the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust to offer the shuttle, which will run every half-hour on summer weekends from the park-and-ride in downtown North Bend. Stops include the Little Si, Mount Si and Teneriffe trailheads.

Supporters say they hope to expand the service as it gains popularity. Future destinations could include the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Valley, Rattlesnake Lake and other hiking, biking or kayaking routes.

The shuttle schedule is also coordinated with King County Metro bus arrivals, so people can reach the trailheads from Seattle without driving. Round-trip shuttle fare is $5.
