Transportation Services for Those in Need
Snow Goose Transit is a program aimed at addressing significant mobility gaps that exists in connecting Camano Island, Stanwood, Smokey Point, and other local communities—especially for those with mobility challenges, older adults, and low-income. Existing fixed route transit services are not frequent enough, do not make needed connections to important destinations, and existing paratransit services do not adequately extend over county lines. These services are unreasonable in length, and do not serve the entire community.
After opening in January, we helped 37 residents in our first quarter. Our ridership increased by 500% each quarter thereafter. In quarter two we assisted over 220 residents followed by 460 in quarter three.
