Vehicles return to service for nonprofit organizations
November 20, 2012
Leaders donated used vehicles from the King County Metro Transit vanpool fleet to provide transportation assistance to local governments, community programs, seniors and youths.
King County Council members authorized the donation. The vans served in the Metro Transit vanpool fleet for at least six years and reached the end of their service life.
“Serving the mobility needs of those too young and too old to drive, as well as those with health challenges, is an important service for King County to provide,” Councilwoman Kathy Lambert, Issaquah’s representative, said in a statement.
Recipients must meet a set of requirements, including the ability to provide qualified and trained drivers, and specific plans to use the van to transport low-income, elderly or young people, or people with disabilities.
