Transportation | Hopelink


From critical trips to kidney dialysis and chemotherapy treatments for cancer patients, to daily trips to Children’s Hospital and for seniors who must have routine medical visits to avoid nursing homes, transportation can make the crucial difference between being homebound and isolated, or healthy and active.

Hopelink Transportation includes three programs: DART Transit, Medicaid Transportation and Mobility Management.

Dart Transit

Hopelink provides public DART Transit through a contract with King County Metro. DART offers bus routes in some neighborhoods using mini buses that can go off regular routes to pick up and drop off passengers. DART operates on a fixed schedule, but one that has more flexibility than regular Metro Transit buses. Standard public transit fare applies to this service.

To schedule a DART ride, please submit a request through the DART Ride Request page, or call 866.261.DART during the specified hours that can be found on the DART Ride Request page. 

Medicaid Transportation

Hopelink also provides Non-Emergency Medical Transportation in King and Snohomish counties for medical services covered by Medicaid.

For more information, or to schedule a ride in King or Snohomish County, please visit our Medicaid Transporation page. 

To check the status of a ride, cancel a trip, provide feedback or to let Hopelink know your ride is late, visit our MyRideOnline page. 

To request a ride by fax, please use this downloadable form: Trip Request Form

Transportation companies interested in providing services should download this application form. 

Mobility Management

Hopelink’s Mobility Management team provides education and resources through three travel training programs in King County: Travel Ambassadors, Mobilize! Public Transit Orientation, and Getting Around Puget Sound (GAPS).

Community Van

Hopelink provides trip coordination and promotion for the Community Van through a contract with King County Metro. This service provides shared rides, either one-time or recurring, to popular destinations and are available throughout the day, evening and on weekends. Trips must be scheduled in advance through a local Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC). To request a seat, or to work with your CTC to propose a new trip, call 425.943.6760 during business hours. Vans are driven by volunteer drivers. Click here for full details.

Veterans Transportation

Do you or someone you know who is a veteran or military service member face transportation challenges? There are many transportation options available to veterans and service members, however, many are not aware of the options beyond public transit.

VetsGO is designed to serve as a single web destination for veterans, service members, and their families to access the available transportation options in King County, Washington and the adjoining counties in the central Puget Sound region.

 

Find a Ride

FindARide.org is an online resource for transportation services in the central Puget Sound region. Transportation options include public transit, special needs transportation, and community shuttles. FindARide.org was envisioned as a gateway to transportation options in the Puget Sound area. The site was created and managed by Sound Transit until 2015, and is now a service of Hopelink.

Bicycle Safety

Bicycle Safety Introduction

Bicycling is a common means of transportation as well as an increasingly popular source of recreation, exercise, and sport. With more than 100 million bicycle owners, the popularity of bicycling has reached an all-time high.

Along with increased use of bicycles comes the risk of significant injuries. According to national statistics, more than 1.8 billion bicycle outings occur each year, resulting in nearly 494,000 visits to emergency departments. Injuries related to bicycling range from common abrasions, cuts, and bruises to broken bones, internal injuries, head trauma, and even death.

More than 900 bicyclists die annually, and 20,000 are admitted to hospitals. From a statistical standpoint, bicycle riding has a higher death rate per trip or per mile of travel than being a passenger in an automobile. The majority of bicycle deaths are caused by head injuries.

The most common cause of bicycle crashes are falls or collisions with stationary objects.


Principles of Bicycle Safety

 

The best preparation for safe bicycle riding is proper training. Common resources for training include an experienced rider, parent, or community program. Often, however, initial training involves simple instruction from parents on balance and pedaling.

Proper supervision of younger riders is a must . In fact, it is recommended that younger children ride only in enclosed areas.

Early investment in safety equipment such as protective clothing and a helmet can prevent a significant number of injuries. Proper equipment safety preparation include:

  • Helmets – Extremely important
  • Reflective clothing for nighttime or low-visibility conditions
  • Bicycle safety equipment (reflectors on frame and wheels)
  • Proper bicycle selection
  • Proper bicycle maintenance

Consider these ideas to help further reduce the risk of a bicycle accident.

  • A bicycle should only be used in a way that’s appropriate for the age of the rider.
  • A bicycle rider needs to have the proper experience and skill before riding on public roads.
  • Less experienced bicyclists should learn the rules of the road.
  • Both bicyclists and motorists need to understand how to safely and courteously share the road.
  • Both motorist and bicyclist need to observe the proper speed limits, yield right-of-way, not drive while drinking.
  • Bicyclists need to be aware of their surroundings. Watch for opening car doors, sewer grating, debris on the roads, uneven surfaces, and poorly lit areas.

Continued

Obeying traffic rules can help ensure safe travel.

  • Cyclists need to follow the same rules as motorists.
  • Always use correct hand signals before turning.
  • Ride in single file with traffic, not against it.

Use these guidelines to increase cycling safety:

  • Avoid major roads and sidewalks.
  • Announce your presence (“On your left”) on bike and walking trails as you come up behind and pass pedestrians and other riders.

Enforcement and legislation can increase bicycle safety. Promote safety by supporting:

  • The mandated use of protective devices (helmets, reflectors)
  • Bicycle-friendly community and community planning, for

As well as handing over the keys, the buyer and the seller of a vehicle need to take these steps to transfer its ownership.

Steps for the seller

Steps for the seller

  1. Pick up a Transfer/Tax Form (APV9T) from any Autoplan broker. Due to COVID-19, the Transfer/Tax Form (APV9T) is temporarily available for download; please note that original signatures are still required.
  2. Remove your licence plates from the vehicle you’re selling.
  3. Remove your insurance and registration. The insurance and registration are actually two parts of the same document (APV250).
  4. Tear off (carefully please!) the bottom, vehicle registration portion.
  5. Give the registration to the buyer, making sure it has your signature on it. (It must be the original registration, not a photocopy.)
  6. After you’ve been paid, fill out and sign the Transfer/Tax Form in full. Each of the four pages must have original signatures.
  7. To complete the transfer, take the registration and Transfer/Tax Form to an Autoplan broker. We strongly recommend going together with the buyer to ensure that the registration transfer is processed in a timely manner and that your name and any insurance and licence products are removed from the vehicle registration record. This is important in avoiding any possible liability claims associated with the future operation of the vehicle by the purchaser. If you cannot visit the Autoplan broker with the buyer, keep the seller’s copy (with original signatures from both you and the seller) for your records.
  8. Remember to cancel your insurance or transfer it to a new vehicle.​

Steps for the buyer

Steps for the buyer

  1. Get the original vehicle registration, with the owner’s signature on it, from the seller.
  2. Fill out and sign in full the purchaser’s portion of the Transfer/Tax Form (APV9T). Due to COVID-19, the Transfer/Tax Form (APV9T) is temporarily available for download. Each of the four pages must have original signatures — electronic signatures are not accepted.

  3. To complete the transfer, take these documents to an Autoplan broker. We strongly recommend going together with the seller.

You can get the vehicle registered, licensed and insured at the broker’s at the same time.​

Using plates from your old vehicle

Using plates from your old vehicle

You can drive your “new” vehicle using the licence plates from your old one for 10 days from the date of purchase if all of these conditions are met:

  • The vehicle you’re switching plates to is registered in B.C. (or was purchased from a licensed B.C. auto dealer).
  • You have sold or otherwise disposed of your old vehicle.
  • Both vehicles are the same type

Easterseals | Transportation Services


As part of our mission to break down barriers to inclusion for people with disabilities, we’re committed to helping those we serve get where they need, and want, to go via accessible transportation. Through the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center, we help people find rides and transportation resources to reach employment, appointments, shopping and other destinations. We also can support an organization’s ability to connect with transportation and mobility services in their community through our mobility management work. The National Center for Mobility Management can help you identify those people and organizations in your state, region, or local community that could connect you to the most appropriate transportation service and support the development of coordinated transportation networks.

NADTC logoThe National Aging and Disability Transportation Center can help people with disabilities and older adults find out about their community’s available transportation services and connect individuals with transportation operators and mobility managers who can assist in finding transportation when they need it.

National Center for Mobility ManagementThe National Center for Mobility Management promotes customer-centered mobility strategies that advance good health, economic vitality, self-sufficiency, and community. NCMM can assist individuals and communities through dissemination of promising practices, a monthly e-newsletter, and customized technical assistance.

Steps to helping you or your client find transportation:

Step 1 – Identify Transportation Needs

  • Determine where you want to travel, how often, and the general hours or time of day that you need transportation services.
  • Find out whether you are able to use regular public transportation service or would want to participate in travel training or mentoring to learn how to use bus or rail transit.
  • If you cannot use regular public transit or private transportation options (e.g., taxi, shared-ride, volunteer drivers), identify whether you will need to meet eligibility requirements for ADA complementary paratransit service or age or income requirements for Medicaid non-emergency medical transportation so that you are aware of the process and paperwork involved to apply for those services.

Step 2 – Connect to a Local Mobility Manager

A mobility manager is an employee of a transit or human service agency who offers on-on-one counseling or group education on transportation options and alternatives to driving. A referral to a local mobility manager will put you in touch with a transportation expert who can offer information on transportation services that are available in the area, offer guidance on how to find a ride, and in some cases, arrange or coordinate rides. A mobility manager’s job is to take a person-centered approach to finding the right transportation based on an individual’s needs.

If you are unable to locate a mobility manager, you can reach out to an Information and Referral Specialist, an Aging and Disability Resource Center, or a 2-1-1 program (see Step 3 for phone numbers and websites).

Step 3 – Learn about Transportation Options in Your Community

Creating a comprehensive list of transportation resources and options can be a daunting task, but chances are others in your community may have already done so. Transportation

Vehicle Repossession | FTC Consumer Information

Chances are you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go — and when you need to go — whether it’s to work, school, the grocery store, or the soccer field. But if you’re late with your car payments, or in some states, if you don’t have adequate auto insurance, your vehicle could be taken away from you.

When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor or lessor has important rights that end once you’ve paid off your loan or lease obligation. These rights are established by the contract you signed and the law of your state. For example, if you don’t make timely payments on the vehicle, your creditor may have the right to “repossess” — ­or take back your car without going to court or warning you in advance. Your creditor also may be able to sell your contract to a third party, called an assignee, who may have the same right to seize the car as the original creditor.

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, wants you to know that your creditor’s rights may be limited. Some states impose rules about how your creditor may repossess the vehicle and resell it to reduce or eliminate your debt. Creditors that violate any rules may lose other rights against you, or have to pay you damages.

Seizing the Vehicle

In many states, your creditor can seize your vehicle as soon as you default on your loan or lease. Your contract should state what constitutes a default, but failure to make a payment on time is a typical example.

However, if your creditor agrees to change your payment date, the terms of your original contract may not apply any longer. If your creditor agrees to such a change, make sure you have it in writing. Oral agreements are difficult to prove.

Once you are in default, the laws of most states permit the creditor to repossess your car at any time, without notice, and to come onto your property to do so. But when seizing the vehicle, your creditor may not commit a “breach of the peace.” In some states, that means using physical force, threats of force, or even removing your car from a closed garage without your permission.

Should there be a breach of the peace in seizing your car, your creditor may be required to pay a penalty or to compensate you if any harm is done to you or your property. A breach of peace also may give you a legal defense if your creditor sues you to collect a “deficiency judgment” — that is, the difference between what you owe on the contract (plus repossession and sale expenses) and what your creditor gets from the resale of your vehicle.

Selling the Vehicle

Once your vehicle has been repossessed, your creditor may decide to either keep it as compensation for your debt or resell it in a public or private sale. In some states, your creditor must let

Kids and Bicycle Safety

Safe Riding Tips
Before using your bicycle, make sure it is ready to ride. You should always

inspect your bike to make sure all parts are secure and working properly.

Remember to:

  • Wear a Properly Fitted Bicycle Helmet. Protect your brain, save your life. For more information see the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration publication

    “Easy Steps to Properly Fit a Bicycle Helmet.”
  • Adjust Your Bicycle to Fit. Stand over your bicycle. There should be 1 to 2 inches between you and the top tube (bar) if using a road bike and 3 to 4 inches if a mountain bicycle. The seat should be level front to back. The seat height should be adjusted to allow a slight bend at the knee when the leg is fully extended. The handlebar height should be at the same level with the seat.
  • Check Your Equipment. Before riding, inflate tires properly and check that your brakes work.
  • See and Be Seen. Whether daytime, dawn, dusk, foul weather, or at night, you need to be seen by others. Wearing white has not been shown to make you more visible. Rather, always wear neon, fluorescent, or other bright colors when riding day or night. Also wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights. Remember, just because you can see a driver doesn’t mean the driver can see you.
  • Control Your Bicycle. Always ride with at least one hand on the handlebars. Carry books and other items in a bicycle carrier or backpack.
  • Watch for and Avoid Road Hazards. Be on the lookout for hazards such as potholes, broken glass, gravel, puddles, leaves, and dogs. All these hazards can cause a crash. If you are riding with friends and you are in the lead, yell out and point to the hazard to alert the riders behind you.
  • Avoid Riding at Night. It is far more dangerous to ride at night than during the day because you are harder for others to see. If you have to ride at night, wear something that makes you more easily seen by others. Make sure you have reflectors on the front and rear of your bicycle (white lights on the front and red rear reflectors are required by law in many States), in addition to reflectors on your tires, so others can see you.

Many bicycle-related crashes resulting in injury or death are associated with the bicyclist’s behavior, including such things as not wearing a bicycle helmet, riding into a street without stopping, turning left or swerving into traffic that is coming from behind, running a stop sign, and riding the wrong way in traffic. To maximize your safety, always wear a helmet AND follow the rules of the road.

Rules of the Road – Bicycling on the Road    

Bicycles in many States are considered vehicles, and cyclists have the same rights and the same responsibilities to follow the rules of
