Community Ride for LFP and most of Shoreline
launches February 5, 2019
The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Community Ride service launches February 5, 2019 in Lake Forest Park and the eastern portion of Shoreline, including Shoreline Community College.

It will provide on-demand, evening transportation service within the area.

The Community Ride service travels within a specified area instead of traveling along a fixed route with a set schedule.

Shoreline-Lake Forest Park’s service differs from existing Community Ride services in that it is app-enabled and on demand. Advanced reservations are not required, nor available.

The new service will operate in the evenings only and allow residents to easily connect to local points of interest as well as transportation hubs. 

In 2014, Shoreline’s bus route 331 ceased its evening operation due to low ridership at the time. 

Community Ride will address the resulting gap in service past 6pm.

How to use Community Ride
  • Book trips on-demand using the Community Ride app anywhere throughout the service area. Starting Tuesday, February 5, download the Community Ride app by visiting the App Store (iOS) or the Google Play store (Android) and searching “Community Ride.”
