Community Shuttles for Seniors and People with Disabilities Request for Qualification

The Aging and Disability Services Division of the City of Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) is accepting applications from agencies interested in providing community-based-response transportation service for seniors and people with disabilities in Seattle and South King County. The purpose of the Community Shuttles is to provide a community-based transportation service in King County and offer an affordable and accessible mobility option for seniors and people with disabilities. Six Shuttles funded through this process will serve the City of Seattle, with a seventh shuttle serving Seattle and or/Tukwila.

$1.1 million is available through this Request for Qualification (RFQ). This funding is provided by the Federal Transit Administration Section 5310, Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and People with Disabilities Program, and King County Metro. HSD intends to fund a single applicant for this service. This amount is anticipated to be sufficient to fund seven shuttles for two years. Applications requesting funding above this amount will not be considered.
