We're working hard to connect our urban communities to nature! Our research shows 62 percent of kids polled say lack of transportation keeps them from experiencing the outdoors. Fortunately, public transit systems offer a great way to experience Washington's nature.
Our friends at TOTAGO (Turn Off The App - Go Outside) help you find public transit and shuttles to recreational destinations throughout the state. And if you're not sure where to go, you can visit TOTAGO's Tumblr Page for inspiration from the car free adventures of other hikers.
If you're looking for outdoor adventures around the Seattle area, King County has a new shuttle service, Trailhead Direct, which provides weekend bus service to three trailheads in the Issaquah Alps.
