Since launching its first bus route in North Bend in 2003, Snoqualmie Valley Transportation has steadily grown in both size and offerings. It has also become, with funding help from King County Metro and Snoqualmie Tribe, the primary transportation service provider in the Valley. Each month, SVT drivers travel more than 24,000 miles without ever leaving the valley.
“That’s more than the circumference of the earth!” says director, Amy Biggs, “and all in pursuit of our goal to get folks where they need to go.”
Snoqualmie Valley Transportation will mark its 15th anniversary this year, with an open house celebration, free to all community members.
The community invited to visit the North Bend office at 1308 Boalch Ave NW – behind Chinook Lumber – between 11am and 5 pm Wednesday, Sept. 26th. Have a hot dog, ice cream, balloons for the kids, and learn more about how to get around in the valley if you don’t have (or want) a car.
“We’d love to see everybody there. SVT is more than just the local bus service,” says Biggs, “we’re part of the Valley family and we want to share our milestone with the community.”
