The City collaborates with local, regional, and private sector partners to plan, facilitate, monitor, and evaluate public transit services operated by King County Metro and Sound Transit.

The Transportation Department leverages data from operators to monitor transit performance. Progress toward achieving the transit service vision identified in the 2014 Bellevue Transit Master Plan is measured related to service availability, service usage, person throughput and transit travel time (see the Measures of Effectiveness Report).

Ride2 was an on-demand, van-based shuttle service funded by King County Metro that supported the fixed-route public transit system, connecting people from their homes, schools, and job sites to the Eastgate Park & Ride. The pilot service launched on Oct. 23, 2018 and concluded after twelve months (see Metro's summary report).
