Crossroads Connect Partnership
Crossroads Connect is brought to you by City of Bellevue in partnership with King County Metro. The service is made possible by a $394,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Transportation and by funding from Bellevue’s 2016, voter-approved Neighborhood Safety, Connectivity and Congestion Levy.
Providing an innovative, new way to connect to transit service, Crossroads Connect is intended to improve mobility and respond to unmet travel needs.
