King County Metro is seeking to examine innovative ways to provide alternative transportation methods and access to rural and low income areas in King County.
Triangle Associates provides facilitation support to King County Metro’s Community Connections program. This program is responsible for developing “alternative transit solutions” apart from fixed bus routes (e.g. van pools, shuttles, subsidized ride sharing). Triangle is responsible for convening 13 different stakeholder working groups across the county to help them identify alternative transit solutions that work for their particular community. Triangle meets with each stakeholder working group at least 4 times to help them select projects that meet the mobility, sustainability, and social equity goals of the community. Triangle works with various Metro project managers and helps streamline Metro’s internal processes to ensure a consistent and fair approach across the county. Triangle’s team includes transit experts from Nelson\Nygaard and multi-ethnic/multilingual communication experts from TDW+Co.
Triangle facilitates the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council to help cities, counties, tribes, and other jurisdictions across Kitsap County make shared land-use and transportation decisions.
Triangle facilitates a governmental organization that brings together 9 jurisdictions in Kitsap County to coordinate land use and transportation decisions, supports 15 elected officials who serve on the KRCC Executive Board and their planning and transportation staff by facilitating public and committee meetings, and provides strategic guidance. In addition to these services, Triangle oversees the creation of agendas, meeting summaries, and presentations to support each of these committees and implements regional and state legislative agendas by coordinating efforts across jurisdictions bordering Kitsap County.
